Our raison d’être

At rupher we’re addicted to graphic patterns in all shapes and forms. Most of our creativity comes out in 2D form, like a print, painting or an occasional logotype. The design of our bags is an attempt to transfer our obsession to an everyday object. Something we can carry with us at all times.

We believe in conscious consumption where need, product life-span, frequency of use and the environment should be part of any buying decision.

Leather is a natural, long lasting material. When purchased it is often an investment, meant to be used over a long period of time. It can be mended and repaired to further prolong its life span.

We buy our leather from Swedish tannery Tärnsjö Garveri. They use vegetable tanning methods and cooperate with nearby farms. The leather carries traces of a life outdoors, with insect bites and other imperfections that come with age.

The bags are designed and produced in Sweden, in small quantities and mostly based on order. In that way we don’t use more resources than we actually sell.  

When you invest in one of our bags we hope it will become a favorite and part of your 24/7 for years to come.
