About us
SPEKLAB was founded by cloths/shoe designer and barista Marieka Ratsma & marketeer and bartender Erwin Giezen. True Burgundian artisans from the “Green Heart” of the Netherlands with a preference for beautiful designs made from natural and durable materials. They have combined their love for craft, design, coffee, cocktails, beer and good food in SPEKLAB‘s high-quality leather aprons.

SPEKLAB stands for Burgundian pleasure, true craft, quality and durability straight from the “Green Heart”. the “SPEKLAB” name consists of a composition of the Dutch words for bacon and laboratory. SPEKLAP with a “p” at the end means slice of bacon in Dutch.

Our motivations
SPEK (bacon) stands for a Burgundian lifestyle and nature in general. Enjoy life, but with respect for all that lives or has lived. We strive to keep our products as pure and close to nature as possible. Therefore, the treatment of our leather is 100% organic and without chemical additives, which makes the leather sustainable and biodegradable.

LAB is a laboratory in the creative sense of the word, true craftsmanship and pure quality. All our products are made with pleasure and passion, from only the best materials available. As a result, all our products are of a high quality and fulfill us with great proud.
