A couple of generations ago, the Renck family owned leather and textile factories before a series of fires put a stop to the business. Brand-Fyr picks up where this tradition left off: from an idea for a bag an exclusive accessory brand has emerged. “I started testing the model on my sewing machine at home and wanted to make a couple of bags for some buddies. A bag for everything you need when you leave your front door or go traveling. Computer, wallet, a case for your glasses, your mobile – you always have something to carry around,” says Martin Renck, who has founded Brand-Fyr together with his brother Johan.
