We are Studio EBN

Look different, look north. Discover the highs and lows of light. The fresh air, breathtaking nature, naked wind. The northern surroundings inspire us every day. STUDIO EBN uses the intersection between great nature and nordic timelessness as a mantra to deliver long-lasting products with purpose.

The fashion industry has been a part of the devastating environmental changes – however on the off chance that there is something we can do about it, it has to happen now. If not now, there is a chance that it will be too late for future generations.

The chance is therefore to change now. As there are multiple issues concerning our industry and our environment, where everything should be green – but not everything is – our mantra is to work towards sustainability to find the utmost environmentally friendly solution.

We are convinced that to deliver meaningful products we need to start by making small adjustments wherever we can within our society.  These changes can be done by your or me – together we can start by making a small change.  

Just be conscious, buy consciously.

STUDIO EBN pushes and approaches our commitment to sustainability using innovation. By utilizing fish skin from fish farming – a valuable material that would otherwise have been thrown away. This way we contribute to a circular economy. 

Studio EBN chooses salmon leather as our main material.

The salmon skin is up to nine times stronger than other types of skins due to its plywood (cross-fiber) structure. It is resistant and behaves just like leather. Who would know! The surface texture is suede to the highest degree, which makes the fabric soft with a prominent structure. 

The skin also has a vital influence on how our products will look. We consider the small size and thinness of the skin. The craftsmanship from raw material to finished product is time-consuming. As a result, our products are exclusive, handcrafted bags and accessories in sustainable Nordic salmon leather – as we work to leave the absolute smallest footprint behind us. 

Other sustainable materials we focus on are linen and recycled leather. We are currently working with organic reindeer skin and have already switched to recycled cardboard for our packaging.

Being green is something beyond purchasing eco. We promise to push this industry towards environmental and innovative solutions.

We have inspired others to think in the same direction and our initiative is seen and noticed. We have previously been interviewed by researchers, students, and other entrepreneurs for the work we do.

The innovation in the use of salmon skins in our industry is just one example of what we do to be greener. Exploiting leftover fish skin and repurpose it into the heart of all our creations. 

The arctic invokes our responsibility to continue respecting, producing, and sourcing out the fundamental elements from natural sources. We work for purpose-driven design for others to look further ahead, to continue the process of change within the industry. We believe that both you and our planet deserve nothing less.
