A MARIA JOBSE product interflows inspiration gifted by nature, the Dutch color palate reminiscent of the Old Masters heritage that defined the vivid and distinct Dutch illumination of naturalistic allure. There is a quality of synesthesia to the label: it is not merely a concept or brand of objects but intertwines the experience in many senses and sentiments.
Maria Jobse responds to an all encompassing sense that unites a total spectrum of incoming stimulations. She takes her scenery as varied as nature, man made structures, human capacity; observing sensory qualities, reminiscing the golden ratio, tactile experience, shapes and connections. This is her nature and her fundament as a designer.
A natural, tactile design and creation process is at the core of the brand, uniting visual authenticity and high quality leather implementation in luxury items compliant to top grade quality and craftsmanship, locally hand manufactured. The shape and feeling of any design is the starting point for a new and refined definition of a bag or accessory.
This is future vintage, ready to be lived and relived by its owner, coming into personal shape and well worn shine that befits a quality designed and produced garment that outlasts seasonal novelty. To buy a MARIA JOBSE is to incorporate an object into one’s identity. The label does not outshine the user, it compliments him or her and appeals on a sensory level, a recognition of shared perspective on value beyond statement and reappreciation of a basic je ne sais quoi. It is consistent in toned down attitude, instinctively self aware of its natural values and individuality in approach.
An esteem for simplicity and a clear tone of voice in technical ingenuity, reinforce the clearest concept of a bag, any object, to an essence in contour, construction and detailing. In Amsterdam, it’s home base, the MARIA JOBSE label sticks to a straightforward definition of design, as necessity as the mother of invention.
Ensuring design, execution and finishing all in the ever boisterous studio and atelier, Maria Jobse delivers a constant focus on a non conventional, highly artisanal manufacturing process with a devoted and vibrant team.
