About Me

Hello, I’m Vanessa Kirsch, but everyone calls me just Van. I design and make 100% handmade handbags for everyday use. I’m also passionate about webdesign, good graphics design in general, nature, photography as well as I am a passionate progressive rock & metal lover.

The 90% of my spare time, you can find me listening to music while sketching, designing, handcrafting something for my home, relatives & friends, or surfing in my creative mind. The 10% left I’d be sleeping ;-)
