Est. 2013 - BONES Artisan
Our endeavor began in 2013 with the introduction of our first line of trendy handbags. A style still represented by our very awesome logo. We think handbags are amazing because you don't have to be a particular size or height to wear them, yet a simple dress combined with a fantastic handbag can completely transform an outfit. In fact, a great handbag can be downright mood altering and even project how you feel. That is, if you can find what you're looking for.
While serial production and mass marketing have led to an abundance of fashion items, they're often interchangeable or impersonal. This 'one size fits all' approach can make finding that perfect fashion item quite a challenge.
2015 - A mission to create the perfect bag
So it was in 2015 that we we introduced the Artisan collection, handcrafted with the greatest possible care by craftsmen from Isfahan, "the gem of ancient Persia". An Iranian city renowned for centuries for its metier and artistic talent.
Each piece is processed using only the best materials. This traditional method of manufacturing doesn't just make each bag unique, but it fades the line between product and artistry. Never will two bags be identical.
We initially focused on a proven age old material: leather. With proper care a quality leather bag will not only last a lifetime, but it will improve with age as it begins to exhibit new qualities, such as greater softness, strength and visual appeal.
Gradually we expanded our collection and introduced other materials such as wool and cotton. However, this was only one part of the equation. The other was design and tailoring as per the wishes of the wearer.
2016 - Be confident in your own style
We believe that it shouldn't matter how a person dresses, be it elegant, lavish, outrageous or subtle, but we do aim to give you the means to curate your personal identity.
As our customer base gradually broadened we set ourselves the goal to create fashion pieces that our customers really love and want to invest in.
2017 - Boutique, atelier & our first garments
It was therefore with great pleasure that we opened our first boutique and atelier in 2017. Situated right in the heart of Tilburg at only 300 meters from the Central Station. It is here where you can see, sense and smell each item and try out different samples.
Our atelier gave us the freedom to expand our accessories collection, set up our very own line of fully customizable bags and introduce our first garments. At BONES Artisan we aim to give you the means to curate your personal style. As such, we provide our customers with a complete and sustainable made-to-order service for almost any accessory or garment. Each piece is meticulously crafted according to your specifications, using only the best materials. A great design is ultimately about having something specially made for you.
We put our hearts and souls into each of our products and we do our utmost best to create something that will accompany its wearer for a lifetime. This is why we take great pride in seeing our customers carry our pieces. It is the moment that we see our hard labor take fruition.
