Ucon established their opening collection in the early summer of 2001 with the vision to develop a lifestyle brand anchored by creativity, quality tailoring, innovative appliqués and ethical production. With a passion for the work of talented artists and the design community around them, they embraced collaborations to build a creative environment for the brand. The brand’s studio in Berlin-Friedrichshain, an old cow stable which they restored from ground, is ideally located within a district where the merging of art, progressive design, architecture and fashion is a long established tradition.
Inspired by their friends, the city they call home and the places they choose to travel: The approach Ucon takes towards product design demonstrates a bias for simplicity and utility. This journey is anchored by a sincere foundation for quality pieces that are constantly challenged by the theory that you are only as good as your last product. At Ucon Acrobatics they create goods designed to enable your journeys and exploration; bags and backpacks for men and women often with an additional functional aspect. Staying true to their core values during fifteen-plus years in business helped them to create a company they're proud to run and work for. They strongly believe in their idea of innovative, modern, functional and especially minimalistic products for a whole new generation of creative consumers. Their focus on making the best products possible with sophisticated fabrication, technical know-how and open-minded philosophy has brought them to where they are right now.
