Lisette started her monsak career as a bag maker but quickly went on to take photos of the bags ..at Margriet’s attic. By now she has her own mini photography studio, in the atelier.
How did you end up at monsak?
A friend of mine knew Margriet, and knew she was looking for people to make bags and so I started with stitching a couple of hours per week. Four years later, I do the photography once a week and I do not stitch anymore.
Why are you a member of the monsak family?
In a small company you are more part of the entire process and you get to be part of all different aspects of the business, not just photography: at monsak you are able to do all that. And I always had a sweet spot for leather and like being creative and here I get to be that.
What is your favorite model and why?
Sak 8, a nice large shopper with an additional compartment at the front, which is really convenient. This makes it visually more appealing, to me, than one without a compartment. As an added addition, Margriet, made me shorter straps in order for me to hang the sak on my bike, which is also very convenient.
What does a perfect weekend look like to you?
A nice lunch or coffee with girlfriends, going to a garage sale and going home with some beautiful finds. And of course, sleeping in.
Which skills would you like to develop and/or learn?
Indesign and Illustrator.
