OUR STORY 2019-03-19T13:50:29+00:00

How it all began

Story of Berliner Bags begins in 2014, when Berliner Bags founder Kees was recently finished with his Business studies at University of Amsterdam. At this time, he saw an opportunity to start a fashion start-up specializing in sustainable vintage design bags. This happened because he, as a student, noticed, that it is hard to find a durable jet fashionable vintage bag for work and leisure. This gave him an idea to start creating designs and bags himself.

Kees is not only founder off Berliner Bags, but also chief design officer of the brand who is constantly updating his knowledge about bag’s design at various practical seminars in Germany. Not only that, Kees attended design courses in Italy where he was learning about design secrets from ex-Gucci employees.

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

Our mission

To provide high quality, durable and fashionable leather bags for a fair price.

Our vision

To become leading leather bags brand in Germany.

Fair business

With all our business partners we are seeking a fair relationship. We believe that by treating everyone good finally will result in high quality leather bags for our customers.  We are always ready to pay extra when it comes in buying materials to make sure that our customers get high quality products.

High quality and sustainable bags

Quality matters for us, therefore we use only high-quality materials to make our bags. Leather is vegetable tanned (tanning takes at least 40 days) and is non-chemically treated and dye free. We use only best in class YKK zippers. Fittings are made from strong metal. All this ensures that you will use a bag for a long time.

Sustainability means for us durability of our products. We do not want you to buy new bag every 6 months. We want you to be able to use our products as long as possible. This will help you to have a positive impact to environment.

Warranty and return policy

Because of our passion and high standards, each product has 1 years warranty and  100 day return policy.


Each bag is manufactured for you with love and passion. We communicate closely with our team of highly qualified and experienced craftspeople. Every leather bag is made for you with meticulous craftsmanship, which results in each one of our bags having its own unique history imprinted on its leather.

Designed with Love  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.

Naturally tanned leather

During the processing of our leather, we pay particular attention to maintaining high-quality standards. The leather is naturally tanned (the tanning process takes around 2 months) and is free of chrome. Due to this elaborate process, our entire range of bags are not only safe for the environment but also particularly friendly to the skin. Every piece of leather we use in our leather bags is selected for you with the utmost care. Subsequently, every bag is refined using natural oils, which gives it its brown colour. The leather is firm and robust to ensure that your new favorite bag will bring you plenty of joy for the longest time possible.

Note: Please note that colours may vary slightly. Our leather is naturally tanned, which can lead to the creation of small spots, scratches or stains, which will help endow your bag with its own unique charm.

Our Leather comes from India, Rajasthan, where we produce our products.
