Atelier de l’Armée is a new company founded by Joost Doeswijk and Elza Wandler. Atelier de l’Armée brings a unique collection of handmade bags made from mainly military fabrics and deadstock leathers.
Out of our mutual love for durable materials, timeless design and the continuous search for beautiful items we created Atelier de l’Armée.
Our main goal is to create an inspiring environment that offers products that are well constructed, skillfully crafted and have great detailing. We are inspired by the functionality and durability of vintage workwear and military clothing. Since we care for the world we are always conscious of the environmental impact of our products. We can proudly say that 98% of our handcrafted bags and leather goods are build out of a zero waste philosophy.” Atelier de l’Armée
