linckx.® - behind the brand and the designs of this small Munich-based company, founded in 2005, stands the architect Ute Linck Borys. To design a building, you need to have a special sense for proportions, forms, and space – these skills are of course very useful to the designer for developing her bags and other products. linckx.® offers a wide range of felt products - from bags in every size and shape to smartphone- and tablet sleeve and living accessories. The preferred material is wool felt, but also new materials like a PET felt that is made of recycled plastic bottles.
Developing her products, the designer goes in for a clear design as well as high quality in workmanship and functionality. The sophisticated features of her bags make personal organization as easy as a piece of cake -and everything is 100% “made in Germany”!
like ★ paper bags - On her permanent search for new materials, in spring 2015 Ute Linck Borys found a paper-like water-resistant and washable fabric, composed of cellulose and latex and produced in Germany. With this fascinating material she developed her new Zell.Stoff collection of bags and pouches (since July 2015) that she offers under her second label " like ★ paper bags " (for more information please visit the website www.likepaperbags.de). From tote bag to iPad sleeve – the Zell.Stoff bags are new, intriguing and trendy!
„Made in Germany“ – the company can guarantee that with a clear conscience! The felt products are mainly made by hand in two factories in Saxony, East Germany, while most of the paper products are handcrafted in the Munich studio, as well as the individual screen- and stencil prints that give the products their individual character.
The felt comes from Germany (80%) and Italy (20%), the craft paper is produced in Germany. The ingredients are obtained from producers in Germany, Austria and Italy.
With the production process in Germany we have short communication and transport routes, which also means great flexibility and fast delivery times.
By the short transportation routes we are saving CO². Also we don´t use extra paper or plastic packaging for our single items. For shipping we take used cardboard boxes that we collect from shops nearby, and reapply them as often as possible.
Our products are being manufactured under fair conditions. All persons and companies that are involved in the manufacturing process are paid for their work fairly and adequately. Also with regard to the accessories and parts we are doing our best to ensure this.
Wool felt is so to speak a growing raw material and therefore sustainable. It is water resistant, breathing and keeps you warm! linckx.® uses felts of different qualities, like 100% pure sheep wool felt or mixed wool felt (with min. 90% wool), and felt that is made of recycled plastic bottles (100% PET) – what a good idea for reuse!
Our Zell.Stoff consists of cellulose and latex, and it is produced in Germany. It is solid, tearproof and water resistant, even washable! After manufacturing it hast the paper-like crinkled look, and from use it becomes softer and more leather-like, that is why this material is also called „vegan leather“.
