by gitte was founded in 2010 by Gitte van Helvoirt. She designs and makes fashion and home accessories made of leather and felt. Everything is made by hand in her studio. Gitte work with ecological felt and vegetable tanned leather. Etuis, purse, wallets and bags are a small obsession for her; her own bag is full of it.
This is how the items from the collection come into being, to show off nicely, to offer protection and practical storage. Gitte wants its products to last longer than the fashion of the day, the subtle natural combination of leather and felt, clear form language and functionality, ensures that every product conveys a lasting simple luxury.
