“Abeille” glassware

from La Rochère

The La Rochère glassware stems from

one of the oldest glass manufacturers in

France and the oldest one which is still

in production today. This thick and

sturdy glass series bears the heraldic

animal of the Bonaparte dynasty: the

bee. These glasses are hand-blown in

a wooden form. The thin edge which

results from this process is not a

mistake; it is indeed a characteristic of

Antoine: hand-blown crystal glass

The glasses in the “Antoine“ series assume the

old French style of glass, which is otherwise

only found in antique shops. The hand-blown

crystal glasses are shaped by hand. Crystal glass

contains at least 10% lead oxide which gives it

a particularly polished surface as well as high

light refraction.

with the elaborate faceting carried out by hand at the end of the manufacturing

process. As regards materials used and sizes, the glasses are identical to the

glasses without faceting.

American glasses from Anchor Hocking

New Orleans, the city of jazz and Mardi Gras, was the inspiration for this range

of glassware, which in America is almost as popular as a trip to the southern

states heartland. Like most glasses from Anchor Hocking, this glass is "rim-tempered".

By targeted heating and cooling, the rim, which in every glass is the

most fragile part, is additionally toughened, so that the life of the glass is considerably

prolonged. From Ohio, USA.

Kwarx®: practically unbreakable

Through extensive research, Kwarx® was developed as a new material for

making glasses for top-quality restaurants. It is said to be extremely resilient

and does not cloud up even after several hundred washes in a dishwasher. In

addition, it is said to be as clear and shiny as cut glass and completely colourless,

so it does not detract from the colour of the wine. In collaboration with

the Union de la Sommellerie Française, Kwarx® was developed and demonstrated

all these qualities. Its resilience is striking.

oxidation of the wine; it should remain drinkable

for around a week. Height 11 cm.

Decanting Wine

There are two reasons why red wine should be “decanted”. Apart from removing

unwanted sediment, wine is decanted to introduce oxygen so the flavour

can develop and it is ready to drink. This is achieved by pouring the wine into a

decanter, but the process can be speeded up by using a decanting attachment.

9 Decanter from France

Hand-blown by La Rochère, the oldest French glass manufacturer. Fully rounded

form to create the greatest contact between red wine and air. If the contents

of a standard size bottle of red wine are poured in, the decanter will be

half full, with maximum surface area in contact with the air. Height 23 cm, diameter

22 cm, volume 0.75 ml. Weight 1 kg.

item no. 101933 £ 88.00

for a very stable structure, even if a large number of “storeys” are placed on top of

one another.

Clips are needed to attach one module to another. Each packet contains 5 clips. To

attach to the adjacent 12-bottle rack 3 clips are needed, 5 clips for 30-bottle rack,

and 8 for 72-bottle rack. The clips also create extra storage space between the racks.

item no. 101441 £ 9.99 for 5 clips

4 Decanting Funnel

item no. 101868 £ 11.90

5 Decanting Attachment

The device narrows like an hourglass, speeding up the

wine and creating a vacuum which draws air into the

tube, so oxidising the wine. This also makes it possible

steel and rubber. Length 9.5 cm, diameter 3 cm, weight

5 Servicio Serving Trolley

This serving trolley is a typical example of Bauhaus design in the 1920s and

1930s and the increasingly popular classic modern of the time. The light,

chrome-plated steel-tube construction provides two tray areas in black

ashwood veneer, each surrounded with a rail – so lots of mobile stacking space.

Height 95 cm, width 80 cm, depth 36 cm, weight 14 kg. The appearance of the

serving trolley goes back to a design from 1934 by the firm L & C Arnold in

Stendal. Due to its close proximity to Dessau's Bauhaus, this firm was one of the

most experimental partners for the organisers there in the 1920s and 1930s.

The trolley is still manufactured by L & C in Stendal today.

1 “Lampe Berger” Scented Lamp

The Lampe Berger gets rid of bad odours instead of covering them up. Its principle,

based on a catalytic combustion process, was invented by the Frenchman

Maurice Berger in 1898. The catalytic combustion of alcohol is burning without

a flame. It is made possible via a catalytic layer on the burner. The burner

itself is made up of two heating zones: the outer part reaches a temperature

of more than 500 °C to purify the air in the room by getting rid of unpleasant

odours, amongst other things. The odour molecules in the atmosphere which

float past the burner are destroyed via cracking and catalytic oxidation. The

inner part of the burner is only heated to 200 °C and is – if the lamp liquid is

scented – responsible for scenting the room. This lower temperature makes

it possible for the scent to be released and finely distributed in the air.

3 Armenian Paper: Deodoriser from the 19th Century

For over 125 years, paper soaked in styrax, an Asian amber, has been used to neutralise

food and tobacco smells or other unpleasant odours. The Frenchman Auguste

Poncet brought the amber, which is also used in the preparation of frankincense and

has a similar smell, back with him from a journey to Armenia. The paper comes in

booklets of 12 sheets with 3 strips each. Each strip is placed on an ashtray, lit and put

out again, so that it slowly burns away.

1 Sterling Silver Toast Rack

Toast racks like this one are well-known from the elegant breakfast tables of

the 19th and early 20th centuries: hot slices of toast remained deliciously crisp

as they slowly cooled, instead of going soggy in bread baskets or bowls. Over

time, toasters moved ever closer to the breakfast table, which meant that toast

racks became rare and are now nearly always silver-plated or only available for

a high price at antiques dealers. On the breakfast table, however, they are still

useful and decorative. Made in Italy from sterling silver. Holds up to 6 slices of

toast. Height 12 cm, width 9 cm, length 13.5 cm. Weight 240 g.

Dundee, located in the middle of a large fruit-growing area (famous for soft

made over 200 years ago, using Seville oranges. The oranges were too bitter to

eat but turned out to be very tasty after boiling the fruit and so marmalade

was “invented”, to the joy of marmalade fans. Made to traditional recipes

using top quality fruits. The fruits are boiled slowly in open copper pans to preserve

Mother of pearl comes from the lining of large shells in the South Pacific.

Apart from its fascinating pearly iridescent look, the advantage of using

mother of pearl for making spoons is that, like horn, it does not affect the

taste when coming into contact with eggs or caviar. In addition this cool,

heavy material is always pleasant to the touch.

“Brasserie” by Pillivuyt

For almost 200 years, Pillivuyt has been producing porcelain whose robustness and

heat resistance have led it to become internationally known as simply the best

French restaurant chinaware. The robustness of the products is the result of a special

firing process: in the first stage, all parts are shaped and then pre-fired at

approx. 1000 °C; next, they are glazed and fired a second time at more than 1400

°C to obtain a very hard, scratch-resistant surface and a pure, deep white. After the

decoration has been applied, they are fired again at approx. 1000 °C, which seals it

into the glaze and makes it virtually indestructible – and, of course, dishwasher

safe. The individual parts are in the kiln for more than 30 hours in total.





