We're on a mission to create a more sustainable and joyful world, one accessory at a time. We invite you to join us on our journey and discover our simple, sustainable, and joyful designs.

Simple, timeless, and joyful design

At KURATIST, we believe that good design is simple, timeless, and joyful. Our designs are inspired by the minimalist concepts of global cultures, with a unique German twist. We use high-quality, natural materials, such as cotton, cork, and tech-paper, to create accessories that are both functional and beautiful.

Sustainable and ethical accessories

We're on a mission to create a more sustainable and ethical world, one accessory at a time. We use high-quality, natural materials that are ethically sourced and cruelty-free. We produce in small batches to reduce waste and ship with DHL go green. We're constantly looking for ways to improve our practices, and we hope you'll join us on our journey.

From Hamburg to the world: The KURATIST story

In 2015, Heidi, the German-Thai founder with a strong passion for design, started KURATIST in Hamburg, Germany. She began making her own phone cases after being unable to find one she loved. With the help of her husband Jan, she started selling them at craft fairs. Today, KURATIST is a global brand of handcrafted accessories that are inspired by German minimalism and sustainably produced in Thailand.
