Leonie Risch opens her first Pop Up Shop in Switzerland together with her godfather Dominik Risch from Risch-Shoes.

Risch is a traditional, family owned shoemaker and leather goods trader with its roots in Liechtenstein. Dominik Risch’s grandfather, Leonie Risch's great-grandfather, founded the shoemaking workshop, which became the leading shoe retailer in Liechtenstein. Now its third generation, Dominik Risch with RISCH SHOES, and its fourth generation, Leonie Risch with the handbag label LEONIE RISCH, join efforts with their shared values in order to continue the family business under the name Risch.

LEONIE RISCH, founded in 2018, is the successful handbag label from Leonie Risch. At Leonie Risch, craftsmanship and environmental friendliness are the focus. She uses recycled and upcycled materials and produces within Switzerland. A transparent tracking system shows the whole supply chain for each product. The handbags are produced in a limited quantity. Leonie Risch is stocked at department stores and boutiques like Jelmoli and Grieder in Geneva, Lausanne, Basel, Lucerne, Zurich, Bern and Liechtenstein. Leonie Risch creates future heirlooms that are honest, long-lasting and down-to-earth. 

RISCH SHOES is the well-established Swiss Label which combines modern technology with traditional leather craftsmanship. Thanks to the latest 3D Scan technology, a personal Foot-DNA is created which enables a lifelong fit guarantee and convenient online shopping. Every shoe has the perfect fit. Designed in Zurich and handmade in Tuscany, the precious materials are designed in over 100 steps by the masters of the craft.

Open from the 1st of September at Aarbergergasse 1, directly at Waisenhausplatz in Bern.