The Brasserie range has been one of the classics of the French catering trade

since the 1920s. Every bistro, brasserie and restaurant could have its menu fired

on to its own crockery. Today's version features the menu from the fictitious

“Grande Brasserie Nationale, 33 Rue de la République - Consommation de

Premier Choix“ – cover charge is 10 centimes, bread included. The wine list

ranges from 1 to 6 francs, while food can be bought from 20 centimes.

"Pronto" tableware

from KAHLA

This tableware is a true classic without

any traces of yesteryear. The wellknown

simple style is available in

seven colours. You can order everything

in one colour, or be more daring

and mix and match. The Kahla chinaware

factory is located in the German

town in Thuringia bearing the same

name, and can look back on over

150 years of tradition.

Kahla manufactures kaolin hard porcelain which

has a slight blueish white glaze compared to the

renowned bone china which stems predominantly

from England with its slight yellowish

tone. As kaolin porcelain is fired at 1400 °C

(bone china is fired at around 1200 °C) it is particularly

tough and hard-wearing.

It is also worth noting that Kahla undertakes the

decorating firing at 1100 °C (this is usually done

at around 800 ° C), meaning that the colour

assumest a permanent bond with the glaze. The

dishwasher safe (red: dishwasher suitable)

Pronto tableware comes from the hotel porcelain

division of Kahla. Here a thicker body is produced

which is especially shock-proof and the

material thickness is able to sustain heat longer

than thinner chinaware.

cutlery with handles made of coloured acrylic.

There is a significant difference as regards the

quality of the metal anchoring, the synthetic

material used and the surface finish. This Sabre

cutlery, in a classic and timeless design, has also

passed our “tried and trusted” test. It is dishwasher

safe. The metal parts are made of stainless

steel, and the knives will remain permanently

sharp. The cutlery items are virtually

6 Denby Teapot – Never Drip

The design of the legendary classic Denby teapot was patented in England in 1922.

The Denby teapot was already a must at tea parties in the Roaring Twenties.

However, it became known everywhere as the “never drip” teapot because of its

unique spout. The spout was designed “to pour with commendable straightforwardness”

which is taken from an advertising text dating back to the 20s.

Nevertheless, what makes it even more special is the fact that not a single droplet

of tea drips from the spout! Capacity 1.4 l. Diameter 15 cm, length (from spout to

handle) 24.5 cm, height 11 cm, weight 825g.

1 Borosilicate Glass Tea Service

Glass is well suited for vessels which come into

contact with tea, as the smooth non-porous

surface can be easily cleaned. Brosilicate glass,

which is mainly used in laboratories with their

equivalent high demands, is extremely heatresistant,

dishwasher and microwave safe and

highly shock-proof. The tea is put into a glass

sieve which is taken out of the pot as soon as

the tea has infused. It is enchanting to see the

colour of the tea spread in the water through

the glass.

5 Cosy Teapot

Cosy teapots have been associated with the Dutch-based company located in

Hilversum, Bredemeijer, ever since 1914. They are manufactured using high-quality

earthenware and have a polished stainless steel jacket with a felt lining. This doublewalled

insulation means that tea stays hot in the pot for around one hour. As the

tea is not continually heated up, as is the case with a tea warmer, the taste stays the

same. As the inside of the teapot is glazed, the Cosy teapot is ideal for black, green

or fruit teas. For cleaning purposes, it is possible to take out the inside of the teapot.

The teapot interior, feet and other spare parts are also sold separately. Capacity

Mechanical Coffee Grinder by Peugeot

Freshly ground coffee always tastes that bit better. The multitude of aromas

found in coffee remain intact, allowing each one to slowly unfold. A grinder

is only as good as the mechanism inside it. After all, it determines how precisely

and evenly the roasted coffee beans turn into aromatic ground coffee or

espresso. Peugeot has been manufacturing coffee grinders ever since 1840, and

is very well-known for the quality of its grinders, especially in the trade. The

carbon steel blade in the grinder preserves the aroma and produces a fine powder

with a coffee aroma which is impossible to resist. The coffee bean is not

heated up in the process and all the flavouring unfolds. The casing is made of

solid wood with a brass or chrome-plated brass crank handle and funnel.

Peugeot gives a 20-year guarantee on the grinding mechanism. Height: 22 cm,

size 13 x 13 cm, weight 930 g.

Le Jacquard Tea Towels

Le Jacquard Français weaving mill is one of the leading

manufacturers of high-quality fabrics in France. It was

founded in 1888 in Gérardmer in the Vosges – the area

surrounding Gérardmer has been one of the most

important areas for growing flax for centuries, as well

as weaving high-quality linen and cotton fabrics.

Jacquard or damask, which was named after this mill, is

a fabric which has the pattern woven into it. In this way,

complex patterns can be made in the weave, without

having to print the fabric – what's more, the play of

light on the pattern varies its intensity and dynamic

appearance, which has made damask very popular in

Europe from time immemorial. Woven from 100%

cotton, washable to 60 °C. 60 x 80 cm.

Copper Pots and Pans from Mauviel

When it comes to heat conduction and heat distribution,

copper outweighs steel with the same

material thickness by a long shot. Hence it is the

ideal material for manufacturing pots and pans.

In their top product line, Mauviel manufactures

pots and pans with an inner stainless steel coating

rather than the widely accepted tin which is

prone to scratches and sensitive to heat. These

combine the advantages of steel and copper

pans. The result: optimal heat conduction, and

the inside of the pan is hard-wearing and yet

easy to clean. The material thickness is 2.5 mm

(0.1"). The handles are made of cast iron. This

family-owned company based in Normandy,

France, has been around since 1830 and is wellknown

among professionals and dedicated

hobby cooks for its high quality.

Cast-Iron Pans from Skeppshult

The rough and untreated surface of a cast-iron pan is ideal for browning or

frying. Our No. 1 choice for steaks. Due to the pans’ thickness (5.5 mm/0.2”)

cast iron is very good for an even distribution of heat as well as heat retention,

meaning that these pans are also ideal for slow cooking. Skeppshult from

Sweden uses sand moulds to form the cast iron pans before deburring them.

The base is then lathed so that the pans rest perfectly on top of the hob.

Suitable for all cooker types. These pans are not rustproof! Do not wash up

using detergent. Simply wash out using warm water. Then dry as normal and

rub in cooking oil periodically.

means that you can also store the prepared salad afterwards. Stainless steel lid

food rather than shredding it. The blades

remain sharp. Stainless steel with non-slip pad

on end for grating ease. Length 33 cm, width

The special thing about this parmesan grater is its rotating drum: it’s not made up

of a metal roller with holes punched in, as is common with other products, but a thin

steel sheet which has tiny blades cut into it in a chemical process. The result is

gloriously powdery parmesan. The grater can also be used to grate chocolate. It can

be completely taken apart for cleaning and is dishwasher safe. The handle and lever

have a non-slip layer; the rest of the device is finished in satinised polycarbonate.

