How it began …
The story of SEBASTIANSTURM - Innovative Accessories starts in 2012. At the beginning the main idea "I’m going to make wood wearable" was part of the final examination of the wood-engineering-study of Sebastian Sturm. Therefore he worked on the design and production of protective covers and cases for notebooks and smartphones which should eventually consist of the natural material ‘wood’.
For this reason he developed in close cooperation with a veneer-manufacturer an unprecedented veneer-technology which made it possible to establish the wood not only in a long-life but also in a flexible and three-dimensional form. Initially this innovation seemed to be a difficult challenge for him but soon it became very encouraging.
Whereas this development process proved successful, more and more people were enthusiastic about his innovative concept. All these people were inspired and excited by the novel veneer, so that he created blueprints on handbags, designs and material combinations in the evening.
Due to the overwhelming feedback for the first sample items, Sebastian Sturm realized that his idea could have potential and decided to conquer the fashion world with it. From the beginning he was already sure that he would manufacture products only with the highest quality requirements:
Therefore he determined to use only this leather that is tanned in an environmentally friendly process. During the further processing, he also attaches great importance to the quality of craftsmanship. He found this skill at a traditional company in South of Germany. There is produced in high social standards. The result of these efforts is that each bag corresponds to a unique handmade masterpiece!
With the first collection of seven bag-models in different variations, the young wood technician started with its online shop SEBASTIANSTURM.NET in October 2015.
In November 2016 opened Sebastian Sturm in Buch in the near of Illertissen (in Bavaria) his own show room. It offers the possibility to persuade yourself of the latest trends of bags and at the same time it combines a unique shopping experience!
Today, SEBASTIANSTURM is a constantly growing company for handbags and accessories with first class quality, distinctive creations and an amazing composition of leather-craftsmanship and real wood trend pieces.
