Longlisted for emerging designer of the year at Dezeen Awards 2020, Burggrafburggraf is a design studio founded by sisters Elena and Nicola Burggraf in 2017.

Burggrafburggraf is a German design studio for bags and accessories with a focus on plant-based materials. The duo's minimalist approach to bag design results in a collection of sophisticated pieces beyond season.

Convinced by the potential of vegan leather alternatives, the studio's materials of choice come from the skin of trees rather than the skin of animals. Their decision of being both – designers and makers – leads to a collection of carefully designed and precisely handcrafted items.

Burggrafburggraf has been longlisted in the emerging designer of the year category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
