About us

About us

BandWerk is more than just the label "Made in Germany" or empty phrases like "Luxury" and "Premium" buzzwords that can be found in countless product descriptions nowadays.

BandWerk stands for uncompromising quality products with the necessary transparency to justify this claim. Since we founded the company in 2015 and launched the first four Apple Watch straps, we have followed three principles: high-quality materials, elaborate craftsmanship, and all this at a fair price.

This means that the main sources of our leather are tanneries in Italy and the USA, where we purchase Cordovan Shells from the world-famous Horween Tannery, for example. When selecting the tanneries, we pay attention to gentle vegetable tanning and the ecological framework.


Our production process

Our production process

The further processing of our products takes place in Germany and Italy, where a piece of rawhide leather is turned into a unique leather accessory through a lot of fine bag-making.

Our products are not cheap to make all of this possible, but the prices are real: BandWerk does not offer any special offers or discounts. This way, you don't have to worry that you might find a product you just purchased somewhere else at half price the next day.

Only available right here

BandWerk products are only available here in the BandWerk online shop and our stores.

By excluding distributors, intermediaries, and retailers from the equation, we can guarantee the highest quality standards at a fair price. In addition, we are always the correct go-to contact if you have any questions or problems with an item. After all, nobody knows our products better than we do.


What's next?

What's next?

My co-founder Jonas, our team, and I will continue to work on great products for the Apple Watch, iPhone, and Co. We will never lose sight of our core values, which were the basis of our first line of products in 2015. I am sure that this trip will have many exciting stops in store and I would be delighted to have you.
