The face behind the brand Gretchen is Anne-Christin Schmitt. Simultaneously she is the creative mind, who realizes her own vision of an innovative, timeless Accessory line from her design studio in Berlin Kreuzberg.
Her growing up with a family owned leather manufactory shows in each and every Gretchen design. So does her life-long experience with leather goods, the knowledge when it comes to traditional craftsmanship and the values of finest leathers. Anne-Christin’s intuitive understanding for designs is mirrored in her differentiated bag creations. Inspired by sculptural esthetics her drafts are all about straightforwardness and the modern language of shapes. Challenging the conventional Gretchen accessories convince throughout new ideas that pay homage to the modern woman, who purposefully seeks the certain something.
