Barcelona is a city that wears many hats: it’s stylish, modern yet historical, business-focused yet relaxed, fashionable, yet not exclusive. It makes sense, then, that a company born right here in the city is creating travel products that incorporate many of these traits. Scharlau is a Barcelona-based company that designs and makes fashionable leather goods, such as briefcases and bags, that make traveling easier. Learn more about this amazing brand and their one-of-a-kind products which are making their mark in Barcelona.
Scharlau is the creation of its namesake and founder, Werner Scharlau. As a young man, he began to manufacture leather goods but soon had to give it up to take over his father’s business. Throughout the next 20 years, Scharlau traveled frequently for business and noticed that many items such as suitcases, briefcases, and bags weren’t of good quality and broke easily. Scharlau decided to put his knowledge of leather goods and traveling to use and to create the perfect items to make your traveling experience both functional and stylish, with a high-quality product. From this idea and passion, Scharlau was born.
