Further information about our products
Niels Peeraer bags have no stitching, but are made fully by assembling through screws and hardware. Through this we can achieve much cleaner lines and strength on our pieces. Instead of covering the beautiful inside of leather, we use a special waxing process as finishing, creating a smooth and clean surface also on the inside of the leather.
Touch as many hearts as possible with our cuteness, not through mass-production and cutting corners but through respect for the old leather-craftsmanship and our attention to detail.
the functionality of a nice architectural volume, the beauty and quality of the traditional craftmanship, combined with our signature bows and details that make our bags so unique.