5 Royal VKB Garlic Crusher

Conventional garlic presses press out the garlic. The

remainder, with its juice extracted, stays in the press

and is usually discarded. The garlic crusher crushes the

garlic with a simple rolling motion. Crushed in this

way, the garlic develops a particularly intense flavour.

The garlic crusher can then be washed under running

water. As it is made entirely of stainless steel, it works

like stainless steel soap and removes garlic odour

from the hands. Diameter 3.6 cm, width 18 cm,

weight 300 g.

KAI Shun Damascus Steel Knives

High-quality Japanese knives are harder than

similar European ones and can therefore be

ground to a more acute angle. For this reason,

the Japanese knives are also thinner. Because

they are thinner and ground to a smaller angle,

they glide easily through produce. Damascus

steel is forged in several layers laid over one

another. The various layers are can be seen in

the finished blade as a type of grain. This production

method is not for decorative purposes.

The outer, softer layers are forged around a

particularly hard centre and the finished blade

is therefore flexible and suitable for all purposes.

These kitchen knives from the Shun range

by the leading Japanese cutler KAI are made

from Damascus steel with 32 layers. The inner

layer is made of V-Gold-10 steel. This steel is

extremely resistant to corrosion, very hard (61±

1 HRC, 1.0% carbon, 1.5% cobalt) and makes

the blade uniquely sharp and retains the sharpness

of the blade. Every knife is hand-ground.

The techniques used come from the Japanese

Samurai art of sword making. The handles are

made from laminated Pakka wood with a light

cross section for a safe grip. The blade is anchored

within the handle along its whole

length, which allows for a high level of stability

and control when cutting.

1 Margrete Bowl

A design classic from Denmark

These mixing bowls were designed in 1950 by

industrial designer Sigvard Bernadotte, the

uncle of the Danish queen Margrethe, and the

architect Acton Bjørn. Melamine receptacles

from Rosti enjoyed great popularity from the

50s to the 70s and today are considered

modern classics. The Museum of Modern Art in

New York has examples in its permanent collection.

In 1997, the Danish post office brought

out a stamp in honour of the Margrethe bowls.

Melamine is a plastic made of cellulose and

rock flour. The bowls have a non-slip rubber

ring on the underside.

the square shape and the slight indent in the lid, the containers can be stored

efficiently in the refrigerator. Stainless steel. Made in Italy.

Solid brass products from Lower Saxony

The following solid brass products are produced in a small metal workshop

that still practises its craft according to traditional methods. A metal spinner

creates all sorts of round and hollow shapes out of a flat metal disc. A girdler

then presses, chases, solders and polishes the metal. None of the products

made for us are coated with a protective lacquer. Although this gives a degree

of protection against oxidation with time and use, this cracks and flakes off,

so the surface gets scratched and becomes dirty and unsightly because the the

brass tarnishes in these spots and is difficult to properly clean or polish.

Without the lacquer, the brass simply develops a lovely patina and can be

polished to a high shine if you want.

Whistles, who have more than 70 years of experience in the field. This model

A German original, steeped in tradition: the "Feuerhand" storm lantern, which was

used to keep construction sites safe up until the 1970s, now provides a pleasant glow

in rooms and gardens. Since 1902, nothing has changed in their manufacturing process.

The Feuerhand has nothing in common with the numerous cheap replicas. The

hold. The Schott Suprax glass is resistant to high temperatures. All parts are tin-coated

and thus rustproof (although the Feuerhand should not be constantly exposed to

wind and water). Height 25.5 cm, weight 530 g, volume 340 ccm, lasts 20 hours.

autumn and the winter as well – for example,

when taking a break from raking up leaves, at

the edge of a skating rink or when drinking

punch. Even after the fire has gone, the bowl

Garden Torches

The lamp bodies of our torches are made of

solid polished copper. Since the copper is

untreated, the metal acquires a patina unless

you polish the copper from to time. The wicks

are of fibreglass and thus weatherproof and

practically do not wear at all. The 3 cm thick

shafts are made of hardwood from managed

forestry plantations and thus are very durable

even in damp conditions.

Rose Globes

Decorating the garden with rose or garden globes of

glass is a tradition dating back many centuries. This

custom has experienced a renaissance in recent years.

Rose globes can now be found in the magnificent gardens

of large houses or on the balconies of city apartments.

The characteristics of good-quality rose globes are

high durability of the metal reflective coating, a metal

reflective coating that is completely opaque even in

bright light and ends that have been rounded off by

melting over instead of having a raw sawn surface where

they were cut. Diameter 15 cm, (globes), 12 cm (frogs)

and 21 cm (sun). Hand-blown in the Thuringian Forest.

Thermo-treated ash:

Products made from oiled thermo ash have a

huge advantage over natural wood products in

terms of their high moisture resistance, which

makes them ideal for use in damp rooms and in

the open air. The ash wood, which is already

very strong by nature, is heated over a period of

up to 48 hours in the absence of oxygen to temperatures

between 180 and 220 °C – the initial

slight smoky aroma goes away over time. This

reduces swelling and shrinking of the wood,

while increasing its rigidity and resistance to

decay. The main advantage of this treatment,

however, is that water absorption is greatly

reduced, which means that thermowood products

do not become saturated after being in

contact with water for a long time, which is normally

only guaranteed with tropical woods such

as teak or bangkirai. Compared to using tropical

woods, products made from thermowood are

completely harmless from an ecological perspective.

The dark colour comes about as a

result of the thermal treatment, which eliminates

the need for staining – bleaching caused by

sunlight is still possible, however.

1 Pears Transparent Soap

In 1807 Andrew Pears, who owned a barber shop in Soho, was conducting

experiments to find a soap that was more skin-friendly than other contemporary

soaps. After a series of attempts he met with success and created a soap out

of pure glycerine and natural oils that set new standards in its moisture-giving

and conditioning properties. Even more decisive for its continuing 200-year

success was the fact that after 3 months maturing the soap turned transparent,

which for a long time made Pears Soap easily distinguishable from other soaps.

Even today, connoisseurs swear by the unmistakable, spiced scent of cedar,

rosemary and thyme. 125 g.

6 Lucky Tiger Face Tonic

Developed in the 1920s by the owner of a hairdresser’s

in Kansas City and sold nationwide since 1935,

Lucky Tiger became the best-selling aftershave in the

USA in the 1950s, thanks to its exquisite skin care

properties. The alcohol-free recipe, based on natural

ingredients, means that Lucky Tiger can be applied

to the face immediately after shaving, without causing

redness or irritating the skin: aloe vera and

camomile have a soothing and invigorating effect,

marigold heals and disinfects, vitamins A and E are

antioxidants, and borage oil is highly moisturising. It

has a fresh and light aroma, reminiscent of green

oranges, which evaporates after a short time – so

Lucky Tiger can easily take an additional application

of eau de cologne. 8 oz (227 ml) plastic bottle.

