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 by Esther Schulze-Tsatsas and Dimitrios Tsatsas in 2012. Working with leather is a long-standing family tradition. Dimitrios Tsatsas’ father has been running an atelier producing fine leather goods in Offenbach am Main for more than 30 years.
Although very much influenced by this traditional way of working, Dimitrios Tsatsas soon came to find the repertoire in classical craftwork too limited. He studied Industrial Design and subsequently worked as a creative director in the field of design for ten years. Esther Schulze-Tsatsas studied Architecture and, for a long time, was responsible for producing and implementing the concepts for major design events.
Through an intensive analysis of design, fashion and art, Esther Schulze-Tsatsas and Dimitrios Tsatsas have developed a real feel for the design vocabulary of our times. Their designs evidence both their sensitivity to the interaction between shape and material and their eye for detail.
With the establishment of the TSATSAS label and the decision to combine craftwork with design, the two have returned to their family roots.
