CRAFTWORK? SIMPLY BETTER FOR BAGS, TOO.

In the sandal workshop you will also find a small fine selection of handmade leather bags and leather belts. The collection was born simply from the joy of working with leather. And much like the sandals, the concept is thoughtful, durable, sustainable bags, with style, with their own touches, but thoroughly suitable for everyday use. Each one is handmade to order. Das heißt: Jede Tasche und jeder Gürtel ist ein Unikat, nichts ist auf schnelle Maschinenfertigung optimiert, die sorgfältige Arbeit ist in jedem Detail sichtbar. Genau darauf, auf die sorgfältige Arbeit, das hochwertige Leder und die Details kommt es uns an. In manchen Fällen können wir sogar besondere Wünsche erfüllen, z.B. bei der Größe des Handyfachs, das wir in unsere Taschen einbauen.

Did we get inspired?? Of course

We can reveal it quietly. We found the models for our bag models for the most part in the forest and on the meadow. More precisely: We have copied some of the hunting equipment. The hunting craft is ancient, and almost every idea you can have when you want to make robust, useful and suitably proportioned bags has been tried out there. Our models 1 and 2 and our gamebag clearly borrow from cartridge bags and transport bags for hunted game. Do our models now remind more of a British cartridge bag or more of a French Sac à Cartouche? It's hard to say, but there are some things we can't make ourselves. We buy good and durable belt buckles, just like our solid screw rivets. Or the beautiful hand-woven ribbons that we sew onto the shoulder straps of our bags. They come from Lithuania and are actually belt bands for traditional country costumes, mostly made of linen and wool. They are not always the same patterns and colors, but that's how it is when you don't do mass production.

CHARAKTERFRAGEN. VON VINTAGE BIS BUNT.

You could definitely call the smooth leather editions from Model 1 to Tote Bag timeless. Or even try it with the label "vintage". We don't mind at all. How quickly the character can change is shown by the suede or nubuck variants in fresh colors and color combinations. Visually, everything is completely different, but the inner values remain the same. A practical layout, always a special compartment for the cell phone, soft goatskin lining, if it should be a little less rustic. And either simple and functional or a little more playful with contour accentuating piping or sewn edges. It's often the small details that make the difference.

NOT TO FORGET: OUR BELTS.

A belt is a simple and everyday thing? True. Or not. It's the everyday things that make a difference in how well they're made. As always, we use only the highest quality leather for our wide belt straps and our braided belts. And especially with braided belts, the care taken in the workmanship makes a real difference. In width, various standard measurements are given by the solid buckles or clasps, which we attach with a resilient hand stitching. The length is, of course, variable.

ADVICE, ORDER, SANDALS

Advice in our workshop. Of course, you can just come to the workshop and get all advice you might need. However, if you want to order a pair of sandals or shoes, we recommend that you make an appointment so that we make sure we have enough time for you. The appointment can also be arranged outside our opening hours (Monday to Friday 3.00 to 6.00 p.m.). Please allow 20 to 30 minutes for normal needs.

Once you have made your decision, we ask you to stand on a so-called foot-impression-box with both feet one after the other. This is a kind of footprint kit that shows us just where you normally put weight on your feet. We also draw the foot outline for both feet.

In the course of this, we also discuss the special requirements you may have for your feet. While we don’t make orthopedic shoes or sandals, and don’t do video or computer analysis of your gait or foot form, we will use our experience and expertise to address special needs.

Need some time: Handmade Sandals & Shoes Once we got your footprints, we can start to make your sandals or shoes. It’s handwork, and we do it on a first-come, first-served basis. We will give you an approximate appointment date for fitting or an estimated date for shipping, respectively. For some models – the ones you can not order online – we need you to visit us for a second appointment to fit the sandal or shoe.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION CONCERNING ONLINE ORDERS

Please note: Shape: The sole and footbed are shaped according to your footprints and therefore may appear slightly different from the pictures in the online catalog. This is not a deficiency. Color: The leather is dyed individually, and your monitor or display can show colors quite differently. The colors are therefore not binding, this is not a deficiency.

1. Make a footprint

Involvement of the buyer: We need your footprints for our bespoke sandals and shoes. When we receive an online order, we will send you a footprint kit and a small enclosed instruction. You must return the footprint kit to us before we can begin to work.

2. Adjust the Straps

When you receive the finished sandals, you need to adjust the straps yourself. Please see Video below. This collaboration is required; it is not a shortcoming and does not justify a price reduction.
