Okay, these “a woman can never have enough bags” sayings are a LITTLE bit cliché. But, let’s be honest, nothing can be further from the truth. Don’t we all want a matching bag with that a-ma-zing outfit that you’re going to wear today? To be honest, it is also one of the thoughts on which our whole concept was created. Beautiful, unique, handy ánd affordable bags, all in one. This way you could, theoretically speaking, get a matching bag with every single one of your outfits. We like!
Besides that, customer experience is very important to us. We are really committed to making sure that every customer enjoys the entire purchase process. We hope you’ll find inspiration in our photos and in our collection. That you’ll experience joy from unwrapping your purchase. And that you’ll especially enjoy the moment when you have ‘loaded up’ your new bag and take it out for the first time. By the way, should there be anything whatsoever we can do for you during the above described process, then our customer service will be always more than happy to help you.
The name TOUTESTBELLE? That is actually a pun. It’s a combination of the Dutch/Flemish word “tuttebel”, referring to a woman who likes to dress up, and the (wrong) French translation of “everything is beautiful”. So just a little joke essentially, because it’s important to smile every now and then. We hope you’ll see something you like and/or you will find some inspiration. Should you have any questions or suggestions, we always love to hear from you!
About Renske -started TOUTESTBELLE in 2012
Running to the end of the highest diving board you could possibly find, take a big jump with your eyes wide open and if it hurts, well, we’ll see about it then, right? Exactly. That has always been me as well. This actually all started in a very similar way, with my study Mandarin Chinese/Intercultural Communication in 2006. The Chinese economy was looking up, I wanted to enter the dynamic business world and how many Dutch girls can speak Chinese exactly? Enough motivation I figured. Throughout my time in China I experienced enough things that certainly qualify as one of my greatest (and weirdest) adventures, surely all memories for life. If you’ve never been there I would seriously recommend that you add it to your bucket list.
In 2010 I moved to London where I graduated from my Master Degree in International Business Management with Distinction. From that moment on, I understood what Loesje (a Dutch quote queen) meant with “sometimes you have dreams that will keep you awake at night until you make them come true”. So I just started, from nothing. My inspiration for TOUTESTBELLE I gained from the beautiful cities which I’ve been privileged to live in, from my travelling and from the many inspiring bloggers you can find online these days. It was not until the end of 2014 however, that I decided to fully focus everything on TOUTESTBELLE and from that moment on, it all went quite fast. These days I think about TOUTESTBELLE 24/7, it is hard work, but it is all well worth it. It is without doubt my one and only dream job.
My motto: “有志者事竟成” (where there’s a will, there’s a way). So should you be looking to start your own business as well. GO for it, put all your passion into it, and more importantly: never give up! Nothing great comes easy.
