Mike Rijsenbrij has a passion for the craft of styling, design, modelling and trendwatching. With his creative spirit and an atelier in ‘De Hallen’, the creative heart of Amsterdam, he started to make his dream come true. After two years of research, development and improvement he proudly presented his first work and travel bag collection in late 2018.


Responsible Bags

He truly believes that the production of beautiful leather ware should go hand in hand with an upright attention for sustainability. For his bags he only uses European leather processed in Italy under strict environmental and quality requirements of the European Union. In the spirit of creative craftmanship his bags are handmade by the passionate artists of a family business in Portugal. Using durable trimmings and components he's made long lasting bags. Together with you, he can reduce the fingerprint we leave on our environment by producing on al small-scale near home and use sustainable materials. Your bag is made with love and care.


Your Bag

The journey of your VANRYS® bag began with the designing in Amsterdam. Starting point was his shared love for beautiful leather items. The design of his collection was further navigated by the carefully chosen ‘modestly chic’ colours of the leather, the practical interiors with a herringbone lining and the durable finishing with quality components as the Excella zippers and solid metal trimmings. Depending on the model of your bag you’ll find at least one inside pocket or pouch integrated in the design. All bags are handcrafted in Portugal. Your bag is ready to continue its journey alongside you on your next adventures. Where shall we go?
