ECO & BOLD
Founded by Zisan Buga and Max Reinhardt in 2018, ZAMT is bold but conscious, contemporary but timeless. Each piece in our collection is created by the best European artisans using eco - friendly premium materials, from carefully selected European suppliers, inspired and centered around our design ideals - bold, eco and able to stand the test of time. We have a background from fashion and architecture and share the love and fascination for beautiful objects - sculptural, tactile, enigmatic in colour & material, unique in terms of pattern or olfactory. Beauty and distinctiveness has plenty of facets and adding to the beauty of the world is what drives us - but we want to do it the right way.
We noticed it was difficult for us to shop the items we longed for as they were not eco, but the eco-friendly products were not desirable thus ZAMT was born.
We aim to create essential pieces that are fair and eco-friendly but do not compromise on style. For us fair production using only eco-friendly materials should be a given - so we really want to win you over by the designs, and not (only) your bad conscience.
Each step of our journey is a testament to our love for nature.
We take full accountability of our production making it an eco-friendly process. Our suppliers and manufacturers are selected with great care, ensuring a non-exploitative environment, fair working conditions and a love for nature and preservation that compliments ours. For a better world and a healthy planet for us and generations to come.
DESIGNED IN BERLIN
The result is conscious, timeless designs created through traditional craftsmanship in Europe that can be loved for far longer to last you a lifetime of fashionable and fair living.
INSPIRATION Ar(t)chitecture is everywhere
We love innovative shapes and smart details, fueled by our inspirations of art and architecture, that are refined and worked into accessories that are essential and unique. Signature curves, robust lines and a clever use of geometric shapes to turn an ultra-graphic world vision into an accessory that is dynamic on all counts.
ECO - FRIENDLY MATERIALS ONLY
MATERIALS - It´s all eco
Our leather comes from a third-generation family-run tannery in Tuscany that has mastered the artisanal process of vegetable tanning using organic tannins for a natural, environment-friendly tanning process. The hides are a by-product of the meat industry and would, if not refined into leather otherwise be disposed of. Our tanneries only use European hides minimizing the negative effects of transport and guaranteeing that the raw materials are not treated with environmentally harming conservatives such as tanning salts used in the chrome tanning process.
PATINA - Ages with you
The surface aesthetics of our leather such as the colors and textures provide a unique look making the natural imperfections of the leather a hallmark of character for the final product.
Vegetable tanned leather is not only an eco-friendly material BUT it also absorbs the traces of life around it, aging beautifully and developing a priceless patina, enduring and lasting for generations.
FAIRLY MADE IN EUROPE
PRODUCTION - The best European Artisans
Our manufacturers are selected with great care, ensuring a non-exploitative environment, fair working conditions and a love for nature and its preservation. Respecting human rights and the abolition of child labor are key.
In Italy our bags are specially made by Paolo, Roberto and their team who have mastered their craftsmanship working for the very best in the luxury leather bag industry since the 70s.

It’s the traditional artisanal craftsmanship, the diligent detailing of each bag, the love and the respect for the material, the drive for creating something by hand that shines through every ZAMT product making it truly special and unique.
