ITIYA is a studio and a store founded in 2006 by Pauline and Nganzo. They are both partners in life and work. They have an design background and started with making and selling bags and accessories on creative markets. When they found this nice place in the Servetstraat in Utrecht, under the Dom Tower, they decided to open a store.
Pauline: We love bags, but we also care for our planet. That's why the brands that we choose produce with respect for people (fairtrade) and nature. We have bags & accessories made of vegetable tanned leather, recycled leather, vegan leather or recycled materials as fire hose and banners.
Pauline and Nganzo still make a part of the collection in their studio in Utrecht. These bags and cases are made from recycled leather from old sofa's ans chairs. Made with love and one-of-a-kind.
