ITENTASCHEN is a brand of handbags made of recycled leather in Geneva, created by designer Mélanie ITEN in 2010.

90% of the bags are produced from leather of old couches, vests and other leather clothes, recovered through networks such as: Emmaüs and CSP, but also in the streets, through donations, etc…

Every piece of leather is cleaned and treated and then cut for the manufacture of the different models of ITENTASCHEN collections.
LICHORICE is the flagship model of the brand.
This model is designed as a unisex everyday bag. It’s adjustable; one can change its form by pulling on the lateral straps to make it smaller and more “crumpled”, thus changing its style and format.