8 For over 80 years: Musgo Real Shaving Cream

This skincare range from the 1920s will appeal to the traditional, classic man. It

is made by the renowned company Claus Porto. The aroma constituting this

line is reminiscent of hay flowers and is composed of a mixture of patchouli

and vetiver. The shaving cream is very rich and produces a thick, creamy foam.

The mixture of natural lanolin, glycerine and coconut oil soaks the beard and

makes it supple. As a result, the blade cuts the stubble more deeply – the shave

is closer and, at the same time, more gentle. Suitable for all skin types.

Unusually rich, so one tube lasts up to three months. 100 ml tube.

Mühle shaving culture from the Erz Mountains

in Germany

into the ownership of the third generation and

is now among the few world-renowned producers

of high-quality shaving brushes and appliances

for wet shaving.

1 Silvertip Shaving Brush

Finest badger hair with silver tips. The best of

the best: choice badger hair with light tips,

which is distinguished by its particularly high

flexibility. The softly peaked tips make microfine

foam. The handle made from synthetic resin

(also used for high quality fountain pens) is

lathed and finely polished – all by hand. The

base is made from high-quality nickel-plated

solid brass. Height 10 cm.

item no. 104603 £ 79.00

2 Best Shaving Brush

The high flexibility of a silvertip brush is not for

everyone. With a brush made from firmer hairs,

foam can be whipped up more quickly and distributed

around the face more precisely and

gently. That's why we have a brush made from

best badger hair. Height 10 cm.

3 For a particularly fine pre-shaving

experience: Mühle Short Shaving Brush

shaving soap extremely precisely: you can almost

paint your face. Height 8 cm.

1 Scents by Czech & Speake

All our scents are originals and could not possibly be compared with mass-produced

products. Czech & Speake can barely be topped when it comes to exclusivity.

The company only produces scents every two years, so that we cannot

offer any after shaves at the moment. The company that was only founded in

1978 is primarily concerned with the design and creation of luxury bathroom

equipment and accessories.

Czech & Speake No. 88

The oldest scent by Czech & Speake, named after the street number of the

shop in London's Jermyn Street. A traditional English perfume that is based on

an original Elizabethan recipe, representing the style of the perfumer. With

notes of bergamot, geranium, attar of rose, blackcurrant and frangipani on a

dry base note of vetiver and sandalwood. 100 ml.

Czech & Speake Cuba

One of the latest fragrances from Czech & Speake, inspired by the old town of

Havana with its Latin rhythms, smooth cigars, fine rum and exotic beauties.

This fragrance bursts into life with the initial top notes of bergamot, lime,

peppermint and a hint of rum. Layered with a melange of spicy and floral

middle notes, mainly rose, clove and bay. The lasting base notes of tobacco

mixed with the richness of frankincense, cedar wood and vetiver round off

this striking fragrance. 100 ml.

and Benjamin Franklin were among his customers.

Jockey Club After Shave

This fragrance was created in 1840 “for the gentleman who prefers one fragrance

for all occasions“. The most famous customer of Jockey Club was probably

John F. Kennedy, who set standards with his lifestyle that are still effective

today. A dry, fresh scent, with notes of forest and amber as well as hints of

bergamot, citrus and patchouli. 88 ml bottle.

Michelsen’s Bay Rum. Not just an after shave.

The basis of this Eau de Toilette (and we mean the literal meaning of the

phrase) is bayberries (the fruit of the tree Pimenta acris, also known as the allspice

tree), orange oil and finest Jamaica rum. The result is an unusual, spicyexotic

composition – unchanged since 1872. For years, Bay Rum has been used

as a hair and facial water, not just for shaving. Used as a body splash it is revitalising

and refreshing and soothes away tension. 88 ml bottle.

2 Bath and body products for men from Acca Kappa

“Acca Kappa” stands for the Italian pronunciation of the letters H and K – the initials

of the German merchant Hermann Krull who in 1869 settled in Treviso, firstly

to trade in pearls and brushes imported from the Orient. Universally known for their

first-class hair brushes, in the past few years Acca Kappa have also been developing

some of the most exclusive skincare lines which in their conception always go by the

principles of simplicity and naturalness. This means that all their skincare products

are made using natural ingredients and without the use of animal testing.

These products are from the Muschio Bianco range from Acca Kappa, which is the

epitome of a restrained, timelessly classic skincare line and is not un-modern. The

elegantly fresh and Mediterranean aroma is built around a base note of cedar wood,

vetiver and maté, a middle note of cardamom, coriander, nutmeg and black pepper,

and a top note of bergamot, orange, cumin and star anise.

a few extra details: the bottom and sides of the bag are made of a double

the inside – which has two pockets, one of which spans the entire length of the bag

with two extra, flexible pockets – there is space for an A4 folder and a laptop (max.

size 36 x 28 x 4 cm). There is additional space for accessories and small items in an

outer pocket with zip, which is where the key strap is attached. There are three

extra open outer pockets with various sizes. Height 35.5 cm, width 19 cm, length

Travel luggage made by Filson: Each piece is made to last a lifetime.

Travel luggage made by Filson in Seattle will stand up to the toughest

demands. In the last great gold rush at the Klondike at the end of the 19th century,

Filson products were among the favourites of the gold hunters on account

of their exceptional robustness. The luggage is made of a very heavy, densely

woven cotton twill (726 g/m 2 ) which is treated with a special paraffin wax to

make it waterproof. All zips and metal parts are made of corrosion-resistant

brass, while all leather parts are made of very tough vegetable-tanned cowhide.

To this day, the bags are made at the Filsons factory in Seattle. To clean,

wipe with a damp sponge or brush off any dirt. Do not machine wash or dry

clean. The zips may initially be difficult to move; this subsides over time. The

bridle leather also softens with use.

1 Filson Briefcase

Spacious briefcase made of cotton twill with a highly sophisticated construction:

the interior is divided into three compartments and the middle one can

safely hold an A4 folder. A laptop with max. size 35 x 27 x 3.5 cm can also be

accommodated in one of the compartments. What's more, there are pockets

for spare batteries, power pack, water bottle, pens, wallet, mobile phone etc.

Handles with grips and removable and adjustable leather shoulder strap. There

are four pockets on the outer sides. Double layer of fabric on the bottom; one

of the long outer pockets has a strap with a brass clip for house or car keys.

Height 32 cm, width 15 cm, length 41 cm, weight approx. 1.9 kg.

