NORDENSTUDIO was established in 2013 as a leather goods brand, with a capsule collection. However, due to several requests for customization of the collection and the design of unique bags, the brand became a studio. • Now the studio creates leather goods for it's own collection (that can be costumized), for "private labels" and for special clients with a passion for singular bags and who wishes to have a unique piece in the right kind of leather and color. All the leather goods are handcrafted in Portugal with the greatest care and precision. • Catarina Calçada is the founder and designer behind NORDENSTUDIO and NOEN. She has a background in Product and Graphic Design and is always looking for a type of natural and unsophisticated beauty in her designs. Her inspirations are people and their cultures, quality of materials, architecture and the raw simplicity of geometry and color.
"I love to design unique items for special clients. Not only for the pieces itself, but also because every costumer has its unique requests. That's what makes every item and its process challenging and exclusive."
"Design is not making beauty. Beauty emerges from selection, affinities, integration and love.”
