Laauw is a Dutch design label that is founded in 2014 by three young friends with their roots in Waalwijk. The label was born from their passion for the leather craftmanship in their home base Waalwijk. Laauw is inspired by the differences in cultures and characteristics of major cities combined with their love for minimalistic and functional design.
The name “Laauw” is a reference to this love for minimalistic and functional design. Laauw took the challenge to make the urban life more comfortable in an elegant way. Every collection is themed by a major city. By combining the Dutch down to earth mentality with the characteristics of different major cities for each collection, Laauw is creating a global journey.
The home base of Laauw, Waalwijk (southern Netherlands), is famous as the heart of the Dutch leather industry. This region is full of craftsmen who are raised with the passion and love for leather. Laauw tries to continue the honour of crafting leather products, like their grandfathers did, and therefore puts this first at every collection. All the products of Laauw are designed and created in the Netherlands.
Minimalistic, functional, but elegant. That is Laauw
