We are a group of people working with our minds, hands and hearts, committed to beauty and craftsmanship.
It is not possible to imagine all the diligent people it takes to do the countless hand movements necessary to make our products. These are some of our constant companions who help us with our communication, graphics, video and photography and IT solutions. The above photo has been taken at the famous Looshaus in Vienna.
We are extremely grateful for the immense expertise our collaborators provide us with. We would like to say “thank you” a lot more and speak of the “big picture”, which is only possible through the commitment of all of us.
