About

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.

R&B production

The production is based on handmade chemical free design items produced by local designers. All leather is organically tanned meaning free from chrome, metal, formaldehyde, sodium sulphide, glutaraldenhyde and sulphuric acid which are usually found in commercially tanned leathers and tanneries. The natural tanning process takes anywhere from 5 weeks to 12 months whereas regular chrome tanning takes less than a week.

R&B consists of 8 designers and 37 craftsman in Sweden, Lithuania, Poland and India. Average age of designers is 35. Average age of craftsman is 28 and minimum employed age is 22. Average years of experience is 8.
