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.
This EtaProof® coat is sporty and elegant – and fits perfectly between seasons. Without a slit on the back, the coat is partially lined and comes with angled welt pockets on the front. The side panel seams give the garment a tailored fit. Sleeves and back lining are sewn into the hems, which are piped throughout the garment. The shaped facing, out of the same fabric as the outside layer, provides the perfect fit of this coat. The facing goes up to the top of the sleeves, thus preventing it from sliding down. Real horn buttons are part of the concealed button line. The pouch pockets double as inside pockets.

The Bolich outdoor lamps of black-coated aluminium are among the most popular of our range and we’ve been asked again and again by customers if we can’t do them in copper. So we took the request on board and asked the manufacturer, Bolich in southern Germany, to make this one for us. In shape they of course resemble the aluminium model, 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. The lamps are – needless to say – made to be used out of doors.

The rotating hand mixer comes from the Pennsylvania Amish who produce devices like these which do not use electricity mainly for their own use. The large size kitchen utensil is truly well made. The cog rapidly twirls the two whisks in opposing direction with a gear reduction of 1 to 5. The hand mixer is especially useful for making chocolate mousse or cake batter and for beating egg whites. It is made of stainless steel and zinc die-cast, only the handles are made of plastic unfortunately. All parts can be replaced – we have them in stock.

This double-stitched calf-length boot of the best nubuk comes in a deep brown shade. The special tanning, dyeing and manufacturing process gives the leather its nice, warm, rather ‘fatty’ feel and superlative suppleness. The inside sole is of vegetable-tanned leather; mid-sole and outer sole are of rubber. The boot is fully lined inside with wool felt, plus wool felt removable insole. The upper shaft is made of the same material – a good four millimeters thick – with rear calf buckle. You can buy these boots only from us.

It is as uncomplicated to set up and as durable as any other elevated flower bed. Once assembled, this raised garden bed will grow beautifully into the garden landscape, when, for example, grass and blossoming wild flowers climb up on the steel grilles. Each grille is made of the same zinc-aluminum covered steel. The segments can be easily put together without the help of tools; with combining hooks of the same material, they are brought into shape and placed on the soil – an anchor is not required. With regard to the choice of filling materials there are no limitations.

This chair presents a good example of the kind of work produced by the ‘Vienna Avant-Garde’ (centered around Hoffmann, Loos and Wagner) at the beginning of the 20th century. The idea was to achieve a ‘floating balance’ between the old and the new, between traditional and modern design. Not only the chair but also the makers are famous – the firm of Stoelker, operating from the small town of Ettenheim in Baden, south-western Germany, and producing in Slovenia. The back of the chair is made of solid beech-wood, and the ribs are steam-bent. The front rib section is even dove-tailed by hand.

It is almost a mobile filing cabinet. This expanding accordion file is covered entirely in black linen and has tough, chrome-plated steel corner protectors. The red compartments have reinforced gussets for durability and strength and the file expands – much like an accordion – from about 6 cm when empty to a remarkable total width of 75 cm. The 20 file compartments have metal index tabs intended for alphabetical dividers – but other dividers may be inserted. The clasp can be fixed at two different heights, to enable documents which are larger than the standard A4 size to be filed.

A classic men’s cardigan, knitted in Scotland from non-dyed and unbleached pure new wool and with an extremely soft – but certainly wind resistant – surface. Peerie sheep can only be found on the Shetland Islands. The untreated wool is locally sorted according to color and then spun into rather coarse yarns. The cardigan is fully-fashioned and comes with genuine horn buttons and integrated side pockets. Available in two different colors.

The sheep-like “humpless” camels that produce the precious alpaca hair live in altitudes of up to 4.000 meters with extreme temperature fluctuations, between the burning sun and freezing nights. The animals are protected by their fleece of long hair that has excellent isolation qualities since it is a hollow fiber. The hairs are warmer and lighter than wool, yet stronger and more robust. Only partly shorn every 18 months, each camelid produces a mere 2 kg of the valuable hairs, which are then spun into a pure, soft, silky, shiny yarn. Our sweaters are handmade from Bolivian raw materials and come from La Paz.
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.
