Keecie design studio
A real Keecie stands out from the crowd. A functional design with a vintage touch. The surprising print on the inside.
The craftsmanship: everything handmade from the best quality Italian leather, which only gets more beautiful with age.
With her background in product design and her passion for vintage design, Klaartje de Hartog is the driving force behind Keecie. She has an stunning colour sense and eye for detail. What’s more: her designs are not only beautiful, they are also practical.
They are suitable for everyday use, carrying everything you need. And they last for years.
The big surprise of each Keecie item can be found on the inside: open your bag or wallet and discover the playful silkscreen print on the inside. Our prints are often inspired by flowers and animals, and chosen to fit the shape and function of the design. Take the elephant on the inside of Elephant Joke, which represents the spacious size of the bag: big enough to take anywhere, but compact enough to not lose overview of what’s inside. All bags and wallets from Keecie have their own print, which is screen-printed with sustainable water-based paint in our sewing studio in Poland.
Sewing studio in Poland
Our collection is manufactured by a small sewing studio in Poland. Visiting them is always a pleasure and is accompanied by the most delicious tea. More importantly though, they are experts in producing handmade leather products and have been our creative partner for many years, thinking with us about questions like: Which leather do we use for which design? How do you create volume in a bag? Which stitching method produces the best quality?
