... stands for "Ethical Manufacture for Bags and Accessoires in WOod".

EMBAWO creates for high-quality, handmade handbags made of wood and leather in elegant design, sustainable and innovative. 

Each piece is unique and made by nature. EMBAWO stands for class, clean and harmonious lines and natural design.

EMBAWO was founded in 2009 by Norbert Öttl, a trained carpenter from Merano who has travelled as model the fashion capitals of the world for years.

For Norbert it was and is a great concern to bring the wonderful raw material wood into fashion and to show it to its best advantage. Wood is timelessly beautiful, unique and radiates a special warmth. Wood is also a renewable raw material and thus enables very sustainable production. 

With EMBAWO, Norbert has combined his two passions, craftsmanship and design.

EMBAWO products are mainly made from regional woods in South Tyrol (Italy) with great attention to detail.
