In the same vein of the Gesamtkunstwerk  philosophy of the Wiener Werkst.tte, the expert craftsmen of R. Horn Wien work the finest leather with loving attention to detail and a nod to traditional methods. Making briefcases, wallets, handbags, backpacks and other beautifully crafted pieces, R. Horn boasts handmade designs that enable customers to enjoy their purchases for years to come. Modern and timeless while obeying the law of “form follows function,” R. Horn designs meld beauty with utility. Their first district store also features a repair shop for those pesky nicks and tears.
