Having trained as an art teacher, Gerda explored several artistic disciplines –such as painting, print making, photography & ceramics– before starting designing handbags in the late nineties. This diversity later led to her unique vision and approach. She expanded her technical knowledge by attending various specialized training courses in leather processing, both in Belgium and the Netherlands. But most of her knowledge was gained by developing her own handbags in her home studio in Asse, in the middle of the countryside surrounding Brussels. In that studio, she started developing a growing collection of extraordinary handbags & leatherware, both for women and men. Bags are being sold in a few selected shops, as well as at home and online.


Next private sale on Saturday 3 December 11am-5pm and Sunday 4 December 2pm-5pm.

Location: Optiek Weytjens - de Vironstraat 1A - 1730 Asse.

Current collection VS Previous collection

Everyone has a different idea of what a practical handbag should be, and Gerda De Ceukelaire knows this. That is why every one of her handbags embodies practicality in its own way.  There are proper ‘hand’ bags, but also shoulder bags and crossover bags.

Combining beauty, style and practicality, Gerda De Ceukelaire’s bags are perfect examples of the authentic purity of form she maintains. Her work features neutral, basic colours with sunny and fresh accents that will brighten up your entire look. Hence, the bags can be worn in any season.

All models from the ‘Current Collection’ are available for purchase right now and can be delivered immediately. In addition, an overview of  almost all previous models can be found under ‘Previous Collection’. Though now out of production, some of these models might still be available in stores, and could, in future, find their way back into the ‘Present’ collection.
