From the Old Days. Provençal Bag

The „carnier“ is the traditional bag used by the country folk of Provençe. Formerly used as a cool bag to keep food and drink fresh for longer periods, it is made of strong, breathable leather. Today, it is used mainly as a hiking bag. Photographers appreciate the bag particularly because of the number of pockets. The larger main compartment may even hold business files and folders. The thick but incredibly supple sheepskin is a variant of the famous bark tanned Moroccan leather.

Protective Garment. EtaProof® Gentlemen’s Parka

EtaProof® Gentlemen’s Parka

EtaProof® is the trade name for the renowned, densely woven cotton canvas cloth from Stotz of Zurich. It’s water-resistant and rain-proof, yet breathable. The cotton comes from organically controlled plantations. Based on the same protective principle as the silk for umbrellas, it’ll keep you dry in all ordinary rain short of monsoon conditions. The cloth, which has been only gently and naturally impregnated, is so densely woven that the fibres swell up on contact with waterm allowing rain-drops simply to drip off.

At Your Service. Big Desk Organizer

Big Desk Organizer

Many of the components of our Big Desk Organizer are necessarily humble and unspectacular – a card index box, a visiting card box, a letter tray for example. The heart of our Organizer is however quite impressive; 27 x 55.5 cm in size it is a container put together on the unit construction principle and holds about anything the busy desk worker needs. The exact needs may of course vary from office to office – but our well-thought-out organizer is up to all the demands that may be made of it with its great variety of boxes and compartments.

Pure New Wool. Black Sheep Aran Pullover

Black Sheep Aran Pullover

This crew neck sweater’s “scent” has no words to describe it. It comes from the lanolin: the ‘wool-wax’ that was used in ancient times for medicinal purposes – the natural oil of the wool, which is left unbleached and non-dyed for this pullover. The Raglan sleeves serve a double function: they make the pullover more pleasant to wear, and at the same time serve to enhance the traditional Aran Isle pattern that runs down the sleeve from neck to cuff. The seams are in 1/1 rib-knit and offer a perfect tailored fit..

Sweeps Clean. Manufactum Goat Hair Dusting Broom

Manufactum goatshair dusting broom

This is a household broom with the old-fashioned ‘Zeppelin’ shape, a head so slim that it can brush out the tightest of corners. The fine, dense goatshair bristle is able to gather an enormous amount of dust, making it especially suitable for dry-brushing wooden, tiled or linoleum floors – where it can do a better job than a vacuum-cleaner. With brass-plated thread to fit our screw-on handles.

French Tradition. Ceramic Latte Bowl

Ceramic Latte Bowl

An earthenware manufacturer from Lothringen going back 250 years produces this coffee bowl. It’s a testimony to their tenacity that they have been able to hold on, with not more than a dozen employees left from 120. The porcelain painters mix the glaze and spray it on the bowls by hand, relying entirely on their sense of proportion. They lay on templates loosely in order to generate a discrete indistinctness in the application of the glaze.

Organizing your Notes. ATOMA

Blank Atoma A5 Notebook

The 60 years old Belgian ATOMA notebook system consists entirely of runaway rings and flighty pages, whereby the rings prevent the pages from flying off and the pages prevent the rings from running away – at any rate, thanks to a patented special perforation the pages can always be easily separated from each other. So you can add, rearrange or combine the various forms from your own notebooks any time you want to, with forms, calendar or addresses you can generate with your PC on the blank forms and then perforate them with the ATOMA hole puncher.

Motor Sports Watch. Sinn's Tachymeter

Sinn Chronograph Tachymeter

Wrist watches with tachymeter scales have been around for some time. They were the classic equipment for the early rally motorists – known in those days as ‘gentlemen drivers’ – who used them to determine their average driving speed. Sinn have designed this chronograph specially for us, with a three-way tachymeter scale built directly on to the dial in spiral form.

From Germany since 1911. Bolich Lights

Bolich Small Copper Outdoor Lamp

The Bolich outdoor lamps of black-coated aluminium are among the most popular of our range, and we’ve been asked again and again if we can’t do them in copper. So we took the request on board and asked Bolich to make this one for us. In shape they resemble their aluminium brethren, but are made of strong copper plate instead – and the metal hasn’t been coated, so the copper will over time build up a characteristically delightful patina. They are – needless to say – made to be used out of doors.

Natural Look and Feel. Gentlemen's Leather Jacket

Gentlemen’s leather jacket

For this leather jacket we use exclusively European cow-hide from ‘happy cows’ – that is, animals that led normal lives and were not specially reared to produce leather. The leather-making process consists, firstly, of mineral tanning, then aniline drum dyeing, followed by natural greasing. This careful process means that the leather is deep dyed, and not e.g. brush-dyed or treated with any other surface process that conceals the natural look and feel of the material.

Sensoboard Trainer

Sensoboard Trainer

The Sensoboard has been shown to be an ideal training method. Standing upright on it requires active compensatory muscle effort encouraged by the board, which gives the impression of a shifting base. The board is equipped with a non-slip covering, and 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.

Landscaping. Garden Décor and Fences

Steel Rod Garden Gate

For home-owners who appreciate good workmanship and design a natural screen can be the perfect alternative to the conventional screening mat available in any chain store.

The Manufactum Ash Tool Stand is a piece of furniture and as such will find room for long and short tools alike using the absolute minimum of space. The three bigger compartments take forks and spades with T- or D-shaped handle ends; the six smaller ones are for ordinary long-handled garden tools.

Classic Model. Leather Briefcase to Defy Wear and Tear

Manufactum Leather Briefcase

The leather we use is of hide cut from the neck – the sturdiest part that the animal needs in order to cope with continual movement and daily strain, and which in turn ensures that the neck hide has a particularly robust texture. Our specialist Westphalian manufacturer uses vegetable-tanned leather from French cows to make these briefcases based on classic models from the 1930s to 1960s. They have two outside front pockets and an adjustable all-round belt. The leather’s deep brown colour comes from the cask-dye process using special fats to keep the surface grain ‘open’ and clearly visible. Manufactum Leather Briefcase


Mühle Sport Gentlemen’s Watch

Mühle Sport Gentlemen’s Watch

You can still get the Sport Automatic Watch from us in its original finish – with the date window at a quarter past. The raised sapphire crystal fits closely on to the bezel. The lozenge-shaped hands are of polished steel and – like the digits – have been coated with a green luminous point. The second hand has been given a luminous dot. The movement is the renowned ETA automatic calibre, and has been slightly modified and regulated in five positions by Mühle to give noticeably improved accuracy.
