Directions to Lapàporter
When you enter Lapàporter for the first time you may be surprised to see that half of the space is filled with sewing machines, cutting boards, and leather swatches as well as the expected bags and cases on display. All products which you see in the store, as well as online and in stockists around the world, are produced by hand in this very space. It is rare these days to have such direct access and connection to a product's origin and it is an eye opening experience to be able to talk with designer Ilka Brand and watch her at work.
Lapáporter's products are elegant and luxurious, crafted from a variety of different leathers with on soft leathers like lamb, suede, python and even salmon leather, a unique and relatively new leather praised for its distinctive look as well is its durability and environmental benefits. The bags and cases are designed to meld function and beauty and to emulate the feel and look of a beautiful leather handbag.
Given that everything is handmade using only high quality materials, Lapàporter's products are, surprisingly, very reasonably priced. Costing between 60 € and 140 € for an iPhone case depending on material, this makes a wonderful and unique souvenir of your trip to Berlin, one that you will use daily which will develop and tell a story as the leather ages.
Lapàporter is located on Brunnenstraße in Wedding, just a short walk from the amazing Berlin Wall Memorial on Bernauerstraße and is definitely worth a detour if you are visiting the memorial.
We recommend heading to their Berlin studio and retail space while you are in Berlin, but if you are looking to do some online shopping, head to their website (link above) where they have an online shop with worldwide shipping, as well as a list of global stockists.
