Take your bag and fill it with memories!

I'm Aileen and I freed myself from a dichotomy by founding my label "Unicorns instead of ponies!
Because I love life, I love celebrating, I love beautiful things! Everything that is fancy (and glitters) and I love stuff as banal as bags!
At the same time, however, I attach great importance to sustainability and responsible consumption (my little one is finally watching me).
The question was now for me:
How do you bring that together? And why is it so important to me to implement this especially with bags?

As I said before, I love bags.
As I recall, even as a child the greatest thing I ever did was empty my bags after an eventful day. To marvel at my treasures. The small angular stone, the beautiful colorful leaf, the soft feather, the almost empty lipstick, which mom left me after long begging (I see parallels to my daughter).
When I was a teenager, it was tickets, the little bottle with my favourite scent, the notebook... and now as mom mainly the above mentioned stuff, only that it actually belongs to my daughter ;).
Do you also know those little details that somehow still contain the magic of the moment?

What I'm saying is-
You can easily store possessions in bags -or- you can keep memories in them.

And that's the point.

When I went out with my bag, I came back with memories!

And little relics of those moments were safely in my pocket.
So my bag became a symbol of good times and special moments. A little ritual to celebrate life.

That's exactly why I now produce leather bags with my label for special occasions, which meet the high standards of being allowed to accompany you to moments of happiness.
Because we attach enormous importance to sustainability and quality, because we want to give you something consistently beautiful and take responsibility for the environment. And we also see it as our responsibility to make our designs as unusual and unique as possible, because life has so many incredible facets and no two moments are alike.
That is why we only produce unique pieces. Every single one of our bags is unique in the world!
They are conscientiously handmade in our studio.
We use the precious raw material leather, which we consider a by-product of the industry. Of course, we only purchase organic leather from Germany as well as unusual leather remnants from a family business directly from Italy.
To make our designs even more unique, we also spend a lot of time in a joint workshop in Berlin, where we use a laser cutter to create distinctive effects in the leather.

I promise you will find nothing comparable.

And now grab your bag and fill it with memories :) .

All my love

Frequently asked questions
Can I have leather bags made?

Yes! if you like a bag in the shop and you would like to have a set for all your bridesmaids, for example, I would like to make similar bags matching the color concept of your wedding or in the favorite color of the recipient for you. The price of the bags is then identical with the original bag in the shop. If you would like a matching bag for your daughter, for example, I would be happy to design one for you! Please note that I don't make exactly the same bag several times, because "Einhörner statt Ponys!" only have single pieces. Please let me know when exactly you need the bags. A production time of 14 days is ideal for me, but I do my best to help faster in "emergencies".

Can I have a leather bag designed to match my outfit?

I'd love to!
Send me a photo of your dress, tell me the concept of your party and what is important to you and I design and manufacture your exclusive leather bag. The actual purchase takes place only after (!) completion - I send you first photos of our result - so that you can then be fully satisfied with your new bag.
The cost of the manufactured bag is also based on the price of the bags in the shop.
A production time of 14 days would be ideal, of course I always do my best to be able to help faster "in an emergency".
What I do NOT offer is pure tailoring. So I leave it to others to sew bags according to exact specifications of size/form/colour/material etc..
