What began as a family trade over a hundred years ago in Kirn, Germany, has now become a global symbol of style, strength and dependability. Loved by executives, favoured by travellers and fancied by fashionistas from Australia to Moscow, every Braun Büffel leather creation is a stirling example of the brand’s uncompromising craftsmanship, timeless appeal, and a legacy of excellence that dates back more than a century ago.

Four generations. One illustrious legacy. The Braun family didn’t just transform German leather making into a modern fashion statement, it ignited a worldwide passion for fine leather goods. With each generation came new inspirations and more imaginative designs. Braun Büffel might be a century old company, but it is as contemporary today as the day it started business in 1887.