The authors of the German almanac “Das Beste

called Brady. We have them made by John

Chapman, the leading English manufacturer of

hunting and angling bags. This bag is made from

double-layered, rubber-reinforced cotton canvas

with leather embellishment and an adjustable

shoulder strap in woven cotton and metal parts

Papworth travel goods:

attaché cases made of

hand-finished traditional

saddle leather

Papworth was founded in 1917 and

is now owned by Swaine Adeney

Brigg, who were founded in 1750,

and, like Papworth, have provided

the English court with leather goods

for decades.

All products are made in a factory near

Cambridge according to traditional methods

from saddle leather and other first-class materials.

Although the bags are made on a production

line, one member of staff is personally responsible

for the quality of each individual product,

and their name can be found on a card in each of

the cases. All articles are delivered inside a green

felt bag in which you can keep the case if it is not

being used for long periods of time.

1 Lid-Over Attaché Case

A classic “Lid-Over”, that is to say that the lid flips over

the top of the body. This differs from the other, slimmer

briefcases in our range, as a large folder fits inside.

Made of saddle leather over a steel frame and

hand crafted. All metal parts are made of solid brass.

Lined with green leather. Inner pocket on the lid

with pen holders. Width 46 cm, depth 33 cm, height

3 Hand-Stitched Lid-Over Attaché Case

A once-in-a-lifetime purchase. Papworth lid-over

attaché case, hand-stitched.

1 Normally, manufacturers use machines to sew through


the thick saddle leather, as it is a strenuous task, but

here this is carried out by hand. This case therefore has a few nice details that distinguish

it from others in the range. With the other cases, the case and lid are made in

three pieces, while with the hand-crafted case, both pieces are made out of a single

piece of saddle leather. This is evident in the fact that on the hand-made case, open

edges of leather can only be seen on the corners. The trained eye can tell the difference

between hand and machine sewing. Apart from the difference in appearance,

the hand sewing is also more resilient. Width 46 cm, depth 11 cm, height 33 cm,

weight 3.3 kg.

9 Ole Mathiesen Watches

In 1980 when Ole Mathiesen was accepted into the permanent collection of the

MoMA in New York, the small manufacturing firm in Copenhagen received international

attention for the first time. Nearly 20 years previously the clockmaker Ole

Mathiesen – started in 1962 – who learned his trade with, among others, the Swiss

manufacturer Jaeger-LeCoultre, designed a collection of classic watches that have

timeless elegance today. The white, slightly domed dial in an extra flat housing in

stainless steel is characteristic. The watches are not just impressively designed, they

are also of first-class quality, which continues to be overseen by Ole Mathiesen, who

is now over 70 years old.

The housing for this wristwatch by Ole Mathiesen is in polished stainless steel, the

glass in scratchproof convex sapphire glass, the wristband in black calves' leather.

The interior of the housing is furnished with a Swiss extra flat quartz movement

ETA 956.032 for high movement precision. Diameter 33 mm, weight 24 g.

Aviator's Watch “Big Crown”

This aviator's watch was given the name “Big

Crown” due to its extra-large winding knob, or

crown, which made it possible for pilots to set

the time zone even when wearing thick gloves.

This made it very popular with the pilots of the

US Air Force because it was easy to operate even

under difficult conditions. The crown and the

knurled rim provide the characteristic appearance

of this legendary watch. This watch,

launched on the market in 1938, was at that

time one of the few watches that had a date

pointer on the dial. For a number of years now

this watch has been produced by Swiss

watchmaker Oris, a company that dates back

around 100 years. Oris was able to defy the tidal

wave of quartz watches and produces up-todate

mechanical watches of top quality. Stainless

steel case that is watertight to 50 m, armoured

Plexiglass, quick correction and screwed stainless

steel back with mineral glass window, luminous

hands and indices using Super-LumiNova® pigments.

MeisterSinger Single-hand watches – a relaxing way to tell the time

The best things come to those who wait. This statement is proven by the striking

products from the Münster watch manufacturer. The single-hand watch is

the precursor to the modern, mechanical watch: the time is shown by just one

hand, as was done centuries ago after the invention of the mechanical watch

and can still be seen on older clock towers today. Single-hand watches only

enable you to tell the time with an accuracy of up to 5 minutes. The people

who use these watches are those who like to take their time about things.

6 Polartec Fleece Blankets

TIME magazine rated Polartec materials as one of the

“100 best inventions of the 20th century” and thus put

Polartec up there with major breakthroughs such as

penicillin, the computer or the zip fastener. The fibres,

made of 100% polyester, take up less than 1% of their

weight in water, meaning that they cannot get wet. As

opposed to lower-quality fleece products, Polartec does

not pill nor lose its insulating properties after being

washed many times. These blankets have a markedly

better insulating capacity than wool and hence are lighter.

They are suitable both for use indoors and outdoors.

Washable at 40 °C. Beige edging. Supplied in the extralarge

size 220 x 160 cm, making it ideal for use by taller

people as well.

The Australian Cooler Bag: lunch bags for the Australian sun

These excellent products are the result of a simple idea: if wool can keep warm

things warm, then it can also keep cold things cool. All the cooler bags are

made of a water-repellent and robust waxed cloth. The lining is made of quilted

Australian wool and, in addition, a foil has been sewn in underneath the

waxed cloth so that condensation cannot get into the wool. Handles made of

leather. The interior is closed off from the outside environment by a thick zip

fastener. Using a normal cooling block, food can be kept cool for up to

24 hours and at least for 6–12 hours. From a small wool processor in western

1 Laguiole Knives from “Forge de Laguiole”

Originating 175 years ago in Laguiole in the Auvergne region, these knives of

the same name quickly became an absolute must for every Frenchman. They

represent the proverbial “savoir vivre” and French lifestyle in a way that virtually

no other object does. The knives from the “Forge de Laguiole” all bear

the quality label “Laguiole Origine Garantie”, which verifies compliance with

specific quality criteria and that they indeed come from Laguiole. The blades

are individually forged (not stamped out) from non-rusting T12 steel and hardened.

brass, the hand-made handles are made either of olive wood or resin-impregnated

laminated wood. Length 11 cm, length with blade folded out 20.5 cm,

1 A place to keep your thoughts: LEUCHTTURM1917 Notebook

There are many similar notebooks to these ones out there, and some falsely

claim to be the original. That can’t be said of these books. The traditional

company, with more than 90 years’ experience, has given these products a few

extra features to raise them out of their everyday status, making them – in our

view – the most sophisticated bound notebooks of all. All LEUCHTTURM1917

notebooks have numbered pages, and at the start of every book there is a

blank contents page. This enables you to find your notes easily at any time.

And you can also include cross references within your notes (“see page XY”).

The last 32 pages of every book are perforated, meaning that you always have

a piece of paper with you if you want to pass on a note to someone. A set of

several stickers for labelling the cover and spine is enclosed with all books –

the spine labels are helpful for archiving. The largest book, called “Master”,

has particularly attracted our attention. It is in oversize A4 format, which

means that you can put A4 sheets of paper safely inside. The remaining features

come as standard, but we’ll mention them anyway: thread-stitched

pages, wipe-clean cover material, bookmark ribbon (except for “Block”),

elastic closure, and a pocket in the back cover to keep sheets of paper in.

