The Bottega of Van der Borne

Posted on

You know you’re getting into good design when the creator is as madly in love with the materials and production as the end result. Somewhere between David Hasselhoff and a New York pizza pie is Amsterdam’s highly sought after boutique accessories: circle purses, eyewear chords, and camera straps.

“When you are a romantic and a dreamer and quite morose at times this can be an overwhelming thing in your everyday life and for me I suppose it does influence everything I do. So naturally I will like this vibe in pictures, art and products as well.”

Where form and function meet mega style, Anna Hegeman is turning on the go into a looking good. A million ideas became one under the single kernel: the inspired traveller. But not without her own hours of globetrotting and crafting did this top shelf product line evolve.

Like Hegeman, if you’re effortlessly stylish, well-travelled, innovative, and all things hip without the ster, you probably know a thing or two about good design. In which case you are particular about your look, items you carry with, purchases, and time spent. The Van der Borne Bottega is dialed in. Anna and her partner know plenty about design and mingle well with creativity, factoring all of the above into a label of must haves.

As eccentric and authentic as her designs, if you don’t now Anna yet, know her work on
