Aero Leather – Kolesch Leder forgotten Collaboration:

Recently I visited the Kolesch Tannery in Biberach which is the last remaining “altsämisch” Tannery in Europe. Please take the time to have a look at the video of master tanner Kolesch (speaking in Swabian).

The tour around the Tannery was very impressive, to see a such old craft still in practice. Here some images I took for a different project called Bodenseh-Kultur.

The altsämisch tanned buckskin by Kolesch is a real superior product used by Kolesch for their traditional cloth but also highly valued by others. But honestly I could not believe my eyes to see 8 Aeroleather Jackets in their showroom. Hardly there is a chance that there is someone walking in there to real value these jackets and buy one. So I promised Mrs. Kolesch to write a bit about those rare jackets which probably were made for the Japanese market my Aero out of Kolesch tanned leather. 

So If you are interested to buy one or all of them contact them.

Sizing and colors are:
2 x light brown 44 + 38
3 x dark brown 48 + 42 + 34
2 x dark grey 36 + 46
1 x black 36 (this one has a bit of different details)

U. Tauber – handsewn Indian Head nickel wallet

Last week I got a parcel by U. Tauber with some great hand crafted leather items he made. One is the small Indian Head / Buffalo nickel wallet. All hand sewn, made out of leather he just got from the Schachenmeyer Tannery (which sadly closes down soon). Perfectly crafted, and I hope I can learn at least a bit of his skills soon.

Check also the AO Original Pilot Sunglass Cover he made.
