The story of KERBHOLZ begins in 2011.

After Matthias & Moritz had been travelling around Central America for a while they rediscovered their love for wood. Along the way, they continually came across this warm and haptic material: a boat on the beach, a terrace in the jungle or at the artisan markets of the Indians.

The various ways of processing this warm and organic material filled them with enthusiasm and left no room for doubt: wood needs a revival in everyday street style! Once they were back in Germany, they told their friends about their idea. From sleepless nights, blood, sweat and tears, KERBHOLZ finally arose in 2012. From the beginning, KERBHOLZ has stood for wooden glasses and wooden watches of the finest quality, handmade from the most precious woods in the world. KERHOLZ works in a sustainable way without compromising their clean design and quality.

Since 2012, KERBHOLZ  has represented sustainable products you can wear on a daily basis, bridging the gap between a fashion accessory and beautifully designed product. The modest style of the products shines the spotlight on the material with its appealing texture, high value and natural colouring. The use of natural materials makes each KERBHOLZ product unique, with no two products alike.

Where does the name KERBHOLZ come from?

'Kerbholz' is the German word for a tally, originally a medieval form of a promissory note made of wood, into which the lender would carve the amount of debt. KERBHOLZ have interpreted the term to refer to memories you can carve or notch into your wooden product turning the tally into a precious memory.
