Felt bag NORDHALE

NORDIC

cold breezes, silence, endless forests and Iceland’s dramatic landscape of black lava – NORDHALE is inspired by nordic beauty and pureness.

therefore NORDHALE’s bags are named after cities and villages in Northern Europe, which all have a story to tell…

for example HENNES is a small village in Norway in the northernmost part of the Nordland county. as imagined, it really is a breathtaking nordic „land“. Hennes inspires with its nature and landscape – cold weather, crystal clear waters and little houses surrounded by grey rocky mountains with snowy peaks. it’s a tiny village with strong characteristics.

the city of LUND tells a story of life and people through centuries in a nordic country. it’s mentioned as the oldest city of Sweden. its medieval streets are full of history as Lund was presumably already existing by the end of the Viking Era. it’s rich of landmarks that will always remember the different eras the versatile city has seen.

the BODEM bag is inspired by the small city in Sweden called Boden. The city is situated in the northernmost county of Sweden – Norrbotten. the area shows the diversity of nordic nature – a contrast between winter darkness and midnight sun, forests and high mountains. Boden is a small yet awe-inspiring city with forts blasted into grey mountains between its green forests.

“5 Easy Ways to a Minimalist Bag”

MINIMALISM – quiet yet powerful

minimalism in fashion has been around for decades. minimalism first emerged in visual arts during the 1960s in New York when a group of artists including Donald Judd, John McCracken, Agnes Martin and many others, rejected the traditional representation in painting and sculptures and chose to pursue the new lifestyle – own as little as possible to the physical existence.

 

What are the Benefits of Minimalism?

in NORDHALE we believe that minimalism is a tool for living as our head-designer Sinika Seepõld says: “minimalism is a tool that helps you get rid of the unnecessary and focus on what’s important – that’s how I find my energy, time, happiness and freedom.”

 

having a minimalist bag can be a good start for changing your way of thinking and entering the minimalist lifestyle. so these are our 5 easy ways to achieve a more minimalist bag:

 

  • learn how to say “no” with this thinking and distinguish between essential and unnecessary.
  • plan and think through your day – don’t prepare the bag for the “what if” scenarios
  • organize the bag – use card holders, small pouches, etc to make finding things easier
  • don’t use the bag as a trash can – the more you treasure your bag, the more it will retain its’ value
  • clean the bag from the unnecessary at least once a week

 

Monochrome

NORDHALE’s colors are the shades of grey and black – „thunder“ and „mist“ as we like to call them – rough, unexpected, yet somehow calming as the nordic sky.

the subtle elegance of these monochromatic colors passes you effortlessly between seasons – simplicity is the key to versatile.

SLOW FASHION

slow fashion is celebrating and loving the FEW things you own. NORDHALE puts emphasis on creating pieces you’ll reach for again and again.
in fashion there are tremendous amounts of oddly shaped pieces of fabric leftovers thrown away each year, as stated in the Pulse of the Fashion Industry report. slow fashion is embracing sustainable approach – in NORDHALE, these oddly shaped pieces become something that is here to stay.
slow fashion is about building a core wardrobe where every piece is carried by the quality and timeless design – NORDHALE stands for both of these characteristics.

 

 

The beginning of NORDHALE

Nordhale founder and head-designer Sinika Seepõld was born in Tallinn, Estonia. She is a multi-talented designer, who discovered her love for fashion and design while studying and traveling the world. Back then she launched her experimental brand miDeer in 2014. She started to create interior elements and accessories for kids. From the beginning, she started using unique techniques and solid choice of materials which instantly formed her vision and helped the brand to develop even further.

2016 Sinika found a completely new approach by using the industrial felt and started to design ready-to-wear bags. At this moment Nordhale was born. Sinika finds inspiration for the emergence of consciousness in the environment. personally she believes that people are not well aware with over-consumption and the lack of awareness behind the fashion industry. Nordhale is committed to developing sustainable production and consumption patterns.

Sinika herself describes the design process: “ we use the excess pieces from a felt factory, in order to reduce the amount of industrial material that ends up in the environment. every piece of Nordhale’s collection is handmade, we value collaborating with local artisans and we like to embrace the tiny quirks of every single item. the simple and timeless design of Nordhale’s bags are for those who appreciate sustainable fashion and have the confidence to stand out from the ordinary.”

The Head Designer of Nordhale sees the brand as a lifestyle and family that combines like-minded people.

STORY BEHIND THE BAG

The Nordhale brand was born in 2016 and has expanded its market rapidly throughout the years in both the Baltic States and the world with over 20 retail partners. Nordhale is a unique Estonian design brand that produces laptop sleeves, briefcases, carrier bags and backpacks from industriual felt.

Since day one, Nordhale is dedicated to sustainable production and consumption patterns. In design, Nordhale utilizes recyclable felt from factories, which reduces the reach of industrial materials to nature.

Every piece of Nordhale collection is hand-made in collaboration with various handicraft experts. Thanks to this, every bag has a rare value and story. Nordhale bags are for those who appreciate slow living and have the confidence to stand out from the ordinary

For the first time, we have the opportunity to peep behind closed curtains and see what Nordhale’s workflows are when designing bags.
