TSATSAS – means clarity and quality in the design, the materials used and in the way they are treated. The bags from the studio in Frankfurt / Main take time – to design, to manufacture and to develop.
The bag label TSATSAS was founded in 2012 by Esther Schulze-Tsatsas and Dimitrios Tsatsas who come from a family with a long tradition of working with leather. Dimitrios Tsatsas’s father has been running an atelier producing fine leather goods in Offenbach am Main for more than thirty years.
Although very much influenced by the traditional way of working, Dimitrios Tsatsas soon came to find the repertoire in classical craftwork too limited. He studied industrial design and subsequently worked as a creative director in the field of design for ten years. Esther Schulze-Tsatsas studied architecture and, for a long time, was responsible for producing and implementing concepts for major design events.
Through an intensive analysis of design, fashion and art, Esther Schulze-Tsatsas and Dimitrios Tsatsas have developed a real feel for the design vocabulary of the current times. Their designs evidence both their sensitivity to the interaction between shape and material and their eye for detail. With the establishment of the label TSATSAS and the decision to combine craftsmanship and design, the two have returned to their family roots.
