German accessories brand Tsatsas has crafted a sleek and functional leather bag, titled ‘931’, in collaboration with renowned German industrial designer Dieter Rams—who first designed this very bag for his wife in 1963.

The clear design language of the ‘931’ bag is a testament to Rams’ lasting aesthetic; its timeless style would leave many surprised to know that Rams created the bag some 56 years ago. From 1961, Rams worked as chief designer for international product brand, Braun; for whom his wife Ingeborg also worked as a photographer. It was there that Rams participated in leather crafting workshops, and decided to create a one-off design as a surprise for his wife, although the design was never actualized in production. Fast-Forward to the present day, and Tsatsas has introduced a re-edition of the bag’s design to the market, transcending eras and trends. ‘931’ is available in either black or concrete. The leather bag features a minimalist exterior, a top a handle, and detachable shoulder strap.
