30 years ago, my father gave me a travelling bag made of natural leather BO 14. I still carry it today and really appreciate objects that accompany us and grow close to our hearts over time. We call this phenomenon beloved objects, after the book of the same name by Tilman Habermas. Beloved objects not only have great personal significance, but in my view they can also make an important contribution to sustainability and future consumption. We have put together a selection and their stories here. Yours, Philipp Bree
