Our all-time-classic, very fine, granny-shaped box-bag. ‚Die Sitte‘ is made of extra fine but not to boring selected belly piece Crocodylus porosus-crocodile-leather and was inspired by the 1940s appeal. Grip the alluringly sharp texture of the crocodile-leather. Let your hands be enclosed by the finest cow leather on the inside. No more words, no more imagination needed: It’s a sensual thing. You will feel what we mean. The Sitte bag is the most exclusive piece to ever leave the ESDE atelier. Yet it is just as functional as it is timelessly eye-catching: the matching, adjustable one-piece strap and a richly padded handle turn the bag into a lifelong companion.

Our bags are made of 100% german vegetal tanned cow leather so its worthy of love and care.
Leather is a natural product which never stop working. The more you wear a bag the more it becomes a part of you and your lifestyle.
This is why you should obey some rules of care we created for your ESDE bag to last for life.
Try to keep it from high humidity, liquids like cream, make up, perfume or even water. Just in case you dab it with a dry, non coloured cotton cloth.
Slight scratches can be removed by a light massage with a cotton cloth or just with your finger tips.
Keep your bag in the provided dustbag, do not expose it to the direct sun.
3. Working leather
What kind of bag typ are you? Leather is always working. If you carry heavy things in your bag over and over again your bag will adjust to this weight and size.
Every step producing an ESDE bag contents love and passion.
The vegetabil tanned 100% cow leather always brings tonal variations, structure and marks. That is no sign of imperfection but shows the exact opposite – a handcrafted, with passion created unique product.
Every stitching, every detail is handmade in our Düsseldorf atelier – by a very limited, specially trained amount of hands. We collected our tools all over the world. They all are essential elements of our work routine: leather is a living material and needs to be treated accordingly. It is not static, but reacts to any outside influence and never stops evolving.
We reduce familiar forms to their essence, which we reinterpret and perfect for the highest demands. This results in a timeless design which draws its modernity from its eclecticism. Unpretentious, functional Couture products.
The result of our work is an indestructible, natural product that gets even more appealing, handy and interesting with age. Just like its owner, it never stops maturing. It grows closer to him, bears evidence to his experiences and becomes a part of his very own story.
We are devoted disciples of experience. Our attitude towards life expresses itself through every of our ESDE pieces: personal experience, genuine love for the interconnection of design and craftsmanship – and faith in a truly creative process which gives birth to something new.
A German Story
I incorporate my personal experiences and try to express the acquired clarity and directness through everything I do and produce. A childhood and adolescence in East Germany, the sometimes chaotic warmth of a large family, wild years in Berlin and, finally, the incorporation of an own little company in Düsseldorf are the main chapters of my story.
