Danish Craftsmanship. Beechwood Cobbler Stool

Beechwood Cobbler Stool

Its predecessors were three-legged milking stools with a simple, semi-circular seat. Beginning in the 17th century, Danish “Clog makers” started using this pragmatic stool form, and because they had to spend the entire day sitting, they equipped their furniture with an appropriately shaped – and rather more comfortable – seat pan. Our producer in Denmark manufactures this particulary comfortable cobbler stool by employing the original template from the production year 1936 and carrying out production in 23 work stages.

A Classic. Cowhide Hunter’s Bag

Cowhide Hunter’s Bag

This bag wasn’t made for hunters really. We left out typical details such as the shell holder or the “chicken gallows” – where the kill is hung. Instead, we borrowed from classic game bags, which focus on essential functionality. This model is virtually predestined for everyday use and was handcrafted from robust cowhide in a Westphalian Saddler’s workshop. From the back to the front flap, the body of the bag is cut from one continuous piece of leather, and the main compartment provides storage space for everyday utensils.

New Light. Swedish Outdoor Lamp Wall Bracket

Our range of Swedish outdoor lamps have parts that can be combined in all sorts of interesting ways for wall or standing lights. They’re a truly cheering alternative to the dreary stuff you see in most porches and gardens. Where electro-technology is concerned, the Swedes seem to have something that other nations lack – a combination of fine basic materials – steel tubing and brass in this case – a sense of elegance and style, imagination – and good workmanship. Learn more about the wall lamps here.

For Rough Use. Ox Neck Leather Blotter

Ox Neck Leather Blotter

Of all the parts of the cowhide the neck is the most durable. In constant motion, the neck alternately contracts and relaxes, directly influencing the fiber structure. Combined with the rough surface the characteristic striations running the length of the leather make ox neck leather ideal for blotters and mouse pads. Our blotters are made of black vegetable tanned ox neck leather and come with cellular rubber coating on the obverse side.

For Your Favourite Wine. La Rochère Decanter

La Rochere Decanter

This hand blown decanter comes from the oldest glassblowing works in France. Although unusual in shape, it fulfils its function to perfection: 0.75 l just about half fills this decanter. The liquid level then has the largest possible surface area which is so important for allowing wine to breathe. The decanter – best for mature red wines – is made of very thin glass and the wine quickly adapts to the ambient temperature. The wide neck permits easy decanting without air locks; the neck is tapered, thus preventing loss of bouquet.

Made in Germany. Steel Rain Barrel with Hose Connector

Steel Rain Barrel with Hose Connector

A rain barrel with a closed lid and, on the outer surface at a height of 1.08 m, a brass plug – installed for connecting a hose and operating with a rain collector. This is advantageous because the barrel can be separated from a downspout at a distance of up to 5 m, for example, directly at that place where the water is needed. To safely protect against rust, the barrel is completely hot-dip galvanised in an immersion bath. It is manufactured in a metal-working shop in Westphalia.

Historic Hand-Tool. Manufactum Forged Short Hoe

Manufactum forged short hoe

In the past a skilled artisan valued his tools in three ways: firstly – and obviously – they had to do the job; secondly, the materials they were made of had to be familiar and trustworthy – good wood, good metal; thirdly, they had to possess a certain aesthetic quality beyond mere functionality. A collector of historic garden tools that we know has gone through piles of old implements and catalogues, and helped us make a selection. Here are the results – garden tools, made specially for us in the old style by the Dutch toolsmiths' firm Sneeboer & Co.

Flawless mechanics. Cyclop Uncorking Machine

Cyclop Uncorking Machine

This model goes back to 1929. A specialized machine workshop in Steinbach-Hallenberg in Thuringia is assembling the uncorking machine for us again. Steinbach-Hallenberg is known as the center in Germany for these machines. The “Cyklop“ is made from lost wax cast iron and is very heavy. The handle is made of wood, the mechanical action is flawless. And it’s a handsome device. The crank is sidemounted so that pressure and pulling occur simultaneously, requiring less strength for uncorking.

Duroplast. Mixing Bowl Made of Melamine Resin

Mixing Bowl Made of Melamine Resin

This especially attractive kitchen bowl is heavy, shock-resistant and stable, with a quite respectable foot made of rubber, hygienic, easy to clean, blessed with a long life and suitable for the dishwasher (not for the microwave). We offer this bowl in two sizes and in different colours. The material – melamine resin – can only be processed in a mold, thus making it immune to the whims of self-assured designers and the technological impoverishment of cheaper knock-offs. Melamine resin has long been used for kitchen utensils because of its extreme hardness, high thermal stability and food grade.

Ropemaker's Craft. Oak Swing

Oak Swing

This swing is made in a rope factory on Lake Constance with a suspension rope that is custom designed and made particularly for the swing. The rope strands are individually guided through the prepared holes in the board and interwoven into an indissoluble loop, which then transitions to the long suspension rope. Polyhemp is used as a braiding material; it is a synthetic material made of polypropylene fibers. It hardly allows in any water, so that even by an extensive downpour there is no risk of rotting. The same goes for the massive oak seat, whose design the manufacturer derived from a model in a neighboring woodworking shop.

Forged in Holland. Manufactum Stainless Steel Garden Rake

Manufactum Stainless Steel Garden Rake

There’s something about good tools – they work ‘with’ you, and somehow ‘repay’ in ‘feel’ the skill and hard work you, the user, invest in them. We’ve assembled our range of garden tools with just this in mind, and had them made for us by the old-established Dutch smithy of Sneeboer. We’ve used two different types of steel: a more highly alloyed type, tougher, for the tongues and necks to the handles, and a lower alloyed type, easier to forge, for the working surfaces. We’ve given the tongues and necks extra length for greater stability and to reduce the risk of breaking. The neck is secured to the oiled ashwood handle by brass rivets to prevent any feeling of looseness.
