Do you want to be notified when CAMIEL VAN NOTEN × LIES MERTENS is back in stock?

CAMIEL is a unisex handbag and the result of an artistic collaboration between architect Camiel van Noten en Lies Mertens. There’s a contrast between the sleek black exterior and the unexpected soft pattern on the inside. This large shopper has a separate compartment for laptops and we created adjustable straps, so you have the choice to wear it as a shoulder bag or carry it in your hand.

Design features

- Separate padded compartment for a 15” laptop
- Inside groove to store cards & other small objects
- Extra front compartment for your phone or a notebook
- Adjustable straps: can be worn handheld or over the shoulder
- Limited edition of 50 handbags

CAMIEL is a limited edition consisting of only 50 handbags. It was the first interdisciplinary experiment Lies Mertens performed, basing the lining of the design on interior objects Camiel van Noten created out of a mixture of acrylic and gypsum.

Designed in Antwerp, handmade in Portugal and Italy. We use a minimum of zippers and metals to increase the longevity of your bag.


Exterior: Italian / German Calf Leather.
Interior: Ivory coloured leather lining.
Measurements: 30 (L) x 11 (W) x 40 (H)

All our leather is certified with an LWG Silver or Gold rating. Ensuring the leather is tanned responsibly.

To keep the impact on our planet low, we invest in a production process that:
- Is energy-efficient
- Is low-waste
- Has a closed-loop-water system.

We recommend spraying your bag with a water repellent coating such as Nanex, to avoid marks caused by raindrops.
