Our bags are a unique balance of understated yet beautiful Danish form, with hues and textures drawn from the culture and landscape of the Ivory Coast. Each bag is envisioned and designed in Denmark, and then brought to life in Italy with our trusted collaborators and essential partners: the artisans. We work with a family-owned factory, and have cultivated a close relationship with the owner himself – an innovative and experimental master of his art, with an acute attention to detail, refined throughout 28 years of experience.
Each Yvonne Koné bag is a labor of love, made in community for a perfected and personal result. A hundred skilled hands – patternmakers, benders, seamsters, tanners, hardware producers – come together to create a product of the finest untreated leathers and materials. The bags are either lined with 100% Italian cotton, or with a synthetic suede fabric, chosen for lightness and longevity. The hardware is also all made in Italy. Each individual bag is carefully inspected and approved by our friend, the owner and master artisan, before making its way into your hands.
