THE FOUNDER OF STUDIO EBN
STUDIO EBN was founded in 2013 by designer Elisabeth Benonisen and is based in Bodø, Norway just north of the Arctic Circle. After working with designer Giles Deacon in London, her roots lured her back to her hometown Bodø, where the brand is based.
The brand evolved from the idea of using material connected to the region, and developing sustainable premium accessories that also tell a story of life in the North. This led Elisabeth to create handbags and accessories, where the choice of using fish leather is a sustainable and exotic option.
Studio EBN offers an edited selection of bags that are both versatile and timeless. Instead of basing the collections strictly on seasons that will eventually expire, new designs and colors are gradually added in an organic manner. The result is slow fashion with substance and proximity to nature and origin.
