We strive to create highly functional, handmade products that are built to last, that allow you to be effortlessly prepared, wherever you go.

PAKTA Studio was founded in 2017 by Hana Komanová and Kerim Hudson. Whilst moving between cities around Europe, it was difficult to find bags and backpacks for everyday use and for travelling between places. Simple bags that looked and worked great for the city, but were also robust and reliable on the go.

We create bags for a new style of living, where the idea of local is no longer geographically restricted. Where friends and families are not just spread between cities, but countries. And where, in a strive for honesty and authenticity, one can explore the world, finding cultures and communities you wish to belong to.

We started by combining our backgrounds in fashion and print. Using natural fibres and environmentally-friendly inks to create robust designs that endure, but are soft on the environment.

Having initially met in Kerim’s native London, we naturally gravitated towards Hana’s hometown of Bratislava, a place where we could grow organically with the city and contribute to it’s creative rebirth.
