Meet Enya

meet the people

“Enya has a vivid imagination. Sometimes, it’s like she sees it all. And then she becomes quiet. Lets her backpack slip off her shoulders. Stands still… and sees even more.” After creating a laptop sleeve, she decicated a backpack to Enya. 

Enya loves discovering new things and places. She is fond of travelling, constantly moving around. She has lived in Ghent, Antwerp, Hamburg, Sri Lanka and Amsterdam. Enya almost literally lives out of her bag, which is always filled with stuff she might need at some point.

"I like the minimalistic look of my bag." She’s able to combine it with each and every outfit. “Sometimes, I like to put strange or bold clothes on and other days, I rather dress more modestly and toned down. Whatever the case, my backpack matches my clothing perfectly. I also love styles that look a bit though, which makes this bag the perfect companion.”

On a symbolic level, the backpack also represents Enya’s lifestyle. “It portrays adventure. After my studies, I bought a one-way ticket to Asia. Travelling is my way to experience new perspectives.” During her trip, she took part in a yoga course in Thailand and worked at a surf camp in Sri Lanka. “I used to focus on art and design, but I wanted to experience something totally different. My plan was to have no plan en just come upon new places. That’s why I love surfing so much: you’re in the water, waiting for a wave, not knowing when it’ll come. You have to stand still and live on the rhythm of nature.”

“It’s hard for me to decide what I’m going to do. At the moment I’m working for a fashion designer and an architectural firm. I also teach yoga and Pilates classes. It’s very busy, but I’m unable to give up one of my infatuations.”
