About Berliner Bags

Berliner Bags story began in 2014, when company founder Kees finished his Business studies at University of Amsterdam. While being a student, Kees noticed that it was hard to find a durable yet fashionable vintage bag for work and leisure. This gave him an idea to start a fashion startup specializing in sustainable vintage design bags.

Kees is not only founder of Berliner Bags, but also chief design officer of the brand. He is constantly increasing his knowledge about bag’s design at various seminars. Additionally, Kees attended design courses in Italy where he learned about various designs from ex-Gucci employees.

As startup grows, the range of products expands. In early 2019 Berliner bags presented company’s first modern black leather collection.

Designed with   in Berlin

All our bags are designed locally in Berlin and are inspired by this city. Majority of our images are also made in Berlin by young and talented photographers.

Why leather?

Some people would say “why leather, there are plenty other materials”. But we think otherwise! Leather is a perfect material for your new bag or backpack! We will explain why!

All our products are made of leather, which is a perfectly natural material. For interior lining we are using also natural material – cotton.

Leather is more sustainable and durable material. Properly maintained leather bag can be used for decades. Not like artificial leather, which highly contributes to fast fashion and ends up in landfills after one season. It’s better to buy one bag, but use it for long, instead of buying new every season. It is important to be conscious consumers.

Because all Berliner Bags products are made of natural materials, after they will become unfit for further usage, you shouldn’t be so worried about environmental impact, because all products will deteriorate properly within years.

All Berliner Bags backpacks are made of natural materials and we are proud to say that we are plastic free!

Slow fashion brand

Leather goods have an ability to last for generations and our goal is to design and produce bags which will be used for decades.

Our company creates bags which are quite minimalistic and not getting out of style. We strive to make bags as functional and time resistant as possible. As a result, we are using best quality materials such as high quality ‘OKK” and “YKK” zippers, full grain leather and vegetable tanned leather. By working directly with manufacturers, we can have lower prices and ensure high quality. Therefore, we can guarantee 1-year warranty for all our products. As products will last longer, customers will reduce their environment impact.

We as a company feel that we can make a difference.  We believe that less is more. We prefer to have less bags models, fewer collections, but have them in higher quality. We feel that fashion trends that change every 3 months are outdated and cause to many environmental problems. We totally agree with Jean Paul Gaultier and his ideas.

We think it is ridiculous to have a lot of designs / models. More, more, more: it becomes more about EGO, rather than about products.

Relationships with our customer

Our goal is to have a long-term relationship with our customers. We are striving our best to produce high quality leather bags and make our customers happy. We want our customers to remember “Berliner Bags” every time they need a new backpack, messenger bag, weekender or any other products.
