EXCLUSIVENESS THROUGH FINE CRAFTSMANSHIP.
Each KATRIN LANGER® bag is an unique piece, skillfully crafted with care and expertise. The label’s luxurious signature wooden frames are shaped using a traditional technique employed in the making of musical instruments. The logo is based on the shape of these wooden frames.
The wooden frame of each bag is made by hand in a complex process using makoré, nut or sequoia wood. It then undergoes several drying and varnishing processes before being covered with soft lamb nappa leather, python skin, glossy mother-or-peal inlays or thick silk with intricate embroidery. All decorations, chains and fastenings are rhodium and gold-plated. As each bag is a one-of-a-kind piece made of exclusive materials, it is given its own unique ID number.
KATRIN LANGER® bags are handmade in Germany using the technical expertise and skills of musical instrument building, which is probably one of the most exacting of all crafts. The exquisite collection is based on 16 different frame styles, each available in 62 designs.
KATRIN LANGER® bags are made step by step in a meticulous process by experienced musical instrument makers and embroiderers who pass their skills and craft secrets down from generation to generation. This traditional craftsmanship is used to make each model, and the result is a bag that is beautifully functional. Fair working conditions and strict quality controls play an extremely important role in production, upholding the quality seal “Made in Germany“.
The label KATRIN LANGER® was founded in 2012 by the designer Katrin Langer. Inspired by art and design, the house creates unique clutches aimed at international fashion lovers who expect quality and feminine elegance in a beautifully contemporary product.
