We established our opening collection in the early summer of 2001 with the vision to develop a lifestyle brand anchored by creativity, quality tailoring, innovative appliqués and ethical production. With a passion for the work of talented artists and the design community around us, we embraced collaborations to build a creative environment for the brand. Our brand’s studio in Berlin-Friedrichshain, an old cow stable which we restored from ground, is ideally located within a district where the merging of art, progressive design, architecture and fashion is a long established tradition.
Inspired by our friends, the city we call home and the places we choose to travel: The approach we take towards product design demonstrates a bias for simplicity and utility. This journey is anchored by a sincere foundation for quality pieces that are constantly challenged by the theory that you are only as good as your last product. At Ucon Acrobatics we create goods designed to enable your journeys and exploration; bags and backpacks for men and women often with an additional functional aspect. Staying true to our core values during fifteen-plus years in business helped us to create a company we're proud to run and work for. We strongly believe in our idea of innovative, modern, functional and especially minimalistic products for a whole new generation of creative consumers. Our focus on making the best products possible with sophisticated fabrication, technical know-how and open-minded philosophy has brought us to where we are right now.
Thanks for your support and trust in our company.

The meaning of Ucon Acrobatics
Life in the city is something we’ve learnt to embrace. Appreciating the variety: a kaleidoscope of cultures all in one place. It’s the little things that others might pass by in the blink of an eye that keeps us inspired. Daily tasks are adventures to be lived, not problems to be solved. We aspire to move easy. Balancing our everyday whilst challenging our ideas to evolve. Never compromising on quality or our values as individuals.
Ucon Acrobatics. Balance and agility in everyday life.
Herbert Hofmann, Voo Store
„Ucon Acrobatics manage to combine everyday casual styles with contemporary fun fashion pieces! As a buyer I appreciate their realistic way of creating fashion that people love, but still this collective never stops developing and trying new designs. We had the pleasure to release their latest artist edition with creative duo HAW-LIN. It was a popular event showcasing an amazing collection.“
Robot Koch, Produzent, DJ & Artist, Los Angeles/ Berlin
„I’ve been loving Ucon Acrobatics since I discovered them a few years back. I dig their style and rock their pieces both on and off-stage.“
Clemens Poloczek, Creative Director & Fotograf, Founder of iGNANT & Co-founder von Superiest
„I would describe Ucon Acrobatics as an authentic streetfashion brand with contemporary shapes and patterns. What sets them apart from others is definitely their eye for detail and they are always one step ahead of upcoming trends.“
Maren Wiebus, Sales Director SEEK Exhibitions
„Ucon Acrobatics x SEEK is what you call a ‘perfect match’ – let’s say it’s love. It has been simply mandatory to develop a great relationship with these guys and to repeatedly partner up at SEEK. Things we share: Berlin, quality without any compromises, authenticity and obviously a dedication to detail.“
Adina Bier, Curatorial Director Gestalten Verlag
„One of the things I enjoy mostly about design curating is meeting the people behind the designs. Working with Ucon Acrobatics is always a memorable calm, laid-back, and enjoyable process! The first time I left their showroom, I had a smile on my face and an ease, and thought to myself, ‘they are genuine guys making products they genuinely love’. Collaborating with Ucon on the Gestalten x Ucon Acrobatics tote was a seamless enjoyable process. Their simplicity to their designs, forms, and patterns, leave room for the exploration of well-made wear and accessories, and the tote is just that: simple, well made, attractive, and most importantly abundantly useful!“
Fabio J. Raffaeli, Founder „Into the Wild“ Shop & „Flower Distribution
„I first met the guys at the old Bright trade show in Frankfurt and since that day Ucon Acrobatics to me has always been about passion and grace. These guys are just full of these two qualities. They put so much love in small details and the final result is always always amazing because the love for what they do shines thru every single item. We are super proud to be their partners.“
