Discipline: Dutch design bags

Owner and designer Linde Van der Poel (1979) graduated from the ArtEZ art school in Enschede The Netherlands in 2002. A few years later she set up her own design studio on the beautiful island Bali. From the very start, recycled materials and consciousness for the environment have played a major role in her designs. Meticulously crafted and detailed, her complex and creative designs take their forms from nature.

Van der Poel's source of inspiration lies in the wilderness of Bali, particularly in the shapes of leaves and flowers found there. Together with her team, consisting of local artisans, she designs and produces high quality and exclusive leather handbags.

Her best-known bag is the Tulip by-Lin©, this bag is inspired by van der Poels roots The Netherlands, famous of its tulips and has been in the collection since 2005. By-Lin's designs are surprising and of a very high quality. The Tulip on display is greatly appreciated for its exceptional form and craftsmanship. This combination makes by-Lin's bags very popular among a large audience. By-Lin® feels privileged that their bags are also available in some of the most prestigious museum shops in Amsterdam and surroundings such as the Van Gogh Museum, the Hendrikje Museum of Bags and Purses and at the Zaanse Schans

All bags are inspired by nature, handmade and made of natural products such as high quality leather.
