Our Story

Studio Cosima is an Amsterdam based leather goods 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.

Our collection is sold exclusively through our webshop 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.

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.

We work together with a traditional manufacturer based in the South of Spain where the products are handmade by highly skilled artisans. 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.
