aunts & uncles

Posted by Debbe Hamada on

We are thrilled to announce that we now carry handbags, backpacks and wallets from aunts & uncles. This family owned business is based in the Lower Rhine Region of German. The founder is an Austrian designer and mother of two, she noticed a growing demand in the leather industry for products with more emotional identity, personality and an increasing appreciation of materials. Since 2004 she and her "family" have enthusiastically developed and created new designs, consistently improving the old by combining tradition and the local zeitgeist. 

 

Their business name aunts & uncles” is inspired by their quirky and loving kinfolk of the Lower Rhine Region. It speaks of the slow movement, loyalty and honesty - traditional values which people from that area attach the utmost importance to. "Growth never happens at the expense of our partners or quality."

 

aunts & uncles leathers are free of CFC, PCB, PCP, formaldehyde and are dyed with colors that comply with the AZO and other European regulations. The major part of the leathers we use is being pre-tanned with trivalent chromium salts, which are harmless to health, during the first tanning stage. With the retanning the chrome content is being extracted out of the leather to a high percentage again and replaced by vegetal tanning agents, like e.g. bark.

We have a large selection of this beautiful leather line. Stop in to shop for a new bag or wallet or click through to our website to shop our full selection online.
