Our founder Johanna Bartsch has always been a forward thinking personality with a big heart for animals, natural remedies and beautiful design. To be able to change the systems, it was clear to her that she needed to play an active part.
The brand 1331 was founded 2018, in Berlin, Germany.
From the outset it was clear to build a sustainable, fair and vegan friendly company. Sourcing the best ingredients & manufactures to keep artisan workmanship alive and create products of outstanding beauty and depth.
The name 1331 is built on the concept of numerology, where all the numbers and letters are added together. In this case equals to a number 8. The number 8 has always been an important figure in her life and therefore it was clear to be included in her heart project.
We believe in the equality of all genders, the beauty of nature and respect to our animal friends. We believe in empowerment rather than restrictions and this is how we do it.
Our core brand values of 1331 are: Design, quality and sustainability.
As we think all three belong together and support one another to create the product we desire to bring into this world.
We create better alternatives and no substitutes.
All our products are sustainable and vegan friendly. We rethink the meaning of quality by setting new standards. We develop each item with the potential to become your favourite.
We don’t spend all our money on marketing and middleman. We rather focus on our products and efficient structures. Our aim is to offer affordable products whilst maintaining an outstanding quality.
If we can change the world with the products we buy, let’s use this power wisely and invest in a new and better future.
