“It’s about inspiration and courage. It’s about having an idea regardless of the risk and taking the next step until it becomes a reality.

It’s been a problem carrying a SLR camera, accessories, laptop and other travel essentials, all in one, in just one bag that is stylish yet functional. We risked putting our gear in a travel bag and always feared damaging our much essential camera body and lenses. We knew there’s a better way and that’s why we initiated Blackforest!

We explored new materials, made several prototypes and field tested for months before we launched our first bag. This is precisely our goal with each new piece and we pursue it passionately. We will continue to craft better ways to carry that help you move effortlessly between your worlds. We hope that our products will make photography a better experience and bring joy to many others around the world.”
