The cooperation with the colombian manufactory was established in 1987 on the basis of labour agreements regulated by law and on the basis of jobs subject to social security in contrast to the usual and widely spread migratory labour in this region. As a result of these guidelines, most of the workers of our South American partner have been with the company for more than 20 years – a fact that guarantees profound and sustainable know-how and thus high quality of the products.
The leather applied comes from the surrounding regions in South America. The same applies to the cattle, which live in the nature in South America and not in barns as most of the animals in Europe do.
metal parts and linings feature a high level of impenetrability and
tear resistance and are as well part of our local supply concept.
Taking the above into consideration, the eco-balance of the products is marvellous although the products are finally transported across the Atlantic.
