At SOFFA, we love new ideas and new collections, especially those that are slightly different and escape the mainstream. We admire the designer groups that cooperate with others on individual projects to create a completely new style. For example, a limited edition of bags from TSATSAS, called SO_FAR, embodies a unique style that stands out among other bag collections.
The bag label TSATSAS was founded in 2012 by Esther Schulze-Tsatsas and Dimities Tsatsas in Frankfurt/Main. All the TSATSAS bags and accessories are handmade, using only high quality materials. The TSATSAS label is expanding and entering into an extraordinary union with textiles. The result of this relationship is five limited editions of the Tote Bag, FLUKE, each made from a combination of cowhide and fabrics from a Danish textile company, Kvadrat’s Raf Simons collection. Esther Schulze-Tsatsas and Dimities Tsatsas, the designers of TSATSAS, said “When we got the chance as the first bag label worldwide to work exclusively with the fabrics of the Kvadrat/Raf Simons collection, our focus was on transferring the contrast between textiles and leather into a new aesthetic”. SO_FAR represents a new approach in the fashion industry, and the fabulous designer duo perceive the collection as a separate edition to their already distinct bag label.
