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.


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.
