My shop in Bruges is called "The Spirit of Bruges", in the Stoofstraat 11 in the centre of Bruges. The collections I sell are handmade in the country of origin with high-quality materials.
My brand VHL-designs, Veerle hoorelbeke Leather and/or lifestyle, is sold in my store and stands for handbags for him and her , inspired on passion, nostalgia, craftsmanship, class, sensuality but most of all durability, timelessness and qualitatively.
"Style is knowing who you are" is my slogan for my brand VHL but also for the collections I sell in my store and online. It is by knowing one-self that you can buy the most appropriate and specific accessory and make you shine like never before!!
It all started like this; I was importing for some years already FSP handbags from Capetown, known for the special postman bag in springbok skin. By selling these bags all over in Belgium I wanted to try and create my own style. After following a 5 year course in Lokeren specialized in leather craftsmanship , for shoes and handbags, I designed my own collection VHL .
VHL is still working together with FSP, the production house in Capetown, for the production for my styles but also for the FSP styles , made by Fiona.
