About

Hi! We are DIZAIND, a Swiss fashion brand that has spent the past five years making sustainable, bespoke, and high-quality bags in the heart of Italy. We enable our customers to express their personalities through our bags and accessories, which are all fully customizable through our online 3D design tool. We firmly believe that fashion should be sustainable, ethical, and unique, and we are proud to say that this year, we won the Best Bespoke Handbags Brand Award in Europe.

We have always wanted to create sustainable alternatives to leather. Unfortunately, many of these alternatives, such as polyurethane, are often petroleum-based, which are harmful to the environment. However, we have finally found an innovative material: Vegan leather, made from recycled plastic (PET bottles). It looks gorgeous, it's soft and durable, and it fits our products perfectly.

We now want to launch our fully customizable bags and first accessory collection made from this beautiful vegan leather. This launch is dedicated to fighting the climate crisis and empowering all those who purchase our vegan products, as it allows them to be part of the fight. For each vegan item sold, we will plant one tree. We will plant these trees in collaboration with the Trillion Tree Campaign.

DIZAIND’s vegan leather bag collection is designed for strong, independent women who care about the planet but who also love to play with fashion and style. These bags are for the women who understand how their choices affect the world and who prefer handmade, personal luxuries over mass-produced goods.

DIZAIND’s unisex accessory line is for all those who love sustainable, ethically made, and stylish products. The accessories will be available for customization in ten different colors, and they can be personalized with names and initials.


The customization process is very simple and fun. You choose your favorite bag from our collection of twenty-one bags and start designing! You can choose your bag as well as its color, interior, metal hardware, and even your monogram. The accessories can be customized by filling out the e-form on our website with your color preferences.

To make sure everyone can design a vegan leather bag in their favorite colors, we will launch ten beautiful colors on our digital design tool. The colors can be combined to create the most modern and sophisticated designs. 

For the interiors of our vegan bags, we intend to offer beautiful and decadent microsuede that is available in twelve colors.

For the metal parts and zippers of our bags and accessories, we will offer a choice of mirror silver or light gold. For the monograms, we will offer a choice of silver, light gold, or colorless. 

Our vegan leather is made by an Italian manufacturer who focuses on producing high quality, eco-friendly, cruelty-free products for the fashion industry. The vegan leather is made from recycled PET bottles. It is OEKO TEX certified and BUREAU VERITAS tested. By using this innovative leather, we combat CO2 emissions, support the recycling industry, and help keep our oceans clean and our landfills manageable.

This leather not only looks gorgeous - it is also free of all those harmful chemicals that are so often used in the textile industry. And one more thing, it is water-resistant.

For our beautiful microsuede materials in the interior of our bags, we use the same Italian manufacturer. The metal parts of the bags and the zippers are also sourced from Italian suppliers. Our packaging and shipping boxes are FSC certified and are sourced from responsibly managed forests and recycled materials. Our cotton dust bags meet organic textile standards.

Our material suppliers are located in Lombardy, Italy. This helps us reduce our CO2 footprint. Our suppliers also sell materials in small batches, meaning that we avoid costly and unsustainable pre-production.

All DIZAIND’s bags and accessories are handcrafted by an independent atelier based in Bergamo, Italy. The atelier is run by a master artisan, Francesca, who has over three decades’ experience in making leather bags and accessories. Francesca is passionate about her work and respects the materials she works with, as well as the environment. Francesca and the rest of her team are based in her atelier, where you can smell the scent of delicious Italian coffee and pat the neighbourhood cat who often comes for a visit.





 For every DIZAIND item sold, we will plant one tree. We will plant these trees in collaboration with the Trillion Tree Campaign, which has already planted 13.6 billion trees. We have decided to plant trees because we feel that it is the most effective way of tackling the climate crisis.

The funds from this campaign will allow us to launch a fully customizable vegan leather bag and accessories collection. We will also be able to fulfil the orders we receive from our backers.

  • The bulk of the budget will go toward redeveloping our 3D design tool. This is the most sophisticated aspect of our virtual design studio and will be used to customize and personalize our vegan leather bags.
  • We will need to secure vegan leather, lining materials, metal accessories, and packaging from our suppliers to fulfill the first orders from this campaign.
  • Every bag and accessory will be handcrafted by the artisan. We ensure fair pay for our artisans, and this is more than just the right thing to do - it is also crucial to our business ethos. When artisans create uniquely crafted art that they are well paid for, then the world is on the way toward becoming a more beautiful place.
  • We will pay our shipping providers to send you the products, and we will pay a commission fee to credit card companies. We will also pay Kickstarter to process the pledged amount.
  • In order to create awareness of this project via social media, we will also pay a fee for content development and advertising.

DIZAIND was founded in 2015 by Santare Slavinskas. It is based in Switzerland and Italy and is managed by a determined, creative, and fun team.

We started DIZAIND because we did not like how the fashion industry operated. It is led by the uniformity of seasonal trends, mass-produced goods, overpriced luxuries, and poor labor conditions. It is responsible for a lot of the world’s waste and carbon emissions.

Therefore at DIZAIND, we make customized bags and accessories that promote the uniqueness of individual identities. Our items are of high quality, so they last for a long time. We foster the craft traditions of artisans, and we make our products sustainable for both people and the planet.

Risks and challenges

Every project can encounter risks of being delayed. However, based on our experience we are confident that we will deliver our orders on time.

Over the past five years, we have developed know-how on material, supply, and production processes. Our suppliers have the additional capacity to accommodate any incremental needs.

We cannot speed up the production process, as each item is handcrafted by the artisan and requires patience, skill, and many hours to finish! However, if demand exceeds our capacity, we will contract additional artisans in the area with whom we have worked before.

As we are an e-commerce business, we have a network of shipping partners who will deliver our products to our customers in a safe and efficient manner.
