Please introduce yourselves.
We’ve been married for five years and we run our brand Fennec together. Aside from our main job, we also run a bar called ‘Enzo’ in Seongsu-dong and engage ourselves in designing fashion-related graphics as well.
How did Studio Fennec begin?
(Oh) Before establishing Fennec, I was employed at a company as a graphic designer. I used to work on my MacBook most of the time but finding a nice laptop case wasn’t easy so I went ahead and made a sample version myself. Then my friends and acquaintances showed interest, which sparked me to draw up a business out of it and that’s how it all began.
‘Fennec’ is known as the ‘desert fox.’
(Oh) When we were debating on our brand name, I was picturing myself talking to a client, hearing out their needs and advices, then the image of a desert fox came up, particularly for its large ears. From <Little Prince>, which I love, fennec has always been my favorite. There, its famous quote “tame me” also matches with our leather goods perfectly. Because leathers become more charming as it wears, according to the way one ‘tames’ it.
