ATP Atelier was founded in 2011 by Jonas Clason (cofounder of Whyred) and Maj-La Pizzelli (former product manager of Filippa K and founder of How). ATP Atelier was born out of the desire to create shoes that couple contemporary Scandinavian design and authentic Italian craftsmanship with a keen eye for details. Their shoes and handbags are designed in Sweden and handcrafted in Italy, using vegetable tanned leathers as whenever applicable.  ATP feels it is their duty to constantly push boundaries and be curious, ask questions and support initiatives for new technology that promotes a more conscious fashion industry. Always eager to test out new ideas, of which their metal free nappa is a great example. The leather is created through a unique, still patent-pending, process based on a rapidly decomposing organic chemical. The tanning process is non-polluting and has a very low impact on the environment.
