Challenges Body and Mind. Sensoboard Trainer

When you stand on the Sensoboard and alter your position (as you must) even the tiniest amount, you are obliged to make compensatory movements in order to return to normal. In this way, both body and mind are obliged to react flexibly. The board itself is equipped with a non-slip covering. It stands on a football which in principle should force the foot-board to tip over as soon as pressure is applied. However, this is prevented by rubber bands that do their best to return the board to its original position. Shop the Product

Tradition – Revived. 3 Piece Terry Cloth ‘Mining‘ Hand Towels

3 Piece Terry Cloth ‘Mining’ Hand Towels

Nowadays, one would find these robust, durable towels only in a kitchen – rarely in the washhouse of a coal mine. As was the case in the past, today weaving mills manufacture these indestructible terry towels in order to process and manipulate the remains of yarn that exist in the most varied color forms. It is there, in such mills, that these remains frequently accumulate in large quantities – and, in this way, fantastic, colorful designs are generated, with the color composition always varied. The terry cloths are woven in a threaded quality.

Working Shoes. Red Wing's Chelsea Rancher

Red Wing Chelsea Rancher

These are boots to last a lifetime – the longer you wear them, the more you'll like them and the better they'll look. American ranchers always appreciated their hardwearing qualities and used them for work and also for riding. Like all Red Wing footwear, the Chelsea Rancher is made of full-grain leather, oil-tanned and later treated with a special mixture of various waxes and oils. The shoe needs to be given two or three outings before it begins to adapt to your personal foot-shape and to acquire 'give'. But – once broken in, you'll find it unbeatable for support and comfort.

Inside, the bag has a zipper compartment for wallet and papers as well as a pocket for a mobile phone. A sewn-in leather band with carabiner secures the keys. The supple leather warmly hugs the body and is very comfortable to wear. The shoulder strap is length-adjustable.

For Collecting. Gabion Rainwater Barrel

Gabion Rainwater Barrel

This barrel holds the impressive amount of 800 liters of water and should – if the rainwater is supposed to be directly fed into it – be placed in immediate proximity to the downspout. To set it up two mats, made of a zinc-aluminum layered steel wire, are simply joined into circular elements. Combining hooks, made of the same material, provide stability to the structure. The inner ring – for protecting the foil from sharp stones – is lined initially with a thick liner and finally with a stable pond liner, which reliably seals the whole structure. Finally, the middle space, between the inner and outer ring, is filled with stones.

From Brittany. Armor lux Terry Cloth Hooded Jacket for Men

Armor lux Terry Cloth Hooded Jacket for Men

This jacket, with a double processed hood, is extremely comfortable to wear and is especially suited for the summer holidays – with warm weather there is nothing encumbering about it. The neck ring consists of a knitted, tricolored band and the wide cuffs are doubled and made of terry cloth. Terry cloth is voluminous and soft and also, as is the case with this particular fabric, air-permeable and comfortably climatizing, because the material – thanks to its surface increased by looped yarn – absorbs a lot of moisture. As we said: it’s perfect for a warm summer day.

Sturdy, with Thin Sides. Pillivuyt Porcelain Brioche Mold

Pillivuyt Porcelain Brioche Mold

At Pillivuyt, in central France, they have mastered the art of manufacturing a piece of porcelain in such a way that it is unbreakable and extremely stable, with its thin, though very durable sides. This brioche mold is proof – it is used in France to bake the typically round shaped sweet bread which has been known for a long time. In fact, the word Brioche has been in circulation in the French language since the 15th century. Many presume the origin of the sweet bread in Normandy, a region known even then for its high quality of butter – a crucial ingredient.
