Passionate about design
Hi! I’m James. I make one of a kind fashion accessories with daring and unique designs from uncommon materials, that allow my customers show off their individuality. I design and develop products for passion, not for profit. All of my products are manufactured locally and by hand where possible.
What do I do?
BERLIN slim combines old fashion handwork with high tech production techniques. My blank wallets are prepared using laser cutting. While final assembly, sewing and screen-printing is done by hand. Each wallet goes through quality control before I apply the BERLIN slim stamp. My products and production techniques reflect the creative and free-spirited nature of Berlin.
Would I want my products?
When I discovered washable paper, it seemed like a material with a lot of potential. I made a wallet for myself, but was surprised when friends started asking for wallets of their own. I made many prototypes until I reached the design we have today.
It was clear to me from then on, that people want the same thing I do. Good quality, well designed products that make your life a little bit easier. So now, the only products I sell are products I would want to own myself.
If you’re gonna do something, you might as well do it right
— JAMES, Founder of BERLIN slim
