About us

Behind the sustainable Danish accessory brand is founder and designer Camilla Askou Hvingelby. Coming from a background as Master in Business Administration, she missed being creative. Therefore she spent her first paycheck on an industrial leather sewing machine and she quickly fell in love with the amazing machinery.

Every first drawing and stitch is made by Camilla in her office located in Vejle. Right from the idea stage to the process of making patterns and prototypes, and onwards to the careful selection of leather and hardware. Further samples are developed and produced with the help of skilled craftsmen in Turkey. A collaboration that makes us proud.

Our vision

At KONTAINER COPENHAGEN we simply love bags. Not just bags but quality bags designed with functional details and focus on sustainability. This is our starting point every time new designs are created.

We believe in slow fashion and wish to minimize overconsumption. Instead we create timeless classics that are long lasting and can fit your wardrobe season after season. We create new designs when we feel inspired and not because fashion dictates.
