Castelijn & Beerens

Castelijn & Beerens started out in 1945. Waalwijk then lay in the centre of an area successful in the leather industry and Walter Castelijn, a master stitcher and Marinus Beerens, a leather cutter, met each other in a bar in Waalwijk. A cooperation was forged and hailed the start of the small leather goods company Castelijn & Beerens! The two artisans started their careers as entrepreneurs making belts, handbags, diplomats' folders and school bags. The leftover leather was used to make watchstraps and wallets. The latter product was to become particularly important to the company. At the close of the sixties, Castelijn & Beerens developed the legendary Porto Quick? A wallet with a magnetic pocket which held onto small change. The success of the Porto Quick occasioned Castelijn & Beerens to increase its focus on small leather goods such as wallets, billfolds, key cases, diaries and writing cases.
Over the past few years, A4 bags, attach?cases, ladies bags and travel bags have been added to the range. The Italian leathers used, have also become better and more expensive. The company is changing: the products are becoming more refined and exclusive. And that process continues to this very day.
