Every OSOND bag is a testament to timeless elegance and practicality, designed to make its owner feel comfortable and ready for any occasion. Each bag is as unique as its owner, available in a wide range of colors inspired by the vibrant surroundings of Portugal. But have you ever wondered about the journey of an OSOND bag, from the initial design to the final product? Let’s delve into the fascinating process behind the creation of our bags.
Designing for Elegance and Practicality
The journey of an OSOND bag begins with the design process. Each bag is designed with practicality and timeless elegance in mind. The goal is to create a bag that is not only stylish but also functional, ready to accompany its owner on any occasion. The wide range of colors available for our bags are inspired by the vibrant surroundings found in Portugal, adding a touch of uniqueness to each piece.
Selecting the Perfect Leather
The next step in the journey is the selection of high-grade bovine leather, sourced within Portugal. This leather is chosen for its quality and durability, but it also brings a unique character to each bag. Natural irregularities and color variations can occur in the leather, enhancing its appeal and making each bag truly one-of-a-kind. The inner lining of each bag is made from suede, the underside of the animal skin, which gives it a soft, fuzzy texture. With good care and consideration, an OSOND bag will stand the test of time.
Crafting with Precision and Care
Once the design is finalized and the leather selected, the crafting process begins. Each bag is cut manually, a technique that requires skill and precision. Our bags feature a signature whipstitch technique that creates a nice edge and prevents the fabric from unraveling. The only exception is the Viseu bag, which utilizes the traditional saddle stitch for its strength and durability. Various pieces like key chains, magnets, or zippers are added to enhance the aesthetics and functionality of OSOND bags, providing support and durability while adding style and elegance to the overall design
The Artisans Behind OSOND Bags
Our bags are designed and manufactured in the countryside of Portugal by artisans who have been creating and working with leather goods for decades. These artisans, combined with the vision of OSOND founder Antonia, have developed a line of timeless, understated boho-chic-inspired bags designed for everyday life.
Every OSOND bag sold with its signature brand mark has been quality tested throughout the entire production process and approved by the manufacturer. In addition to visual inspections, quality assurance testing is conducted to ensure each bag meets the required quality standards. This includes testing the bag for strength, durability, and water resistance. Finally, each bag is checked once again at the moment of packaging and shipping, ensuring that every OSOND bag you receive is of the highest quality.
