our vision

We want to establish our rhubarb leather as a natural and innovative material in different lifestyle areas. We want sustainable, design-oriented eco-couture, modern and high-class interior and beautiful accessories. And since the rhubarb ingredients also possess excellent properties in the area of skin protection / skin care a natural cosmetic line will complete our portfolio in the near future.


Furthermore we want to show the enormous potential of a single plant, the importance of environmental protection, education, science, commitment and enthusiasm for a certain matter. And of course, as worthy of protection and unfortunately ephemeral our nature is.


Not least for this reason it is extremely important that we involve many regional companies, thus conserve natural resources and strengthen sustainably our business location. This begins with the cultivation of rhubarb and goes beyond the leather tanning to the product design.


Since our way has led from a scientific vision to economy, we want to encourage and support young entrepreneurs with good ideas and visions to make the world a little better together.
