Our Heritage

It all began with a vision of a young man in Kirn, Germany, who wanted to invent his own icon of heritage.  

From what was started off as an upholstery and saddle crafts enterprise, Braun Büffel has now grown into a renowned leather accessories House that is revered for its exceptional German leather craftsmanship and resilient focus on functionality.  

Bold and innovative, each piece of Braun Büffel is a distinctive leather accessory crafted beautifully for the confident, discerning individual.
