LEIT & HELD stands for honest products with a timeless design, that have travelled a short distance from sourcing to production and finally to our customers. Their pieces are manufactured close to their natural origin and along a sustainable and traceable value chain.
LEIT & HELD is founded in 2018. Pia Held is an Art Director and Designer, Dana Mikoleit works as an Interior Architect and Nina Conrad is a Sustainability Manager. As an interdisciplinary team with a unified vision, they came together to realize the demands of sustainable yet slow fashion. They took the time to ask people what they would like to know about the process of making a leather bag. The answer was: Everything.
While change is becoming more and more visible in the food industry, the fashion world is still a long way away from real change: trend and price continue to be more important than manufacturing and the real value of a good.
LEIT & HELD wants to break the status quo and show a new way of producing goods that is more conscious and more beautiful. With their first collection, they are able to provide complete transparency about their processes, and they invite other brands in the fashion and luxury industry to do the same.
