Ondura is a brand born out of a total dissatisfaction with the throw away fashion of today. This is the heart of the Selvedge Run. Leens Jan has had an interesting education. First training as a Carpenter, then a fashion designer and all the time living the punk lifestyle out of the back of his custom built truck.

In 2013, the fast-fashion industry in which he worked was sickening Leens. The search for a trucker wallet gave him an out. When he could not find a wallet he was happy with, he simply made one himself. Ondura was born. The products he creates are the perfect melding of the life he leads. The craft from his time as a carpenter, his understanding of design from his time in fashion and the minimalistic approach from living in a six square meter truck. Leens’ strengthens this approach by sourcing as locally as it is possible; the materials he uses are mainly sourced from within Germany, where he himself comes from.
