MATERIAL & CRAFT
TANCHEL works exclusively with a small family owned Factories that have a long history of craftsmanship and integrity. Our manufacturers share the typical ‘crafted by hand’ tradition of respecting the material and working with their hands. The environment in which our products are made is intimate, hands-on and personal.
We buy our skins from leather craftsmen who use old-fashioned methods to stretch, prepare and treat the leather to give it a beautiful texture and supple feel. The skins are sewn by expert leather seamstresses whose great skill and attention to detail ensure that the product is perfectly put together. Each carefully minded detail makes for a perfect whole.
Our solid brass & zinc alloy metal parts are crafted by a manufacturers in Italy that has a deep knowledge of the material. Stainless steel locks we import from our trusted manufacturer in Asia. We take extra care to use only the best materials, and we search high and low to find them at the best rates possible without sacrificing quality or design.
“LITTLE GIRL WITH DREAMS BECOME WOMAN WITH VISION”
My passion for creativity, especially fashion, started at a very young age. Even being a teenager I was already designing and making clothing and accessories for myself and my friends in my cozy white room.
Soon after I graduated from university, I started working in fashion, but my true love affair with leather started when I was working for Yves Saint Laurent. I was given the first-hand access to see how their meticulous leather goods were made. I was fascinated with the care for every single piece they produce, and most importantly – I discovered my love for leather. It felt like no other material, looking gorgeous old and new, worn and uncut, soulful and exclusive, with a raw beauty as nature intended it.
This fascination turned into passion.
In 2011, my passion for adventure led me to Bali, Indonesia. One month stay became a one year journey in this magical creative sanctuary. There’s an artistic spirit that lives in Bali’s electric green rice paddies – and island’s warm ocean gives it pure energy. The island was my root of inspirations, the foundation of my love for exotic leathers, the tropical mood, and my passion to discover, travel, and have deeper connection with people I met along the way. Lying in the white Bali’s beach with the „Alchemist“ in my hands, I had an epiphany – I need to follow my dreams, and my dream was creating my own designs from leather – ones I can touch, wear and share.
In 2012, I came back to my hometown and a year after TANCHEL was born – in the same cozy white room that was full of dreams of my teenage self.
And then the adventure began.
Even though I had 15 years experience in Fashion industry working for Luxury & Fast Fashion brands, I had no experience working with leather. I made lots of mistakes along the way, with the vision to create the highest quality product and an equally excellent buying experience. I based every decision on what I felt was right, working endless long days, late nights 24/7, sketched hundreds of products designs and made hundreds of product samples.
It has been one of the most difficult things I have ever done, but absolutely the most rewarding and exhilarating. So much care, attention and love has been invested into every product I offer. All my family members, my friends and even clients were invested in building TANCHEL.
