The bag is named after Lies: "My inspiration comes mainly from people, their energy, passion and stories. That's why I name my designs after real people. When I was working on the lies bag, I considered my own needs. The inspiration for the design originated while constructing the Ed bag, inspired by graphical shapes, a playful mix between triangles and squares"

MycaNova® is a product of Citribel, a Belgian company specialised in the production of citric acid. Just like animal leather, MycaNova® is elastic, sturdy, wear-resistant, scratch-resistant and tactile. But also rainproof and fully customisable in colour and texture. In every square meter of MycaNova®, 20 to 60 grams of plastic is replaced with mycelium. We are proud to be the first Belgian brand to launch a product made from this innovative Belgian biomaterial.

We use a minimum of zippers and metals to increase the longevity of your bag.

- Is energy-efficient
