About

Luxury leather carry goods, handmade in Berlin.

Rawfind produce contemporary leather goods inspired by a love for simplicity, clean lines and perfect functionality.

Every item is carefully hand crafted in our Berlin studio. From pattern making and material selection to the photography and visual direction, we take pride in perfecting every detail of the creative process.

We believe in slow, sustainable craft, allowing each individual item to tell its own story and represent our creative values.


OUR LEATHER

Our new Jet Black Collection is made using the finest Italian vegetable tanned leather. This traditional, slower method of tanning has been in existence for thousands of years. It uses the natural tannins found in tree bark and other vegetable matter, and no additional chemicals.

Our Original Collection uses natural, undyed vegetable tanned leather from Belgium. With exposure to sunlight and the natural oils from your hands, it will develop a rich caramel colour and beautiful patina.

We choose full grain hides that are full of character, leaving the naturally occurring imperfections as visible features of our products. Over time, the leather will soften and stretch a little to fit its contents like a glove.


THREAD & ELASTIC

Each item is completely hand stitched using a traditional saddle-stitch method, which is actually stronger than the typical lock stitch created by sewing machines.

We use a waxed, braided polyester thread specifically made for hand stitching. It’s extremely durable and very resistant to sun damage and the general wear of being in bags and pockets.

Our Original Collection products incorporate an elastic strap for fastening. Although it will withstand the rigours of daily use, we know that the leather may eventually out-live the elastic. We therefore offer a free elastic replacement service should it eventually wear out, become over-stretched or break.

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

All our products are made from the highest quality vegetable tanned leather. At first the leather may feel a little stiff, but over time it will soften to fit its contents like a glove.

As it starts to wear in, a gentle buff with a soft cloth will bring back its natural shine. If your product gets wet, allow it to air dry away from any direct heat sources, as these can cause the leather to dry out. 

Products from our Original Collection are constructed to evolve over time and with exposure to sunlight - the un-dyed leather will deepen to a rich, dark caramel colour and develop a unique patina. Exposure to direct sunlight may cause a tan line under the elastic strap, so keep the elastic off occasionally to help reduce this.
