Like most good things Plumbag Project began making bags in response to a personal need. The founder Alexandra John is very passionate about natural and pure materials. When she was a child, her family had a bag they used to gather plums with. It was so beautifully simple in both – its shape and material. Following the example of this “plum bag” Alexandra decided to produce this very bag herself almost 20 years later.

Plumbag Project stands for clarity in design and the beauty of untreated, natural leather. Handcrafted in a little studio in Berlin since 2013, Plumbag Project loves to pay attention to quality in each and every detail.


Our bags are made of natural Nappa leather from Germany. The leather workmanship is environmentally sustainable and eco-certified. Its natural texture and soft handle is a result of vegetable tanning without synthetic finishing coat. Every bag leather has its individual characteristics. It will darken over time and develop its own patina. So you will make it yours.
