ABOUT VEG TANNED LEATHER
The processing of animal hides into leather is called tanning. Veg tan is one of the oldest methods of tanning known to man. Vegetable tanning remains the closest to the condition of nature and the most respectful of ecology. One of the main characteristics of these hides is that they acquire more and more character with use. The leather changes color slightly and acquiring a unique appearance. The products are transforming into real ones reliable, unique and long-lasting companions, who remind us of adventures.

ABOUT ROSANNE BERGSMA-JAGERSMA
Rosanne Bergsma’s passion for shoes and craftsmanship started in the second year of the product design study at the academy of arts in Arnhem (ArtEZ). In 2009 she finished the study cum laude. After her study she decided to enhance her craft skills. And continued her job at an orthopedic shoemaker while starting her own Atelier. In 2015 Rosanne and David got their first son Benjamin followed by son Eden in 2018. They believe in raising children with the freedom to explore and pursue the things that uniquely light them up, while supporting their journey and allowing them to lead the way. As a mother she more and more awakened to the beauty of minimalism, natural and organic materials, and eco-friendly living. She wanted to create timeless pieces that were practical, made with non-toxic fabrics and made in an environmentally and socially conscious way. The collection is a minimalist line of nature-inspired, ethical, organic, and high-comfort products that are easy to wear, so they can support us wherever we go. All made by Atelier Rosanne Bergsma in Arnhem.
