Vill Okse is a family business based Kolkata, India that discovered a passion for leather bags. Since 2016 we enthusiastically develop and create new designs, improve the old and combine tradition and zeitgeist – always with the aim to make you happy.
The beautiful is made by those who create with heart. From the small bracelet up to the large suitcase, each of our products is handmade and unique. Each product has its own distinctive name, the different bags families cross-generationally offer a companion for life.
With use they gain their individual character and tell stories of everyday life, of friends, journeys and their quirky kinfolk. When you choose a Vill Okse style, you become part of the family. You don’t go for every trend, have a high sense of values and a soft spot for individual, unconventional style.
“I love traces of use and objects which can tell stories. Contrasts and contradictions make life interesting.“ – Fahad Hasan, creative hand and discoverer.
Production and Craftsmanship:
Our leathers are free of CFC, PCB, PCP, formaldehyde and are dyed with colours that comply with the AZO and other European regulations. The major part of the leathers we use is being pre-tanned with trivalent chromium salts, which are harmless to health, during the first tanning stage. With the re-tanning the chrome content is being extracted out of the leather to a high percentage again and replaced by vegetal tanning agents, like e.g. bark.
Chrome tanning enables the production of especially soft leathers and increases the durability. Only by means of extreme heat or mistakes during the tanning trivalent chromium compounds might turn to the unhealthy chromium VI. Combining the chrome tanning with the vegetal tanning reduces the possibility of chromium VI creation immensely. For guaranteeing our leather to be free from hazardous substances they are regularly controlled by globally recognised laboratories.
