Von Grüning accessories are durable, versatile and are designed to be worn to make a statement in any environment regardless of the season.
Corporate Social Responsibility
As part of our Corporate Social Responsibility, the majority of the leathers used to produce Von Grüning luxury pieces are sustainably sourced as scrap from upholstery companies. Combined with imitation leathers, they are then made into the products you see today. This process significantly helps reduce the amount of leather waste going into landfills. Because of our sourcing method, our quantities are limited and our designs are well thought out.