After the ban that had been in place in France

on the import and production of "Indiennes"

printed cotton fabrics since 1686 was lifted by

Louis XV in 1759, textiles from foreign

merchants began to flow into the country. As a

result of this, Christoph-Philipp Oberkampf

moved to France from Württemberg and founded

a fabric factory in Jouy-en-Josas in Île de

France. The colourfully printed cotton fabrics,

which were designed from 1783 by

Jean-Baptiste Huet, one of the best-known

artists of the day, achieved fame in Europe

under the name "toiles de jouy" and remain to

this day a symbol of 18th century rural life in

France. The fabric we have used depicts a motif

based on the very popular "Four Seasons"

design from the 18th century.

1 Glengarnock Cord Trousers

Cord trousers from Glenarnock with a flat front without pleats, two pockets on

the sides and two back pockets. The fabric for these trousers is a robust, extremely

soft cord made of pure cotton called Corduroy by Brisbane Moss. This

famous weaver in Lancashire is one of the last quality manufacturers of this

fabric. The fabric is with 8 “wale”, which means 8 ribs per inch. The lines are

cut on the top to emphasise the brilliance of the colours. Weight of fabric

470 g/sq m. Front zip and hook fastening. The trouser legs have no hem, must

therefore be worn with continental or English leg lengths, with or without a

collar. The width of the bands is given in inches, which is standard for jeans.

Washable at 30 °C, not suitable for tumble drying, iron on the inside.

Glengarnock, manufacturer of traditional country wear in the Scottish

Kilbirnie, focuses on careful attention to detail. “At Glengarnock real tailoring

skills still matter.” £ 129.00

2 Pea Coats from Gloverall for Ladies and Men

This jacket is an absolute classic, which has been used by seamen all over the

world for well over a hundred years in a similar form. In France, similar jackets

are known by the name Caban and in Germany they are known as Colani. The

name comes from the Kiel tailors Berger & Colani, who provided the Kaiser's

navy with these jackets since the end of the 19th century.

The outer material is made of 75% wool and is wind-resistant thanks to the

natural wool fat and the thickness of the material, and stays dry for a long time

even in the rain. 25% nylon supports these qualities and helps the fabric retain

its shape. When raised, the large collar also offers additional protection against

the wind. It can be fixed upright with a band which can be buttoned on the

collar crease – if the band is not needed it can be buttoned to the inside of the

jacket out of the way. The men's model has an inside pocket and two slanted

side pockets. The ladies’ version has two outside pockets. £ 249.00

From Scotland:

Torquato Lambswool Sweater

Hawick, a small town in the southwest of Scotland, is a mecca for knitwear

production in Great Britain. Our sweaters are made here by a company with a

tradition of over 130 years. It is barely worth mentioning that we only use

pure new wool rather than recycled quality wool. The remarkable softness of

the wool lies in the exclusive use of first-class “first clip” lambs’ wool from

Australia. This can only be collected when the sheep are shorn for the first

time. The hair is still fine and elastic and the hair tips are rounded – in contrast

to later shearings. This wool is spun to very thin threads

in Scotland, which is then twisted with a second thread

to make twine.

This sweater made from two-ply Australian lambs’ wool

is knitted “fully fashioned”, which means that the correct

fit is already provided by the knitting pattern. The

sweaters therefore sit well and keep their shape.

Ribbed neckline and cuffs.

Authentic belts for Jeans: Quick Release Belts

The buckles of these belts made of solid brass are made

by our English supplier based on the design of old firemen’s

belts. The buckle had to be easy to open in an

emergency with one movement, as the heavy equipment

was fixed to the belt. Made of a piece of bridle leather,

therefore very hard wearing and markedly more

long lasting than stitched belts. Width 3.1 cm. Available

in waist sizes 80–115 cm (5 cm intervals).

9 Appenzeller Belts

Even though this belt has been very trendy for years, it

is actually a part of Swiss tradition. This craft, undertaken

by Alpine farmers called the “Sennen”, has formed

an integral part of the Appenzell culture for more

than 200 years. These products are handmade from leather

and metal fittings (metal plates with Alpine motifs).

It used to be braces that were mainly produced and the

more motifs (brass plates) the braces have the more

affluent the wearer is deemed to be. The belts are made

of black leather with decorative metal parts in solid

brass plate with the Alpine ascent featuring shepherd,

dog and cows. The belts are made in a “Sennen” production

shop in Appenzell. The belts are also available in

a narrower 3 cm and a wider 4 cm version with waist

measurements of 75–110 (5 cm intervals).

well chosen: English Bridle Leather Belts

Each belt is made from one piece of saddle leather and the production takes

place in a small leather-manufacturing company based in Worcestershire. As

the process does not involve any stitching at the edges, the belts are exceedingly

heavy-duty and last for much longer than stitched ones. The buckles are

made of solid brass.

LACO Ties: made in Germany

The company founded by the English merchant Charles

Lavy in Hamburg in 1838 still focuses today on pure

handicraft – and is consequently one of the last two of

its trade in Germany. In 1900 LACO employed over 500

workers in its workshops and counted even Kaiser

Wilhelm II among its customers. The special thing about

a LACO tie is the interlining. It consists of a fabric made

from wool and cotton and is elastic. Because of it, the

fibres can relax after untying. Tie material 100% silk.

5 Lakeland Wellington Boots

While the Scottish manufacturer Hunter has specialised

more in rubber boots for hunting, fishing and

other outdoor leisure activities, the English company

Lakeland has focused on boots for farming and gardening.

Lakeland boots are shaped like classic

Wellington boots, or “wellies” for short, named

after the inventor of the style, the Duke of

Wellington. The turned-up toes, heel, buckle on the

leg and the strong green colour are characteristic.

Made of 100% natural rubber with jersey-cotton

lining. Removable insole. Sizes: 5 (38 EU), 6 (39 EU),

7 (40/41 EU), 8 (42 EU), 9 (43 EU), 10 (44 EU) and

from the cold on autumn and winter days (apart

from with severe frost). Slit at the front for ease when

Torquato Waterproof Rainwear

“Wear Millerain for sunshine and rain.” That's the slogan of British Millerain

Co. Ltd in West Yorskhire, which has been England's leading manufacturer of

waterproof fabrics since the 1880s. The fabric produced by British Millerain for

our raincoats and pea coats harks back to an invention by the Scotsman Charles

Macintosh, who in 1818 successfully inserted a layer of rubber between two

cotton layers for the first time, making the first truly waterproof fabric – until

then, people had normally used canvas steeped in linseed oil. Our fabric is

made up of two layers of fine cotton twill with a waterproof membrane in between.

