Before Elza Wandler founded her own brand in 2017, she studied at the Amsterdam Fashion Institute and designed clothing for Levi’s. After a meeting with Bart Ramakers, who sells design brands with his agency Parror Agency, Wandler decided to design on her own and create exactly what she likes for her own brand.

Elza Wandler has raised its Wandler brand to an international level in two years. After the establishment of Wandler in 2017, the bags quickly became popular among international celebrities and Instagram influencers. Wandler is clear in function and form and stands out for its distinctive aesthetics: elegant with unexpected dimensions and a dynamic use of color. In 2019 Wandler launched its first collection of shoes.

The leather for her bags and shoes comes from an Italian supplier. For leather, standard colors are normally used, but the supplier of Wandler was willing to paint the leather in the colors that she wanted. This allows Wandler to distinguish itself in terms of color from most other bag brands.

Elza Wandler is a guest at the Amsterdam Museum of Bags

During the second Talent Talk on Sunday morning, October 13, Elza Wandler is a guest at the Museum of Bags Amsterdam; she then talks to journalist Bregje Lampe, guest curator Martien Mellema and Leonoor Ottink about her Wandler brand, which has grown into a worldwide success within a few years. Tickets are € 5.00 (excl. Entrance to Museum of Bags Amsterdam). A limited number of places are available.
