the team

Behind every product there is a story. 

A very personal story. Long discussions over a cup of tea or coffee. Team lunches on a big sofa which is already too small. Freezing winter working days. Long phone calls with friends, customers, artisans and crazy business partners.

Tons of paper and leather. A lot of patience and commitment. Some mistakes. Big dreams and small steps. No Power-Points. Care and Respect. Welcome to the republic!