The material is waterproof and windproof. Fabric weight 325 g/sq m.

Washable to 40 °C, slow spin. Do not tumble dry, iron hot or dry clean.

1 Waterproof Pea Coat

Waterproof sailor's jacket made of navy blue British Millerain fabric. Like the

warm woollen jacket it is based on, this pea coat reaches down to around the

upper third of the thigh. To protect against the wind and rain, the lapel can be

lifted up and buttoned down. Two outer pockets, one small inner pocket with

zip and ventilation holes under the arms. Unlined, which makes the beige

reverse of the outer fabric visible. Double-seamed in the areas under most

stress, e.g. the sleeve seams. Available in sizes 38–50 and 40 long–46 long.

item no. 900758 £ 249.00

2 Waterproof Cotton Jacket

Raincoat with a short cut reaching down to the middle of the thigh made of

beige, waterproof British Millerain fabric. The origin of this raincoat shape

goes back to riding jackets, first seen in the 18th century and known as redingotes,

whose basic shape has survived unaltered today. The coat has a concealed

button placket with horn buttons, a vent at the back, 2 angled pockets,

a small inner pocket with zip and ventilation holes under the arms. Unlined,

which makes the dark blue reverse of the outer fabric visible. Double-seamed

in the areas under most stress, e.g. the sleeve seams. Available in sizes 38–50

and 40 long–46 long.

1 Galoshes 1: Overshoes from the USA

“Galoshes” was originally an expression used in Vienna

to mean overshoes made of rubber. Although this

expression is used colloquially nowadays for all sorts of

shoes or boots, it is hard to find rubber overshoes – even

though they are very practical! You can take them everywhere

with you, e.g. rolled up in a large coat pocket or

even in your car. When it is rainy or muddy you can

quickly put them on and just as quickly take them off

again. This is why they are ideal for walking along

slushy pavements to work, for example, or a great help

for architects on building sites. Our galoshes come from

the USA. Sizes: 6.5–8 (40–42 EU), 8–9.5 (42–44 EU),

9.5–10.5 (44–45.5 EU), 10.5–13.5 (45.5–49 EU).

2 Galoshes 2: Overshoes “de luxe” from England

Everything said about the American galoshes above

applies here too. These are particularly robust and are

lined with fabric, just like our Wellington boots. The

sole is sturdy and thick and especially durable. The pull

tab at the heel makes this shoe easy to put on and take

off. Sizes: 5 (38 EU), 6 (39 EU), 7 (40/41 EU), 8 (42 EU),

9 (43 EU), 10 (44 EU) and 11 (45/46 EU).

Hats from James Lock

James Lock & Co. is probably the most traditional British

hat maker located in St James’s Street, London. It has

been making hats for the royal family and other gentry

since 1620. Lock also makes top hats, bowler hats and

women's hats.

3 James Lock Bush Hat

This classic felt hat is primarily worn in the country

when going for walks, horseriding, fishing or hunting,

and also used to be seen on such occasions in the

English colonies. It is ideal when you are out and about

in the country in the rain and need to keep your hands

free. The Bush hat is handmade from pure woollen felt

and provides very effective protection against the rain

for many hours at a time. This is enhanced by the 7 cm

wide brim. If the hat has become damp, the felt shrinks

slightly as it dries out. Nevertheless, its original size is

soon restored when put on the head again. Hat band

made of fine beige fabric. Available in sizes 6 3 / 4 –7 5 / 8

(55–62 EU).

Sebago Classic Loafer

Sebago was founded in Maine, USA in 1946. The Classic Loafer, also known as

the “Penny Loafer”, is the Sebago shoe par excellence. It has been made on the

same lasts since the Forties. The particular feature about this shoe is not only its

characteristic appearance but the interior: during the production process a piece

of leather, which is sewn together at the heel, is knocked into shape on the lasts.

Afterwards, a stretchable “welt”, a rubber strip, is hand sewn on to the upper

leather. Then a foam rubber cushion is glued into the front part and the back

part is stabilised using a steel insert. Finally, the leather sole is sewn directly onto

the “welt”. The result: a shoe which is incomparable in fit, flexibility and wearing

comfort. £ 189.00

Torquato Academy: Calf Leather Half Brouge

Made by a family-owned business which has been stitching shoes in

Northampton since 1915. Torquato has commissioned this company to produce

handmade leather semi brogue shoes. Special emphasis is placed on careful selection

of the leather to ensure that it is soft. This means the shoes will be longlasting

and comfortable to wear. It takes a good 6 weeks to produce a pair of

Goodyear welt shoes as there are more than 200 steps from beginning to

finish. Each shoe is unique. A semi brogue is the term used to describe the perforation

pattern on the shoe. This style has a minimalist design, balmoral and

cap toe with rosette. After the shoe has been worn, a wooden shoehorn should

be inserted for at least one day.

Chelsea Boots from R.M. Williams

Chelsea boots which take their characteristic appearance from the elastic

band which is worked into the ankle on both sides. This makes the boots comfortable

to wear and easy to put on and take off. The leather of the boot leg

is made of robust but very fine leather from one-year-old calves and the lining

is also made of leather. All seams are finished with waxed thread and are then

dipped in hot wax to seal them The heels are nailed from inside. These Chelsea

boots can be worn with jeans or other casual wear, but also with a suit. Our

boots from R.M. Williams are one of the only shoes of its kind, where the

bootleg is made from a single piece of leather. The ridge on the instep is clearly

recognisable – the leather is moulded into the later shape of the bootleg

1 Docksides from Sebago

This model is probably even more well-known

than Sebago’s loafer. The name, Docksides, is

synonymous with boating and sailing shoes.

Besides hobby sailors and world-class professionals,

who very much appreciate the non-slip

soles and shoe comfort, the Docksides shoe has

a whole host of fans even outside the world of

water sports. Handsewn shoe in a genuine moccasin

construction with white sole in order not

to leave marks on boat decks. The soles have a

wave profile and are made of a special combination

of natural solid rubber and latex without

any diluents, thereby preventing shoes

from slipping on different ground surfaces. The

leather shoelaces, which have been threaded

through the eyelets, are not for decoration purposes

– they allow the wearer to adjust the

width of the shoe. Care with neutral leather

dubbing. Available for ladies in sizes

2 Bertl Classic Boots

The double seam technique is a long established method

of affixing the sole to the leather upper using double

stitching. This technique was developed round about

200 years ago for mountain farmers and woodsmen in

the Alps who had to work high in the mountains under

severe weather conditions. Schuh-Bertl is based in

Munich and still manufactures these shoes today using

traditional methods. At 3–3.5 mm thick, the upper leather

is unusually thick and makes the boot very sturdy.

