TSATSAS means clarity and quality. With regard to design, the materials used, and the way they are treated. A particular approach to luxury is something immediately noticeable, something that can be felt straight away. These bags and accessories take time – to design, to manufacture and to develop.

All the models in the TSATSAS range are elegant and boast a cutting-edge, contemporary design. What they are not is modish in the sense of a passing fad. In the design process nothing is left to chance, the focus of the designs at all times being on achieving a perfect balance between function, aesthetics and execution.

TSATSAS bags and accessories are handcrafted in Germany with the greatest care and precision. All the designs lend scope to the beauty and purity of leather as a material. Cut, design and proportions come together to create the clarity and simplicity of the product in question. It is the way that attention is being paid to the fundamentals that forms the sophistication of the products.

The TSATSAS bag label was established in 2012 by Esther and Dimitrios Tsatsas in Frankfurt/Main. Hand-working leather is a longstanding tradition in the family; Dimitrios Tsatsas’ father has for over 40 years run a refined bag making studio in Offenbach/Main. And it is there that ever since the label’s foundation all TSATSAS bags and accessories have been lovingly crafted by hand with great skill and dexterity – down to the very last detail.

Closely exploring the worlds of design, fashion and art, industrial designer Dimitrios Tsatsas and his wife Esther, who studied architecture, have developed a sure feel for the design vocabulary of today.

The collection of handcrafted leather bags and accessories has grown steadily since 2012 and stands out for designs that bid farewell to the conventional routes in fashion design and free themselves of all aesthetic restrictions. Indeed, the designs are testimony both to the duo’s sensitive approach to the interplay of shapes and materials and to their eye for the finest of details. By founding the TSATSAS label and choosing to meld craftsmanship and design they have to great acclaim returned to their family roots.
