Enthusiasm from the deepest conviction - the ROHLEDER team
The right chemistry as a starting point for a common future
We, Paul Ortner, Philipp Hartl and Julian Aichinger, are the well-rehearsed team behind ROHLEDER and used to go to a chemistry school together in Vienna. As part of the school education, we got to know each other better and also appreciate each other. We realized relatively quickly that the interpersonal chemistry harmonizes extremely well in every respect and is designed for a common future. For this reason, after school, we worked together as a trio for a manufacturer that primarily produces leather for the automotive industry. We were certainly able to gain some experience, but we also realized that mass production with price pressure leads to a severe reduction in quality. Our passion for leather finally led to the decision to go our own way and to develop high-quality and natural leather products ourselves. In particular, individuality and naturalness should be essential components of our creations.
The first development of an emerging leather manufactory
The ROHLEDER leather apron, a fascinating symbiosis of functionality and aesthetics, was our first development and laid the foundation for other unique products. During the development, it was extremely important to us that all natural features, such as individual scars and folds of the cowhide, are always preserved and that each leather apron is unique. We strived to expand and further improve our offer and finally offered personalization of leather aprons. Design and quality remain fundamental components of our work and our developments. In addition, it is important to us that all products are manufactured in Europe.
The combination of different strengths as the secret of success
We work extremely well as a team and complement each other in many ways thanks to individual skills and strengths. Paul Ortner is the creative entrepreneur who constantly develops new ideas and makes the future tangible with visions. Philipp Hartl is the tireless perfectionist who puts his design ideas down on paper, implements them in prototypes and gives numerous thoughts to the product details. Julian Aichinger is the master of numbers, who always keeps an overview, brings things back to earth and pays meticulous attention to the punctual dispatch of all orders. We are united by our passion for leather, quality and individuality.
Our motivation is the satisfaction of our customers
The positive feedback from our customers is motivation, drive and at the same time the basis of our work. Even strong efforts and considerable effort fade into the background and become secondary in the face of the feedback. Sometimes the development of the knife bags and the grill gloves can be traced back to the wishes and suggestions of our customers. Our aim is nothing less than to create the best leather products on the market. We want to offer our customers the best possible shopping experience and the best quality at all times. The ROHLEDER team looks back on an eventful past, lives in a special present with exciting tasks and looks to a future with new developments and the further development of a unique leather manufactory.
