During an extended stay in Manhattan’s East Village in 1996, Tobias had a thought, “why don’t I make the leather jackets that I see in my favorite pop culture films?” With this in mind, the twenty-something globetrotter returned to his home in Hamburg and turned his idea into a reality.
Self-made and self-taught with an unstoppable spirit and a devil for the details, he sets out on his journey alone, with a foldable road map behind the wheel of one too many cars to create a fashion brand that takes off faster than an old muscle car.
Khujo started with the design of one leather vintage inspired jacket and has grown to a complete collection for women and men. Each season the collection ranges from cutting edge vintage inspired classic reinvented to modern urban contemporary cutting edge designs inspired by the streets of Los Angeles, New York, London, Copenhagen, Berlin and Hong Kong.
Typical of so many big adventure stories, one big adventure begins with one small step forward.
In 2001 Khujo is trademarked and the takes the brand’s first step. What started with one well-crafted rough and ready leather jacket, turns wildfire and fans the flame in fashion and spreads word about Khujo throughout Germany.
