About me

My basic work since 1992 is to design and make leather accessories, mostly bags.

I spent 12 years in Tallinn leather factory as bag designer and prototypes maker.

Since  1993 I also made leather bags in my own atelier and sold them in galleries of applied art.

In my works I try to find harmony in factures, tones, lines and styles.

Some of them can be similar, but never the same. I use cow, sheep, goat  leather and if the composition needs,

I dye material for details myself.

I  work  now  in Finland , in the  fantastic Fiskars village and my atelier is in a former office room in an old factory.

In my gallery here  is a small selection of my work done. Since  2007  in my  bags is a serial number.

If you want to oder a personalised handbag please contact  me and describe your wishes.

You can find my products  in my workshop in Fiskars, Peltorivi 5-7, 2.floor; Onoma-shop in Fiskars,  in Salon Turkisateljee, Länsiranta 8;
