Felt and leather in perfect synergy
Our philosophy is based on reusing and crafting. It all began with elements, directly reused from old suitcases and other accessories.
Philosophy that still lives in our products and mind. BORN Atelier products are now made from two key materials; felt & leather.
Each of them is produced and selected by our own researches and knowledge which was passed on to us by our ancestors.
All products are exclusively made from recycled & leftover materials. Each product is manufactured by hand with attention to every last detail in our studio near Ljubljana, Slovenia, Europe.

One of the key materials of our bags is felt.
We use only felt which is made from recycled plastic bottles. This felt has also excellent features such as extreme durability, it is stiff, does not stretch and is 4mm thick which provides perfect protection for electronic devices.

Our philosophy is based on reusing and not producing. We collect high-quality leftovers from wasteful industries. With this, we help the environment and ensure a limited edition of each leather. Information next to each bag shows you how many pieces were made from selected leather.

Our own developed design features.
One of our features of the bags is a special »bag in a bag« or removable pocket which you can use as an inside pocket or easily unpin it from the bag and use it as a small independent handbag. It has 3 compartments where you can put your tablets, notebooks, pens, keys, wallet, etc. When you do not need it anymore as an independent handbag you just zip it inside again and you have an inside p. Simple and slick.
For more pleasant carrying of our bags, we decided that we will use an old handmade technique for our BORN Atelier strap. Our straps are made from 4 layers; (1) upper layer of leather which is wider and folded by hand over the middle core which contains (2) hard layer made from special mixed leather which gives straps the form, (3) reinforcement tape which enables our straps that cannot stretch, and the last is the (4) back layer of leather. A long process for the best comfort.
Mind that is socially responsible
All BORN Atelier products are packed in a special handcrafted box made by the Association of People with Disabilities.
