About us

Holssen stemmed from a shared vision and passion between two friends. Mathieu, the visionary and Sebastien, the artiste, initiated a concept to fill a void in the leather goods industry. Holssen crafts bags for the functional world, with high quality leather that can withstand the test of time - all embracing the act of affordability.

In today's world, most items are expendable. We set out, in our design studio in Oslo, to bring back high-quality, sturdy leather bags reminiscent to those our grandparents may once have had but adapted to the needs of the modern world. A bag crafted from the best material that could accompany us through our life’s journeys. Leather, in its raw form, gets softer and more beautiful as time goes on. These are items that improve as we do.

We hope you enjoy using Holssen items as much as we do creating them.
