DECADENT is an independent company founded in Copenhagen, Denmark in 2005. Behind the brand is Karina Mundt Holst, owner and creative director. After several years in the fashion industry she created her own brand, as she fell in love with her mother’s old bag from the 70’s. Karina Mundt Holst redesigned this particular bag and named it Working Bag. Today this is an iconic DECADENT bag. All DECADENT styles are produced at a family-owned factory in Turkey where know-how and craftsmanship have been passed on through generations.
DECADENT was founded around one particular bag, a bag with a history, in clean design and with a classic appeal. This classic look is still the essence of the brand, and the variety in the collection lays in the many colours and leather qualities. Every season, new icons have been and will be added. We want to create bags for women of all ages, any purpose - day or night, any outfit. The designs are influenced by everyday life of women around the world and their needs for practical, but yet stylish bags and accessories. We never let trends dictate our design; we find inspirations in trends to create effortless, essential bags and accessories in clean, classic and cool design and in a high quality.
DECADENT is built on a desire to act with respect for people and animals and at the same time insure exclusive, long lasting products. Our bags and accessories are made in the best leather quality and in a simple design that stand the test of time. The leather used for all DECADENT styles come from the food industry. This ensures optimal use of animals, and that no animals are slaughtered just to use their skins and reject the rest. The Turkish tannery, from which we get all leather, meets EU's strict environment quality standards. The tannery seeks to reduce their negative footprint by choosing better production methods and by creating beautiful long lasting leathers for the production. Our production in Turkey is very special to us. The family-owned factory is know for its proud tradition of producing leather bags and asseccories in high quality and with many exclusive, handcrafted details. All employees work under good conditions. By placing our production and tannery in Turkey, we ensure that bags and accessories are produced with respect for people and animals, and at the same time that the environmental transport impact stays at a minimum.
