Our Story

Studio Cosima is an accessory label that offers Everyday Essentials for the modern woman, handmade in Europe, based in Amsterdam. Our mission is to offer affordable and timeless accessories that are consciously made without compromising on quality.


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 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 the 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 to our ongoing collection.



Founded by

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 in NYC for a year, where she interned at Collina Strada,  she made a collection of bags in a small atelier in the Garment District. This collection was sold in the concept store This is Story in Chelsea. This is when the idea of starting her own accessory brand came to life. Together with her father from whom she learned the craft, she then started developing the first prototypes.
