Lenaerts leather goods

In 1870, five generations ago, craftsman Willem Lenaerts set up a saddlery and leather business in Mechelen's beguinage. It was handed down from father to son and survived two world wars. In 1904 the shop moved to No. 17 Bruul where, thanks partly to an excellent after-sales service, subsequent generations managed to survive amidst the growing number of chain stores. Lenaerts specializes in handbags, rucksacks, suitcases, computer bags, umbrellas and small leather items and is a household name in the wider region around Mechelen.


There are any number of reasons for choosing Mechelen as your shopping destination! For one thing, here you escape the hustle and bustle and shop against a backdrop of historic architecture rather than traffic! What is more, the shops are all within easy walking distance of each other. Most are concentrated in the Bruul – Ijzerenleen – Onze-Lieve-Vrouwestraat triangle and side streets where traffic is restricted. High-street chains and chic boutiques stand shoulder to shoulder with traditional specialist shops. So Mechelen has something for everyone: from trendy to classic, from vintage to cutting-edge.
