We believe in a clean environment.

We believe all environments should be cleaner.


That's why we play basketball

Sustainable and uniquely designed bags

We recycle in a fair way.

Vilnius-born designer Rita Barta has worked in Vienna and Warsaw, and now lives in Cologne. He founded Bal Designs in 2011 and became an ambassador for the EU's environmental campaign "Generation Awake" in 2016.


We source materials from local schools and clubs and reuse old basketballs that would otherwise be thrown away in the garbage. Rough and durable leather is the perfect material for our bags.

Design that transcends time and looks to the future:

Each BAL DESIGNS bag is handmade in Cologne.
