PHILOSOPHY

To keep the unique unrivaled

Saddlers and upholsterers turn off-the-peg products into something special.

They create and maintain value – objectively and individually. They personalise the impersonal. 

With craftsmanship and attention to detail, they give expression to their customers’ personalities and create environments in which they feel at home – at home and on the move.

Saddlers and upholsterers make the ordinary extraordinary.

They create something unique.

With all our experience, the huge product range and the expertise of our team, we always recommend and supply these “unique makers” with the material with which they perfectly master their tasks.
We do this as hanseatic businessmen.
We do this so that the unique remains unrivaled.

This is how we develop and maintain lasting customer relationships.

And preserve the craft.
