About this project
We create classic and timeless pieces made out of the finest materials. MARIN ET MARINE ´s first collection consists of maritime seabags in various sizes and colors. With the combination of simple design and high quality, you'll get a handmade and unique bag, that was made locally with traditional craftsmanship.
Daily inspired by vibrant and colourful Berlin, we also get our creative energy from spending time with our family and friends in France and from our travels throughout the world. With our simple designed products, that are suitable for whatever occasion, we want to go back to the time when you only had few items to carry and which were made with love and dedication. Follow our development on our blog, instagram and Facebook
- FUNCTIONAL: for daily use in urban environment and travels
- MINIMALISTIC: simple, classic, pure
- QUALITY PRODUCT: we only use high quality materials from Germany and produce our bags at local manufacturers with traditional craftsmanship
"A tribute to carefree summer days in Brittany, France" BRIGITTE MAGAZINE
"Forget the It bag - Berlin-based label Marin Et Marine is all about simple design, covetable colourways and bags big enough to fit all the things you need." MISS VOGUE UK
Fair production is one of our greatest demands. To overlook the whole production process, we are only producing in Germany. We collaborate with small and independent manufactures to combine modern design with traditional production. By using those local manufacturers we shorten the production chain and try to reduce environmental pollution.
We receive the organic cotton exclusively from german weaving companies. The leather for our leather bags comes from cows that lived in Europe and is produced in eco friendly tanneries.
We attach great importance to the variety and maintenance of colour. Therefore we fullfill a complex process of dying the cotton, which allows us to obtain unique shades and nuances – the typical MARIN ET MARINE pastel colours. This quality and the arrangement of material is just as important to us as the refined combination of fabric, colour and shape.
We are twins and the design team behind the brand MARIN ET MARINE.

If you focus on the essential you should never forget the MOST essential: the world in which we are living and the people living with us. So making products should be done with passion and love - on the one hand to create long lasting pieces and on the other hand to preserve our environment.
We founded MARIN ET MARINE two years ago and achieved our self-employment – without any financial help from others. But now it´s time to take the chance getting supported by you to continue producing. With your contribution you will help a young and upcoming brand to sustain itself.
- ...if you value long lasting quality and simple design.
- ...if a fair and transparent production is of high importance to you.
- ...if you love travelling just as much as we do and if you are looking for the perfect travel companion.
Your support will help us to buy new materials and to continue producing. Currently we are working on expanding our range of products with new designs. Besides you would help us to enlarge MARIN ET MARINE´s collection with new shapes, special materials and custom-designed colours.
Every extra cent would help us to continue refining our designs, get new materials and improve the possibilities for fulflling the thought of a fair and economic production.
By choosing a reward you only select the size of your BAG MARIN. But no worries, we will ask you for your choice of colour after we have reached our goal. Because of your support.
Help us by sharing MARIN ET MARINE with your friends! Thank you!
Since we reached the 100% after one week, we are now starting to plan the production. YEAH!
Help us now to achieve our new goal of 200%. We are ready!
We are extremely grateful for any help in spreading the word. So please, keep sharing our story with your friends. Thanks to all of you who are making this happen!
Risks and challenges
You are guaranteed to get the product as quick as it´s possible. All logistic matters are well constructed and planned carefully. As experienced people in this business, we know which difficulties could occur and how to tackle them professionally - together with experts in which we trust.
We fulfill a complex process of dying our products. So don´t be surprised about little variations of colour. That is what it makes our bags unique.
During the campaign we will communicate openly on Kickstarter and keep you updated on facebook.
We are ready to produce and deliver your bag as soon as possible. Join us. Tell your friends about us. And last but not least: thanks for your support!
