Products I Love: Berba Bags & Limango

by farrah on August 23, 2014 · 2 comments

A while ago I posted an Instagram of a bag that I bought from a local shop in Oisterwijk. This shop’s owner told me the story of how her father used to work for the man who started the company that made these bags, and now it’s run by his two sons. I liked that story, loved the bag, and went on my merry little way.

The first Berba products were created in 1974 at a location near the city of Maastricht in South Limburg in the Netherlands. The name Berba soon became synonymous with unique, characteristic designs and outstanding quality. Since 2010, brothers Berry and Tim Kuckelkorn have formed the second generation in this family-run company, bringing together traditions and the very latest developments in the field of fashion and types of leather. The fact that all samples are still produced by hand demonstrates that traditional craftsmanship is a priority within the Limburg family business.

Last week I told you about Limango, which is similar to Zulily here in the NL. The site is easy to use, THEY TAKE PAYPAL! and have great offers. **I do not work for them, I am not being compensated by them, I do not have a relationship with them!* BUT….. I just noticed that they’re offering Berba bags today! Holy cats. Jump on these. Great prices (no, really), and the quality is exceptional. Besides- it’s really nice to have something locally made, right?

And as stated, I have absolutely no relationship with either company, but I do have a link since you need to join Limango to buy something. You can use mine, or not. My feelings will not be hurt. I get €10 or something with anyone who signs up using my link is all. Their shipping was quick, and I see stuff on there all the time that I want. This may or may not be a good thing.

So that’s it. Happy shopping!
