Founded by Julie Habermeyer and Florian Kibbel from a shared passion for flowers, design and durable high performing products, Chop Chop Bloom is a realisation of their common dream.

They wanted the magic of gardening to be reflected in their tools. Quality and aesthetics should go hand in hand. With this goal in mind, they began their journey and reached out to local experts to produce durable, colourful, and timeless garden shears and accessories.

The Chop Chop Bloom shears have a slim, short blade ideal for urban gardening and beyond.
Their lightweight and compact size make them ideal for carrying around for pruning work. They lie comfortably in the hand due to the leather and ergonomically shaped handles.  

Chop Chop Bloom belongs to the anvil garden shears family. Special features include:

• at least one million cuts due to its unique internal leaf spring

• cuts branches, twigs and dead heads up to a diameter of 16 mm

• efficient transmission of cutting force, less effort required for cutting

• perfect for both left and right handed people

Materials and care
The calf leather used for Chop Chop Bloom’s handles is vegetable tanned. Due to the careful tanning process and the natural tannins, vegetable tanned leather develops a rich and beautiful patina, improving with age and use. It doesn't crack or dry out and thus has a very long lifespan. When leather handles get dirty, clean with a soft, damp cloth. Occasionally, a little leather wax worked into the leather will keep the leather happy!

At Chop Chop Bloom, we aim to be as sustainable and ethical as possible and we want to take you along every step of the way. Chop Chop Bloom shears are 100% made in Germany.

“Sustainability and social responsibility are an essential part of Chop Chop Bloom’s aesthetic.” - Julie, Co-Founder

For this reason, we select our partners with the greatest possible care:

Chop Chop Bloom shears originate from one of the oldest family businesses in Kiel, Schleswig-Holstein, which has developed industrial garden shears with the utmost expertise since 1923. Chop Chop Bloom shears cut at least one million times due to their perfectly engineered cutting mechanisms and thus endure for a lifetime.

“Sustainability means for us to engage with our partners in such a way that we get to the core of their values. We want to know all about their supply chain and their human resources.” - Florian, Co-Founder

Our partner Ulrich Czerny from Lichtenau, Germany, is in charge of our hand-sewn leather handles. To him, the contrast between hand sewing and machine sewing is the equivalent of that between a computer printout and a handwritten letter. Czerny has received numerous awards for his work, including the Bochum Design Prize, the Saarland State Prize for Design and the Hessian State Prize for German Arts and Crafts. Czerny has trained up apprentices over many years, and it is these crafts people who contribute to Chop Chop Bloom’s hand-sewn leather handles.
