le.sens was founded in 2008 in hamburg, germany by designer leonie sens. the product philosophy behind le.sens is driven by both an unique artistic vision and the aim to create and produce pieces that are setting standards for design, quality and craftsmanship.
the designs of the le.sens collections are pushing the limits and re-defining the concepts of traditional scarf design. they are colorful and inspiring in a fresh and unique way while at the same time very organic and textile. leonie sens has developed an individual language and iconography that is evident in every collection, yet every collection creates a new and sublime imaginary microcosmos around its own poetic story board.
every design starts as a meticulous hand drawing and is then taken through a careful manufacturing process in le.sens' own hamburg based workshops.
le.sens accessories are made from a selection of highest quality fabrics that are exclusively provided by world leading italian mills. the variety of the natural-fibers-only materials includes finest cashmere, cashmere-silk, wool, linen, silk-cotton and cotton-voile fabrics. all pieces are individually made on order by employing the traditional artisan craft of screen printing in combination with eco-friendly water based colors. every piece is finally sewn, washed and finished by hand.
the designs of the autumn/winter 15/16 collection gradientgravity are playful artistic explorations of the vital philosophical questions of todays life: where do we stand, how can we explore and find new directions, how can we reconnect with nature, what are the goals in life. inspired by these "big questions“ every design shows a metaphoric interpretation of different positive situations and their emotional contents - ranging from feelings of home and being sheltered to the excitement of adventurous exploration and intellectual wanderlust.
