PHILOSOPHy

aunts&uncles is a family business based in the Lower Rhine Region that discovered a passion for leather bags. Since 2004 we enthusiastically develop and create new designs, improve the old and combine tradition and zeitgeist – always with the aim to make you happy.

The beautiful is made by those who create with heart. From the small bracelet up to the large suitcase, each of our products is handmade and unique. Each product has its own distinctive name, the different bags families cross-generationally offer a companion for life.

With use they gain their individual character and tell stories of everyday life, of friends, journeys and their quirky kinfolk. When you choose an aunts&uncles style, you become part of the family. You don’t go for every trend, have a high sense of values and a soft spot for individual, unconventional style.

“I love traces of use and objects which can tell stories. Contrasts and contradictions make life interesting.“ – Angelika Scheurer, creative hand and discoverer

 

STYLED WITH CARE

Practicality and functionality are equally important as a touch of originality – rough edges which make the product to an old friend. Our motto “styled with care” covers more than just the affectionate design and the love to details. It includes also our production conditions.

Since a humane working atmosphere, social competence and fair payment are our fundamental concerns, we only work with carefully selected manufactories in India and Italy, which are capable of meeting our high standards.

Thanks to a long term partnership and a personal closeness to our production facilities in India and Italy and a monitoring and certificating by world’s leading companies international standards for quality, health, safety, protection of the environment and social responsibility are guaranteed.

“People are more important for me than fashion trends. Confidence and honesty are the greatest potential of our brand.“ – Sven Scheurer, honourable business man and brand keeper

 

PRODUCTION

Our leathers are free of CFC, PCB, PCP, formaldehyde and are dyed with colours 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.

Chrome tanning enables the production of especially soft leathers and increases the durability. Only by means of extreme heat or mistakes during the tanning trivalent chromium compounds might turn to the unhealthy chromium VI. Combining the chrome tanning with the vegetal tanning reduces the possibility of chromium VI creation immensely. For guaranteeing our leather to be free from hazardous substances they are regularly controlled by globally recognised laboratories.
