The Brand



Since its inception in 1999, the Viennese label EVA BLUT has stood for innovative and conceptual fashion and accessory design. Over the last twenty years, its mastermind and founder Eva Buchleitner has researched and optimised the exciting interaction between fashion and product design in many collections and collaborations.

Her unique approach has received accolades at international festivals, exhibitions, and workshops in fashion, art, design, and architecture. 


The Designer

Under the label EVA BLUT, Eva Buchleitner has been designing fashion and accessories since 1999. Since 2010, its focus has been the design of innovative, versatile and adaptable bags.


“What interests me about bags is that they mark the exact boundary between look and function, between fashion and product design. And in this way – rather like shoes or a code – clearly convey the image you wish to present.” 


Besides developing her own collections, Eva Buchleitner taught accessory and product design at the Fashion Insitute Vienna, Hetzendorf Palace. She is one of the founder members of the independent collaborations  modebus and WeShowroomParisNow


EVA BLUT’s bags combine aesthetics and functionality in a unique way.  

The Production


EVA BLUT bags are produced in small series in close collaboration with traditional leather workshops in the Czech Republic and Hungary, using Italian leather. 

These collections are contributions to the long European tradition of leather gallantry and aim to develop it further.


Material & Care


EVA BLUT bags are very light as there is no hidden weight from inlays or metal fittings: the material responds to the needs of the form. This is the criterium for choosing the right type of leather. Softness and strength are crucial. An even shade and beautiful grain pattern give the bags a highly tactile and visual quality. 

The current collection is made of full-grain aniline calfskin in combination with hand-knitted pieces of waxed organic cotton. cotton. This approach is like an antithesis to 'fast fashion'. A richness represented by the time and knowledge that goes into it. 


Another serie uses offcuts from previous seasons, which means that no new material has to be produced. These offcuts are too high quality to be treated like waste. The result is captivating in its diversity of colour, feel and look - a delightful, almost exuberant richness.



Flexible Bag


EVA BLUT bags are surprisingly functional and go hand in hand with lightness and versatility.


The goal is clear: EVA BLUT bags should feel good to carry and, despite all their functionality, be more of a statement than a utility object.

Their aesthetics are not a contradiction to their functionality, but the latter is the result of an experimental process in which the bag wants to be fundamentally rethought.


The result is pure and striking. 

The changeable and elegant companions meet high demands of quality and design.
