About us
XOUXOU began as a creative macramé project in 2015. It was a grim Berlin winter and company founder Yara Jentzsch Dib was pregnant with her first child. Handcrafts were a welcome distraction, making fabric pieces and wall hangings grow alongside her belly. One of the first XOUXOU pieces was an intricately knotted crib for her firstborn son Pan. A life-long passion for interior, crafts and design made Yara experiment with different kinds of ropes and knotting techniques. Her curiosity in the material, paired with the sudden problem of literally having both hands full with a newborn baby, led to the creation of the XOUXOU smartphone necklace.

What started with handmade products from Berlin is now a thriving and internationally acclaimed fashion tech brand. In December 2018 the 100000th smartphone necklace was sold and there is no decrease in demand. In addition to always improving and developing their product range, XOUXOU will focus on expanding into other markets and fashioning products that allow for more freedom and flexibility - helping you to 
keep your hands free!
