Ellen Van Eccelpoel is a Belgium-based graphic and interior designer.
Seven years ago she started her own accessory label flanel with a collection of scarves, silver jewelry and clothes made of silk and cashmere.
As her fascination and appreciation for details, materials and craftmanship grew, she decided to raise it up to a higher level.
She started to follow a course of maroquinerie, which soon resulted in the first collection of flanel leather bags.
Inspired by time and with the support of her teacher, her aim is to create a perfect accessory.
After designing a shape, she makes a pattern and chooses the perfect type of leather for each model. Every bag is unique, made by hand in her own Antwerp atelier.
I believe in making everything once, maybe twice if I really like it.
A flanel handbag is the finishing touch for a female and timeless silhouette.