As the lining in the heel is the first to rip, the boot is only

lined at the front using calf leather. The heel is reinforced

on the outside with a leather cap. The insole,

which is the foundation of the construction, is made of

ecologically tanned leather. This supports the foot. The

outsole has a sturdy rubber profile which makes every

step secure. It is waterproof and non-abrasive. A layer of

felt has been inserted between the inner sole and outsole

to absorb any shocks and insulate, as has an intersole

made of rubber. Available in 6.5 (40 EU), 7.5 (41 EU),

8 (42 EU), 9 (43 EU), 9.5 (44 EU), 10.5 (45 EU), 11 (46 EU).

before assembly by fulling. This intricate process allows for a more elegant fit

which fits the foot better and stops the leather buckling when walking. Chelsea

boots made of fulled or unfulled leather are very different from one another. R.M.

Williams from Adelaide in Australia have made a name for themselves since the

1930s for their first-class riding and work boots. In the hard conditions of the outback

R.M. Williams proved themselves and became a synonym for the best quality.

We offer these welt-sewn Chelsea boots from R.M. Williams – these are known as

“dress boots” to distinguish them from the rest. With leather sole or a synthetic

sole (ideal for use outdoors).

Shoe Trees

You can easily extend the life of a good pair of leather shoes by not wearing

them every day. Instead give them a day's rest and let them dry on a shoe-tree

if possible so that the shoes stay in shape. If you use a shoe tree made of wood

some of the moisture in the shoe can be absorbed by the shoe tree.

7 Adjustable Shoe Trees

These shoe trees can be adjusted to make your shoes a more perfect fit and

even stretch shoes which are slightly too small. With holes at the front to

allow air to circulate. Beech wood. Sizes 6–12 (40–47 EU).

2 Luxury Tie Rack

The best way to store a large tie collection – just hang the ties over the polished

wooden bars, which are arranged in a cascade. There is room for a total of 44 ties,

with plenty of space for them to recover from having been knotted. Also suitable

for belts. The whole rack can be slid along its stable steel mounting, so you can pull

take up a certain amount of space – the rack is 14 cm deep. For mounting on the

right-hand side of the cupboard. Made of solid pine. Width 58 cm, height 22.5 cm,

1 Tie Rack

In our view, this is the best way to store your ties.

In recent years, a number of upmarket products have come on to the market –

these are normally similar to coat hangers (preferably cedar, embellished with

an attractive emblem) with brass prongs to hang the ties on. The problem

is that the ties keep falling off! These products are not all they’re cracked up

to be.

This brilliant tie-holder can be screwed on to a side wall or the inside of your

wardrobe door (screws included). By moving any one of the hooks, all 21 of

them move out from the wooden bar and then it is easy to hang ties on the

hooks or remove them. When you have finished, just push the hooks back

against the bar with one easy movement. The ties then take up hardly any

space, and will not fall off. Width 41 cm, height 7 cm, weight 370 g. Made of

varnished beech wood.

Deep shoe care for long life – for more than

80 years – Saphir Medaille d’Or

The Saphir Medaille d'Or care range was developed

on the basis of this principle. At the

1925 world exhibition in Paris, Saphir was

awarded a gold medal for the high quality of

its products – since then the brand has been

extended to include the top-quality Medaille

d'Or range. The recipe has never been changed,

Saphir Medaille d'Or is produced in Charente in

western France, as it was 80 years ago and is

made only with natural ingredients. Regular

application of Saphir Medaille d'Or helps

extend the life of the leather, and therefore the

shoes. Suitable for all smooth leather shoes.

1 Saphir Shoe Care Cream

A shoe cream made of different oils, waxes and

coloured pigments. The high quality moisturisers

soak deep into the leather and keep the

structure soft. The fibres remain elastic and

creases are reduced. Microscopic colour pigments

refresh their appearance. The wax contained

in the cream make it suitable for polishing

and seal the surface. In contrast to soft

water-based creams, this cream is a simple oil

emulsion. Made of neat's foot and mink oil,

carnauba and beeswax, balsam turpentine oil

and colour pigments. Recommended use once

per month. 100g glass container. Regular applications

of a hard wax cream on shoe upper leather

helps provide optimum protection against

damp and dirt. To retain the elasticity and

structure of the collagen fibres in the leather,

the leather also needs adipose care products.



This helps the leather retain its flexibility and reduce

the tendency to crease or tear. Therefore shoes should

also be treated with an adipose cream as well as a hard

wax cream from time to time.

2 Saphir Shoe-Shine Wax

Optimum protection and water proofing properties, as

well as lasting shine can only be achieved with a topquality

hard wax cream. Those made by Saphir contain

one of the hardest natural waxes – the wax of the

Brazilian Carnauba palm – and beeswax. Fully soluble

colour crystals create a particularly deep and lasting

coloured shine when polishing. The workable consistency

is achieved when non-resinous balsam turpentine

oil is added. The oil should also remove old water marks

and have a cleaning or stain removing effect. The

Saphir shine wax is suitable for both a brush and a highgloss

water based polish. If shoes are worn regularly

they should be treated several times a month. 50ml tin.

Docksides for Children and Adolescents

This children's version of Sebago boater shoes has all

the features that have made the “big” Docksides a

popular classic: they can withstand long periods near

water and on the beach without any trouble. They are

stitched by hand like moccasins, their outer material

and inner sole are made of seawater-resistant leather

and they have an abrasion-resistant and non-slip rubber

sole with wave tread pattern – all this makes them

exceptionally robust and reliable. Tied with leather

laces that go through eyelets all around the shoe, which

also regulate the width. Condition with colourless

7 Child's Foot Measuring Device

One problem when fitting children’s shoes is

that the child cannot reliably tell you whether

the shoe fits properly and it is impossible for the

adult to know by feeling the foot in the shoe. To

avoid growth problems with children’s feet and

make sure they have enough space, it is important

to buy exactly the right size shoes. This slide

caliper will help you do just that by measuring

the length of the child’s foot and calculating the

correct size for the inside of the shoe, taking

account of the space the toes need when walking,

room for growth, and minimum height

needed at the toe end of the shoe to avoid pressure

on the big toe. For shoe sizes from 14 to 37

(insert for sizes 30–37, not shown). At 14 x

3.5 cm, the caliper will fit comfortably into a

purse, so it is easy to take with you when you go

to buy shoes.

6 Singing Clock Farmyard yellow

Every hour on the hour this clock makes the sound of a

countryside animal. With this clock, children who do

not know how to tell the time or understand its significance

will soon take an interest in it. They will wait to

hear the noise of a particular animal and ask how long

it is until it's the cow's turn. Before very long, they will

know that bedtime comes shortly before the cat. As a

result, they will learn to tell the time much more quickly.

A light-sensitive cell ensures the clock does not make

any noise when it is dark. Animal noises recorded from

real country animals. On/off switch for the sound requires

3 x AA batteries (not included), Ø 34 cm, wall mounting,

weight 850 g.
