Odisea L

Inspired by architectural lines and natural forms, this timeless piece will be your trusty companion as you travel through life’s journey. Confidently and elegantly, just as you are.

Skillfully crafted from soft textured bovine leather, with smooth nappa sides and colour accented outline. The structured slate black body is innately shaped by a split, which lends it its distinctive silhouette and practical volume.


  • Description

    Inside, a single compartment provides ample space for your belongings, while opening up generously for easy access. Fully rendered in a vibrant satin-finish nappa leather, it affirms that true beauty comes from within. A flatpocket and signature ensomono imprint, round off its interior.

    A spacious pouch complements its practical side. Use it to keep your smaller items at hand or wear it independently as a clutch. The pouch has three integrated flat/card pockets, and is equally lined with colourful nappa leather.

    The double shoulder strap has a satisfying consistency. Comfortably resting on your shoulder, it can occasionally be worn as a single cross-body/long strap. In addition, you can leave it conveniently on your shoulder when opening the bag.

    The bag simply closes by itself thanks to the looped strap, so no extra closures or magnets have been incorporated. A single ring and EM mark of approval, keeps the hardware to a minimum, not to interfere with the clarity of the design.

Odisea M

This smaller edition is just like its more voluminous sibling, reminiscent of an equestrian-style saddle bag. It shares many of its characteristics: Odisea’s signature contour, strong appearance and excellence in craftsmanship.

It’s also equally elegant and versatile, with its adjustable shoulder strap, exchangeable top handle and concealed backside compartment. The flap opens with ease by its round tab, which adds a more geometric touch to its design.


  • Description

    Similar to its sibling, the structured body is made from slate black textured leather, that transitions into smooth nappa at the sides, with a coloured accent in-between that outlines the overall contour of the bag.

    The main compartment and flap is lined with coloured leather, and features a small card pocket. Thanks to the tapered design of the bag, it’s remarkably spacious, too. In addition, there is a somewhat hidden leather-lined pocket that sits between the flap and the backside of the bag, offering some extra space.

    A short strap on each side allows effortless adjustment of the overall shoulder strap length using a set of double-ended studs for maximum stability. Any excess length is neatly confined to the interior of the bag, to preserve the overall clean aesthetic.

    The long shoulder/cross-body strap, expertly crafted with hand-stitched ends, sits comfortably on your shoulder. For a different look, you can fit the provided top handle to carry it in your hand or on your arm. The slightly upholstered handle can be easily exchanged by means of the carabiner-style rings, and it is adjustable using the side straps as well.

The Collection

Taking queues from contemporary art and jewelry design, the keen observer will appreciate the many different layers that blend together in this first collection.

A realm of contrasts, in perfect balance. Slate black, both richly textured and satin smooth. A distinctive contour, marked by a vivid dash of colour and abundant interior. Its lines, both straight and curved, transform into a teardrop-shape that exudes confidence, as it manifests itself firmly, yet elegantly.

Created by the best artisans and crafted from select materials, Odisea is a true companion on life’s journey. The level of care and detail that went into the creation of this collection will not cease to delight you, as it will stand the test of time in both aesthetics as well as lasting quality.

A woman, confident and strong, doesn’t simply wander through it. Firmly grounded, she’ll take the path less travelled if need be, not following the herd as she moves towards her goals and dreams.

She’ll define herself by her own actions, not by what others say, let alone by a brand name scribed over her wardrobe. Like a crafts(wo)man, shaping her life as she sees fit.

The Journey

The Odisea collection did not exactly earn its name by accident. As with any odyssey - after the ancient Greek epic by Homer, a long wandering or voyage usually marked by many changes of fortune / an intellectual or spiritual wandering or quest - it’s been a true journey in every sense of the word.

In order to achieve the high standards we set out from the beginning, many paths were travelled. There are no shortcuts.

And just as Odysseus returned home wiser and stronger, it has shaped ensomono profoundly on many levels. Not simply judged by its tangible outcome, but given the valuable experience it provided along the way: the fundamentals of tomorrow.

Value, not wealth or fame, is the true measure of every craftsman. This is a simple rule we follow in anything we set out to do. Skills are a craftsman’s credentials. It’s what you can do, not what you say or who you know.

So despite the words written here, to us, there’s only one way of rightly expressing ourselves: through the design and craft itself. A never ending process of relentless dedication.

Enso / Mono

Enso, the circle, symbolizes unity, enlightenment, strength and elegance in all it’s purity and simplicity. It reflects the Japanese aesthetic and Zen-philosophy, usually represented by a calligraphic expression of the moment when the spirit and body is set free to create.

The term mono, also found in the Japanese language, could simply be translated as „thing, object”. However, it not merely encompasses what we can physically touch, but covers everything that we can grasp with our senses and our mind - the primary domain of both designer and craftsman.

Objects

The collection of objects we first presented around 2014 is characterized by their pure forms, exquisite materials, refined design and outstanding craftsmanship. Since then, we’ve evolved towards the design and create bags and accessories, and use leather as our primary material.

With each piece, the natural beauty of the selected materials and contrasting textures is brought to life in the hands of skilled craftsmen. The result is a coherent ensemble of objects and products that blends authentic values and new insights together in various interesting ways.
