As designers, producers and vendors, we asked ourselves: how do we sell our goods in a modern and sustainable way? The answer is: through a platform that shares our values.
We do, becuase we care.
What we save, saves us.
We value timeless over trendy, few over many and plain over fancy. At every stage of the production process we aim to minimize waste and our environmental footprint, and maximize support for local community and suppliers. Less but better.
No middle-men. No seasons. No sales.
We charge our customers a single, fair, honest price. We have no middle-men and sell our products directly to you. We don’t do seasonal sales because our stock doesn’t become obsolete. It’s a part of respecting our clients and our own work.
Under one roof.
We believe that the best quality products can be made locally and be affordable to everyone. Most products available on Biosphe.re are crafted in the European Union with respect not only for the environment, but most importantly for their makers.
Less but better.
Biosphe.re stands for the inordinate power of good design. Our products are useful, honest and aesthetic, designed right down to the last detail and made from high-quality materials to be durable and long-lasting. Less but better.
Sustainable design and responsibility.
Biosphe.re generates as little waste as possible. As both vendors and makers, we know that all our choices have an environmental impact. We operate with that in mind, only choosing natural, sustainably sourced raw materials, components and packaging that are long-lasting and don’t create waste.
Be an activist.
We take our social responsibility seriously. Our mission is not just creating beautiful, ethically-made products, but also using the power of our business to give back. For every Biosphe.re product purchased, we donate 3% of our sales to support non-profit organizations around the world.
Respect your privacy.
Less algorithms, more human.
The more we use technology to communicate, the more we long for real-life human interactions. We don’t let algorithms replace our intuition. And our intuition is to sell products through Biosphe.re in a way without buying ads and in a way that respects our customers’ online privacy and personal data. We create our own content and deliver it in an organic way.
Design & Origin
We respect our mother nature and we belive it would be such a shame to participate in devastation of the planet Earth. So we try as much as it's possible to follow our ethos of being natural. That's why designing our products we conciously decided to use:
Vegetable-tanned Leather made in Poland
We only use certified and chromium-free naturally tanned leathers, prepared in one of the most experience tannery in south part of Poland. Vegetable tanned leather is tanned using tannins and other ingredients found in vegetable matter such as tree bark, wood, leaves, fruit, and roots. In addition, each leather part in our bags is carefully prepared and impregnated in order to survive the atmospheric conditions.
YKK® zips made in Japan
We use YKK® lightweight fully waterproof zips which maintain the highest quality.
Leathercraft Tools handmade in France
Founded in 1823, Vergez Blanchard has been a trusted tool source for luxury leather goods makers including Louis Vuitton and Hermes. 190 years later they are still considered the best in quality, dependability and longevity for leather tools.
PFAFF sewing machine made in Germany
Sewing is an art form requiring tools of precision. For over 150 years, PFAFF® has developed premium sewing machines distinguished by their sophisticated appearance, superior performance and exhibiting ultimate design freedom.
It's seems to be obvious, but it's not. Vast amount of companies want to produce cheaper and easier. Most of the processes are automated and outsorced to other countries. We have different approach, because we like do thing by ourselves to feel and value our passion.
