The Kaehler Scrapbook

We love the Internet. It’s hard to imagine our lives or business without it. Though we would rather get to know you and have you see our products in person, its amazing that someone can visit us anywhere in the world to see and learn about what we do. This concept was unfathomable when our company was founded.

As we embrace the convenience of the new, our minds gravitate towards the old and when we designed kaehler1920.com nostalgia was in the air. Functionally, we wanted the site show our products, share the thought process of how and why materials are chosen and bags are built.

Aesthetically, we used a scrapbook from the late 1920’s as our guide. The book documents the early press of the original Kaehler store and the adventures of company founder, WG Kaehler. This scrapbook serves as the inspiration for not only for this site, but for our company. There’s a comfort in seeing things that have lasted a long time and our goal as a company is do build things that do just that.
