Our Philosophy

Oberwerth is not only a bag. Oberwerth is an idea. A statement. A conviction. Materials of the highest quality, outstanding craftsmanship, as well as sustainability in production and responsibility for our environment – these are the values that drive us. We want to combine the finest materials, the most intelligent design and the highest quality workmanship into a product that convinces, inspires and brings new joy every day. This is our quality promise to you.

Leather

Quality can be experienced with all your senses. You can see, feel and even smell it.

For our bags and accessories we only use finly selected cowhide from Italy and southern Germany. Especially the tanning of the leather is decisive for the later quality of our products. We ensure that the world’s leading environmental standards are adhered to in the manufacture of leather. For our CLASSIC LINE we only use vegetable tanned cowhide. The leather of the CASUAL LINE bags is tumbled by hand and is certified with the “Blauer Engel” environmental seal of approval. Knowledge of the origins and the exclusive use of leathers from environmentally friendly production are part of our philosophy and a matter of course for us.

Workmanship

Quality can be experienced on every day. For years.

The best materials are only good if they form a unit you can rely on. Our fine bag-makers combine the individual materials in careful handcraft and with years of experience to form a lifelong companion. From cutting to final inspection, every step is carried out in our manufacture. This way, no bag or accessory leaves our production facilities that we are not completely convinced of. Should a seam or closure become detached, we will repair your bag free of charge and for life after  a previous registration on our homepage.

Design

Quality is in the detail. Because details make life easier.

The bags adapt perfectly to the body, the soft shoulder padding makes the heavy equipment almost forgotten. For us, quality is not only material and workmanship, but also wearing comfort, protection and functionality. For our CLASSIC LINE we use vegetable tanned leather as well as the extremely tear-resistant and water-repellent CORDURA® fabric. This is not only very light but also makes the bags resistant to wind and weather. The CASUAL LINE bags are made of 100% velvety soft, tumbled cowhide leather. The tumbling process makes the leather so soft that it adapts ergonomically to the body. Our removable inner pockets are also covered with CORDURA® and provide additional protection for the valuable equipment. Individually placable inner divider pads allow the freedom to choose your own personal layout. LOXX® closures set accents and can only be opened when you know how. Our bags are well thought-out down to the last detail and manufactured with dedication – each of them unique and a companion for life.
