Once upon a time, a group of ridiculously picky people gathered around a table. They had picked their favorite fashion items. To their surprise all items shared distinct attributes such as simple timeless design, high quality ingredients and no logos. On that warm summer night in 2011 Retro&Beans (R&B) was born with the purpose to deliver handmade chemical free design accessories for ridiculously picky people like ourselves. Design accessories includes handmade vintage leather bags, sterling silver or 18k gold jewellery and classic minimalist watches.
During the past years we have been fortunate enough to volunteer and sponsor initiatives such as the Alzheimer foundation. Several magazines e.g. Plaza Magazine and Manolo, have published R&B productions.
