Out of the desire to create shoes and leather goods that couple contemporary Scandinavian design and authentic Italian craftsmanship ATP Atelier was born. The mission is to challenge the concept of luxury - to make it smart, not redundant. With a sustainable mindset ATP Atelier sets out to create, not just because, but to make a real difference in women’s lives.
The year was 2011 and the place was Otranto, a small Italian town in the south in Puglia. This is where founders Maj-La Pizelli and Jonas Clason spent a vacation with family and friends. Walking through town they found a small studio making sandals. Everyone got a pair and wore little else for the rest of the summer. And that’s what sparked the idea of ATP Atelier.
