DESIGNERS. CREATIVE MINDS. FAMILY.

One should never have to sacrifice durability for beauty. It takes the time to create something special that will be functional and yet stylish. Cut by cut. Stitch by stitch. Every piece is designed and made with patience and dedication. Each our product is unique and exceptional. Just like a person who wears it.

PHILOSOPHY

Modern world is full of low quality products. Most of them are produced at large factories, where one item is made by number of workers performing specified instructions. Products, thus, become heartless.

Long before the growth of large industries, people barter their skills. Every craftsman was striving to hone his skill to perfection without exploiting others for his work. His heart was behind each peace he created. Our aim is to work with family run supply companies that have great history of manufacturing the finest materials. This gives us pleasure to put our whole soul into designing and crafting products by hand that have meaning, purpose and will become better with time.


MAKING GOODS

 - The life so short, the craft so long to learn - 

Making goods is a process of love. It starts from a blank sheet of paper, grows over the first sketches to the final draft and evolves into the beautiful composition of small details, the prototype. We take hard on it not to overload our products with details. That’s why we scrupulously use them first, piece by piece picking out any flaws and eliminating excesses until we achieve simple, yet elegant design we are proud of.

Each product is crafted by our hands with a help of a single sewing, edge cutting, and stamp machine. It’s hard, but loved. We feel great while cutting the felt, knitting the wool, stroking the leather and adding all the pieces together to something special, not only for us. That makes us one with the goods we create.





   MATERIALS

- It is quality rather than quantity that matters - 

We believe in guaranteed craftsmanship and work exclusively with genuinely selected natural materials. At the moment, there are two: full grain leather sourced from a small tuscan leather tannery and pure wool felt originated from a family run manufacturer in South Germany. Our confidence in the best quality is explained by both: our high standards and your high expectations. Each product is scrupulously tested by wear and tear long before it’s released to the public. We want you to use it with pleasure.

VEGETABLE TANNED ITALIAN LEATHER

Vegetable tanning is a traditional process inherited for generations und used by our small tuscan leather tannery. The tanning process goes slowly in wooden drums in full respect of the environment. Depending on the desired color, natural components such as oak, hemlock, birch are used.

We use full grain leather, which is considered among the best quality leather available. It refers to cow hides that have not been treated significantly. It retains the natural marks of the hide preserving the original fibre strength and durability. Therefore, rather than wearing out the leather develops a beautifully unique patina as it matures.

GERMAN WOOL

We admire wool for its purity. Wool  is one of the oldest materials in the history of mankind. The popularity of the wool is based on the excellent properties. It's breathable, antistatic, water resistant, heat and cold isolating and shock absorbent. We work with a small family run manufacturer in South Germany. They have created a material that is unsurpassed in quality by combining traditional techniques with rare wool types.
