BRAUN HAMBURG

A Mission of Luxury & Sustainability

  • Past. Present. Future.
    • We here at BRAUN Hamburg are very much aware that our actions today affect our future. With a company history of almost 90 years, we are now operating in the 3rd generation and currently employ more than 120 staff, which means we bear a great responsibility for people and the environment. We value transparency, progress and keeping control over everything we do. That is why all our staff have permanent employment contracts – and some of them have been with us for decades.

      We produce most of our image material, texts and campaigns in-house, and keep in close contact with our suppliers and manufacturers, with whom we have long-standing partnerships. They guarantee the very best quality for all our goods: a quality that we will proudly continue to pass on to you, and which we want to link even more closely to the topic of sustainability.

      Our way of managing our company with lasting tradition – with pride in our past and an optimistic and innovative eye on what the future may bring – means a lot of work, but also plenty of opportunities to actively shape the future of BRAUN Hamburg in a more sustainable way.

      We have taken the first steps, but many more are yet to come. We would love for you to accompany us on our path!

  • Luxury is Eternal
    • Luxurious menswear is our business, our passion. But luxury also means longevity – something that we here at BRAUN Hamburg want to make you aware of. Luxurious materials, a premium finish and traditional sartorial craftsmanship – the garment or accessory you purchase deserves the same care by your hand that our masterful manufacturers have invested in making these items. A cashmere jumper, for example, or a bag made of luxurious leather will – with the right care – be timeless and ageless companions, not governed by fleeting trends. Such items can easily become something to be handed from father to son. Investing in a quality product also means investing into the future.

  • Short Routes. Enduring Partnerships.
    • In addition to the many labels and designers like Brunello Cucinelli, Closed and FTC Cashmere, which we carry in our product range and are fully focused on environmentally friendly production and innovative, recycled materials since their inception, we also insist on sustainability for our own brands: VON BRAUN and 04651/ A trip in a bag. All our goods are manufactured exclusively in Europe. All our VON BRAUN cashmere items are made in Italy with sustainably produced cashmere. For 04651/ A Trip in a Bag, we work closely with our long-term partners in Portugal and ensure favourable employment conditions for everyone working for us. In addition to eco-cashmere, we also process organic cotton and mulesing-free merino wool. Our goods are transported on land and only on short routes. Each of our designs is durable, timeless and produced to the highest standards, making them a counterweight to today’s fast fashion movement.

Sustainable Packaging

Since December 2021, our new packaging consists of innovative carton material, which is made of 70% recycled paper and 30% grass, and is produced in northern Germany. Grass is a highly sustainable raw material and therefore significantly more resource and eco-friendly.

Do your part: our packaging material will be even more sustainable if you re-use it after receiving your order, or if you dispose of it appropriately.

Climate-Neutral Shipping

We want to send and receive everything with the environment in mind: that is precisely why we at BRAUN Hamburg have decided to offer our customers exclusively climate-neutral shipping to actively contribute to reducing overall CO2 emissions.

A little tip: have your order sent to a parcel station or Packstation, if you won’t be at home to receive it. That’s how you can help contribute to a more sustainable online trade.
