Kjær & Schmeling was established in august 2010.

Kristine behind Kjaer & Schmeling originally trained as a nurse. But while working as a nurse, she has slowly developed Kjaer & Schmeling .
She is self-taught designer and craftsman, through persistence, hard work and various courses she has developed the concept of Kjær & Schmeling

Kjær & Schmelings philosophy is to create modern bags and accessories following distinctive trends in a refined form. The expression is sophisticated and elegant with a reflection of nostalgia and nordic minimalism. It graces feminine beauty and strong will and beholds the power of excellent craftsmanship.

Her inspiration is found in history and elements of nature all interpreted with Scandinavian minimalism.

Passionate about creating products that people can connect Kjær & Schmeling is committed to making things that our customers will treasure. KS’s use DK based manufacturers and suppliers wherever possible, doing my bit to keep craftsmanship alive.

Each product is carefully crafted by hand in delicate shapes and with a little variety in colors and patterns, wich all add up to an intimate and personal leather collection.

Materials:
As far as possible I always use genuine materials.
With regards to leather this means that marks, textures, and color differences in the finished product, that are due to the natural differences in skin texture in genuine skin.
To me this is a charming fact that makes each piece of jewelry or bag uniqie.

FURTHER FACTS ABOUT LEATHER.
Leather.
Our products are mainly made from naturally tanned double shoulder hides. This material is also known from saddles, belts, etc.
To insure a high standard, not only the craft skill is important, but also the choice of materials. The skins I use in my projects are all handpicked by me, and again please note, that all leather is individual. No two pieces are alike. Leather can contain small marks after insect bites, scars etc. or small color differences. To me the challenge really is to use these differences in texture to complement each product and to add to their uniqueness.
Those of our products that are dyed are all hand dyed. Therefore there can be color differences from product to product. This is something you as a customer have to consider, since it does not change with use.
All bags are sewn with natural linen thread.
Regarding: Buttons buckles and other fasteners, I cannot guarantee that there is no nickel in the fasteners, I label as silver.
