Klès is a women’s accessories brand specialising in hand-crafted handbags and small leather goods.
The brand was created in 2015 by French UK-based designer maker Jessica Gomez with the belief that we shouldn't have to choose between style and craftsmanship. The aim was to create accessories that are well made and fashionable, yet timeless, that would last a lifetime. Our products are designed to be wardrobe staples that people will wear and cherish for many years.
We believe in slow fashion and in trying our best to produce sustainable accessories.
Each Klès product is handmade to order by Jessica with locally sourced leathers and fittings. Our products are 100% slow fashion, proudly made in England and they are hand-stitched for optimum quality and durability.
Most items are made of quality Italian vegetable tanned leather. This sustainable leather is produced with a traditional tanning process that uses natural ingredients such as tree bark.
The style is characterised by clean shapes, beautiful natural materials and a touch of elegance that create a refined simplicity. Jessica's minimalist approach to design can be appreciated at its most on the folded models that are made without stitches.
Mini collections with bold hand-painted details add character to the brand.
Psst! Klès, is pronounced [klays].
"When I created Klès, defining the style of the brand was of course very important, but the way the products would be made, consumed and used was equally crucial.
My accessories had to be well made, durable, sustainable and fairly-priced; with a timeless yet original design, that people could wear for a lifetime."
