A wide variety of shapes and styles drive the remarkable pipes of the Vauen brand. Back in 1848 the first pipe factory in Germany was launched by Karl Ellenberger and Carl August Ziener. Joined by Gebhard Ott fifty years later the name of the company grew to a bit of a tongue twister eventually giving way to a phonetic abbreviation known as Vauen today. Vauen is credited with being the oldest German pipe company led by generation after generation.
Vauen is not only the oldest of German pipe makers it is also the most popular in all of Germany. This is quite an accomplishment given the higher ratio of pipe smokers in Germany as compared to many other nations. Vauen is an offer of value and innovation that will serve you well.
