Tango Pouch Handbag, Evening Bag

The Tango Pouch is an outstanding bag with a truly innovative design. It is a wearable piece of art worn by the wristlet-handle it allows you to have your hands free. Inside is enough space and the folding magnet closure construction gives an unexpected easy and wide opening. The Pouch is made with soft waxed calf skin leather for an incredibly pleasant touch of the handle and puffy side inserts, intentionally contrasting with the more constructed main body made from so-called glazed leather.

Gretchen Berlin stands for highest quality by using the best leathers and fabrics with the most brilliant colors and an incomparable softness. All Gretchen accessories are handcrafted by leather good craftsmen in traditional manufactories in Italy and Spain.


Anne-Christin Schmitt, the creative mind behind the modernist German accessory label Gretchen, grew up surrounded by leather goods of the family manufacture. Her intuitive understanding of design and a lifetime of experience Inspired by sculptural aesthetics and the architecture of nature, her handwriting is marked by feminine straightness and modern angles in distinguished shapes. With a vita so closely interwoven with fine leather goods, Anne- Christins’ understanding of quality in workmanship and luxury in material mirrors in each piece she creates. Eclectic combinations of shiny glazed and waxed calf leathers and elaborate profile elements are signature trademarks of the Gretchen look. The natural texture of these leathers exudes timeless luxury and lets the colorful collections shine. Challenging the conventional Anne-Christin takes on a different angle and gives way to new concepts when designing her bags, purses, gloves and other fine leather items. Gretchen was founded in 2006.
