From the idea to the finished collection: we do everything here in Basel. I am fascinated by the creative possibilities, using fabrics, leather, colours and prints enabling me to tell stories and therefore create my collection. I receive my inspiration every single day through the small and big events in my immediate surrounding and the many impressions during my travels around the world. My designs are pure, uncomplicated and modern. Referring to current topics I transfer my impressions with a clear standard of design in mind. Every peace develops its own sensuality by interacting with pattern, material and colouring. It is most important to me to produce long living and fair produced products for my clients.

Our innovation is based on a universal understanding of design, classic craftsmanship and attention to detail. Our design culture is the attitude we take as a label towards our customers, partners, employees and producers. We work in such a way that all of the ideas and input of our employees is taken into consideration and implemented within our work and designs.

Since 2001, Tanja Klein creates timeless, feminine clothing collections, leather bags and accessories under the brand ‚kleinbasel by Tanja Klein‘. Custom made of exquisite and natural materials, the modern urban woman will find specific favourite items to wear or use every day or at any event. At kleinbasel by Tanja Klein men will find the desired matching leather bag and got to basics.

The careful selection of materials always respects the high standards of quality. Here traditional craftsmanship, quality and style are combined.

We maintain a long-standing and cooperative partnership with our manufacturers. Small businesses know neither piecework nor wage dumping.
We want to offer a sustainable alternative for clothing and accessories,  which are fairly produced. We stand for short production routes, less environmental pollution and are against social exploitation. We offer local, fairly produced clothes and bags that are made locally and in an environmentally friendly way.

The Lifetime Repair Service for our bags is the repair service we have been offering for kleinbasel bags for a long time. Send us your kleinbasel bag if you would like to have it repaired. We will send you a price quote and your bag will be professionally repaired in the same factory where it was made. 

The kleinbasel by Tanja Klein collection is available in our flagship store in Basel and in other selected boutiques.

We are also happy to offer guided tours of our studio upon request. We offer you, your friends, your club or your company the opportunity to look into our sewing room and take a tour of our store and studio. From 15-20 persons you are welcome to contact us:
