Bringing Superior Quality Straight to the Consumer

View all 20 Photos

The Oppermann brand is at the forefront of a new revolution in design fueled by the democratic opportunities of the Internet age. Through their website, the London-based firm is able to bring their high quality leather goods straight to the consumer, evading the ridiculous mark-up prices that come from dealing with traditional merchandisers. This trend could not have come sooner, as it helps combat the sweatshop system that for decades has flooded the market with inferior products made from poor materials. Oppermann, along with many other brands featured on this blog, stand committed to using only the finest materials and craftsmanship because they feel a product should be worth its cost. Oppermann’s products are handmade from fine Italian leather outside of Napoli, and utilize the ancient craft of vegetable tanning to ensure the leather meets their high standards of beauty and durability. This process not only leads to a better product, but uses natural materials, making it much more environmentally friendly than the factories that litter countries with loose labor laws. Their methods are slower and add to their overhead, but the results speak for themselves. Our team had the chance to see one of their leather bags in person, finding it to be “stunning,” and “a product of truly superior quality.” And with designs that are both unpretentious and contemporary, they give new hope for a world that seems to be drowning in cheap merchandise.
