Alexander von Bronewski Manufaktur – Photoshooting with Mia Feline / Goldenfox

This week I got a visit at my workshop from the Photographer Mia Feline – Goldenfox.
She spent a day with me and Tillmann to capture me working (an Tillmann waiting to finally going to play Frisbee) on various products eg. a Clutch Bag, a Tote Bag, a Belt and a leather covered Flask. Im very happy with the results and for sure this will not be the last time we work with Mia and Goldenfox.

Roger Dörig Sennsattler – Appenzeller Gürtel – Belt:
If you ever cross the border from Germany to Austria and over to Switzerland, called the Dreiländereck, you have to see the workshop of Roger Dörig a Sennsattler. His workshop is over 125 years old which he runs now in the 4th generation. A Sennsattler is a mix of a saddler and a goldsmith. Most famous for the special Appenzeller Gürtel / Appenzeller belts. Every item on the belts are sawed out from a piece of metal and later on engraved by hand and carefully attached with small rivets to the belt.

I´ve been in his workshop about 3 years ago and promised to come back to get a customized belt done by Roger Dörig. A great surprise to see one of his belts in the legacy of my father. Which he wore fore at least a decade and guess what, i will hopefully do this as well for some more.

Have a look at Roger Dörig´s workshop and a video of him showing his profession and passion.  (in swiss german – hard to understand if you are not swiss or from the border area to switzerland).
