Hester van Eeghen (HVE) began her leather design company 22 years ago in Amsterdam. Since that time, van Eeaghen’s pieces have developed a cult-like following in Europe. Now her bags and other leather works are finally available in the United States.

HVEUS.com was recently launched featuring a new collection of signature edition bags. Like works of art, each piece features a signed and numbered calfskin tab.

van Eeghen’s creations are characterized by geometric shapes, unexpected color combinations and inventive functional systems. Her design principles – beauty, passion, shape, color, surprise and exceptional quality – are captured in every piece.

All her pieces are made of the finest grade Italian leathers, designed in Amsterdam and handcrafted in Italy.

van Eeghen studied literature at the University of Amsterdam and started working with leather after taking a general course. She initially began studying law, but followed her passion and moved into leatherwork.

Hester van Eeghen’s leather goods are for women and men with an uncompromising sense of style. Get them at HVEUS.com.

Here’s a look at the HVE pre-spring and spring collections.
