We are about craft in the purest sense of the word. Craft is the essence of what we do and we make things the way we say.
We are very specific about what we make our products from and how we do it. If we say something is hand-stitched, that doesn't mean a hand has guided it through a sewing machine, it means a craftsman has stitched it by hand with an awl, thread and needles.
All our products are designed and handmade in our studio in Hamburg, Germany, by Emre Telli, Art Director and sole craftsman behind the brand. The meticulous practice allows us to document the origins as well as the production process and share those stories with you, down to the true cost of each product.
Our concern with the fashion industry is the lack of honesty in terms of how the product is made. That's why at ELBHAVN we endeavor to be transparent in what we do. We provide price transparency with a breakdown and a clear markup so you can understand why things cost the way they do and draw your own conclusions about value and fairness.
With ELBHAVN you own quality, that is designed to last. We want you to experience our leather goods for years, even decades, to come. We do without conventional trade margins despite high material costs. Our products are offered directly to you exclusively at elbhavn.com. This allows us the opportunity to leave out the traditional retail mark–up.
