Our Story

Studio Cosima is an Amsterdam based accessory label that creates timeless pieces for everyday living that are made to last. Inspired by the transcendence of materials and craftsmanship, the products are minimalistic classic items made from vegetable tanned leather and pure silk.

Our collection is made in limited quantities and available exclusively through our online shop without middlemen or retail margins. This allows us to stay true to our high quality standards while we can still offer you our products at an honest price.

 

Handmade in Europe

Our leather manufacturer is located in the beautiful hills of Andalusia, Spain. The company has been working for luxury fashion brands since 1960. It is a small workshop where Pepe leads a team of highly skilled artisans. Each person has his or her own skills and step in the process of the production. They take great pride in their craft, which is noticeable in tall details of the products.

 

 

The products will be made in small editions to prevent overstock and overproduction. As a result all our products can be seen as Limited Editions. We will gradually add new products and remake current products in new materials and color ways.

 

 

Studio Cosima

Studio Cosima was founded by Larissa M Smits in 2015. Working with leather is a lasting family tradition. Her father had an atelier for luxury handbags in the South of the Netherlands, where she grew up. While living and working in NYC for a year she made a collection of bags in a small atelier in the Garment District, which were sold in the concept store This is Story in Chelsea during their Christmas concept. This is when the idea of starting her own accessory brand came to life. Together with her father from whom she learned the craft, they then started developing the first prototypes.
