Amsterdam based Atelier Snekkerbuks, founded by Kristin Maurer.
Kristin started her Snekkerbuks journey when she wanted her 1-year-old daughter to be able to play freely in all weather conditions. She created Snekkerbuks; an all-leather pair of dungarees. These Snekkerbuks became a hit, and many kids wear these ‘pants to live’ in. From that moment Atelier Snekkerbuks continued making timeless, durable, leather products for everyday use.
Each backpack is handcrafted in Atelier Snekkerbuks in Amsterdam.
The buckles and leather fastening straps are remodeled leather skate ties (Dutch: “schaatsriem voor Friese doorloper”). These parts were once produced in large quantities from high-quality natural leather in the ice skating nation Holland. The enormous unused leftovers of the factories are now waste products, as only plastic is used for skates. They get a second life in the Snekkerbuks backpacks.
Clean with a damp cloth, if necessary. Don’t use detergents or soaps.
