Elenbaas Atelier works with leather suppliers from the province of North Brabant, in the south of The Netherlands. These suppliers exclusively trade in batches of over-produced leather that remains from large-scale manufacturers. The leather species are carefully selected by terms of quality, flexibility and colour.

Our hardware comes from suppliers who are experts in high quality brass hardware.


Leather cutting starts with custom-made solid molds. The molds are helpful to cut the leather very precisely.

Sewing is done in two different ways. By use of an industrial leather machine and by hand: according to the traditional saddle stitch technique.

Edge Paint  

The finishing of the leather edges is done entirely by hand, by use of edge paint. In order to get the finest end result the painting process requires preciseness, several layers of paint and thorough sanding.
