The traditional craft fascinates custom shoemaker Sascha Helm more than his learned profession of orthopaedic shoemaker.

So he trained as a journeyman in Austria and learned the classical profession from Rudolf Scheer&Söhne in Vienna.

His customers can now benefit from the accumulated experience of both orientations. Sascha Halm provides them with individually handcrafted bespoke shoes made of high-quality materials, with excellent craftsmanship and in a form that is completely tailored to their wishes.

Each custom-made shoe is a unique piece and an investment in health.

Designer Enzo Forciniti runs a manufacture for individual wooden spectacle frames.

As an autodidact, he started to work with the construction of wooden spectacles a few years ago. Meanwhile he is an absolute expert who knows how to defend the ergonomic, material and aesthetic advantages of wooden spectacles very well.

With his expertise he can convey impressive detailed knowledge and lets us also look at "normal" glasses from completely new perspectives – and flirt with wooden glasses.

For the architect Angela Wandelt, wearing hats is an expression of personality and individuality. She herself has been wearing and collecting hats since her youth and taught herself the craft of hat making.

She finally founded "Gela-Hats" and created a place for very individual fashion in Leipzig. Soon her creations were also enthusiastically received at the trade fairs in New York, Berlin, Hamburg and Vienna.

"Fashion is ephemeral. Style never" This insight of Coco Chanel has been adopted by the hat designer.

„Rothöll“, the name of her manufacture of bags and accessories made of fish-leather was composed by the founder Annekatrin Döll from "roð", the Icelandic word for "fish-leather" and her family name "Döll".

Today, fish seems to be a very unusual source for leather production. But already the indigenous peoples of Alaska and Siberia developed methods to make extremely durable and supple leather from fish skin.

„Rothöll“ follows this ecologically and fashionably attractive principle of transforming industrial remains of the fishing industry into luxurious, durable and beautiful leather goods.
