Alkioni Moutsardeli and Danai Gavrili combined their passion for minimal aesthetics, timeless design and innovative materials, and created Lommer, a brand with unique bags and accessories, where the consumer has the final word in the design of the product, according to his aesthetic and functional needs. Thus, the name Lommer is an acronym for (we) Love Materials (and we) MEet Requirements.
The reason for launching Lommer was our passion to create something of our own from scratch.
Lommer is a minimal brand, perfectly balanced between fashion design and product design, and our creations are the result of an original recipe.
So we started going to the industrial areas of Athens and looking for materials in order to find ways to make different bags.
Consumers who buy Lommer are aware of what they are buying, and the reasons they are buying it.
Our inspiration is drawn mainly from our walks in industrial areas and the search for materials used in other sectors than in classical fashion.
Our production takes place in our facilities in Athens.
Since some materials cannot be found in Greece, we also import from European Union countries.
The main material we use is EVA, a foam polymer that is manufactured to our specifications so as to be as suitable as possible for our bags.
It is wonderful to live and create in Greece. I have just returned from Milan with the aim to stay in Greece and create and I think it’s a country that inspires you no matter what.
We have two awards for our products, in 2016 we received the A Design Award.
In 2018 we were awarded the International Design Award for our EVA pack which is our backpack.
