A quest to create the perfect bag

  • • Kathrin is completely self-taught
  • • She only uses sustainable resources
  • • Simplicity is key to her work

In 2012 Kathrin Heubeck was on the hunt for a simple, chic, high quality leather bag. But to her surprise she couldn’t find what she was looking for in all of New York. So she decided to take matters into her own hands. An architect by training, she used her aesthetic experience and her model making skills to create her perfect bag in her Brooklyn apartment. “I wanted to do everything by myself and learn things from scratch,” she says. Since 2017 she has had a workshop and store in a prime spot in Munich, and her leather goods, made to the highest ecological and aesthetic standards, are now renowned in the city.
