My-bagfactory - as individual as you are ....
That's how it all started ...
An interview with the Founder and Creative Director of my-BagFactory, NiK Strauß:
"I just could not find her, the bag that had the simple, reduced style I love so much. Practical functions for every day were as important to me as an affordable price. It should be made of leather. "I love the smell and the great feeling of leather in my hand, I wanted to create a bag that would give me many years of pleasure and, over time, tell a story of my own – that’s only possible with leather!"
This search was the inspiration for the first bag collection under the FEYNSINN brand.
Oliver & NiK were both employed and together had the desire to start with their own small project "It was time for something special". In the beginning there was only the idea to make "more" out of their own passion for accessories and above all handbags. Oliver came from the marketing and eCommerce field and, thanks to the online sales channel, they were able to realize their vision of high quality but fair priced leather bags.
NiK brought the design expertise and deepened it in the beginning directly with a degree in accessory design in Milan and London. In Milan, she learned every step from the scratch to the finished bag. In London, the study focused on trends, market developments, collection creation and how bags and fashion trends fit together perfectly.
NiK produced the first prototypes: "Actually, they were only for me to test what's possible, but I was often asked which brand my bag would be and where you could buy it." That was the last impulse the two needed to quit and start the dream of myBagFactory. NiK & Oliver Strauß started in Geneva in Switzerland and produced their first bags exclusively in their studio.

Variety for every occasion
Our team is constantly working to provide you with a stylish partner in the form of a bag or luggage for every occasion to choose from. In the past, we have often taken ideas from you and developed them for you. In this sense, we have also created brand lines for different styles and occasions of use.
After the first puristic-urban product line from FEYNSINN, Oliver came up with the idea to launch a new travel and luggage line. On a train journey between Geneva and Paris, he had the idea of offering high-quality designed suitcases in the mid-price segment. We tested many designs and materials and visited numerous factories to find a partner that met our quality and price criteria. We found what we were looking for in Anhui, and after a long design and development period, we introduced the innovative FERGÉ travel and luggage brand.
During her design studies at the renowned fashion and design academy MODAPELLA in Milan, NiK met a good Italian friend. Through customer requests and suggestions, the two decided together to develop an exclusive bag series of genuine leather and Italian flair ... BACCINI was born.
Also inspired by conversations with customers and ideas for bags for college, school or work, our team worked with students from Stanford University in California on a bag series for student life around college, leisure and office. The products are manufactured under the brand name SID & VAIN.

Fashion-conscious and yet sustainable?
The topic of sustainability at myBagFactory runs like a "green thread" throughout the entire company. But we are also fashion and trend conscious. How can this be combined?
Many companies launch cheap fashion products that are not "in" after a few weeks and soon end up in the garbage. Products from our brand lines are made as environmentally friendly and fair as possible. In terms of materials and processing technologies, we attach great importance to high quality and a long service life. In addition, we offer our repair service - "Repair is better than throwing away", as even the best bag and the most sturdy case can get damaged. For us, this also means developing products in such a way, that important parts of their construction are interchangeable and possible defects are easy to repair.
But how can a sustainable leather bag be fashionable at the same time? For us, this is not a contradiction - our design team around NiK Strauss develops beautiful products that are based on the long trend trends and are therefore timeless in fashion. We also do not always dye the products in new trend colours but make sure that we have bags and colours that can be wonderfully combined to the new trend themes. It would be too bad to have to put a nice genuine leather bag in the corner again after the spring because the colour is no longer trendy.
