Great we have announced them, our new products. Rightly so. But where are they, the new bags called "Komplizin", "Präsidentin" and "Leistungssträgerin"? They are fully developed! Honestly. Today we want to let you participate in internals and tell you how such a test series works and how it went with us. The »Komplizin« (accomplice) of the pilot series was torn from our hands. Before, we had already given it to selected testers for 3 months as a prototype. Antje has worn and tested one herself. So much in advance, it works and the soft form is convincing. What hasn't convinced us yet is the material. Our tried and tested tarpaulin material, which works perfectly with all other bags, is not quite as perfect for our "folding bags". This is because the plastic coating is exposed to very high loads at the buckling points.
That's why we decided to manufacture the new range of bags from a new material. It is a super high-quality Cordura in fresh colours with a sensationally kink-resistant coating on the inside. At first we were sceptical, because our tarpaulin has its own beauty and characterizes our bags. We think that the Cordura fits perfectly with the new, softer shape of the bag series. When the first prototype made of this material arrived, we were thrilled.
Our seamstresses in Thuringia are now working at full speed on the cutting and production of the bag bodies from Cordura. We will inform you when they arrive. As a small preview we show you sewing details from the development department. We are very much looking forward to the new family members of the soft bag series, which are fresh in colour as well as soft in form, very light and extremely stable.
Outlook: In search of a material to replace our leather, we finally found it. This will please all leather fans. And also all living creature fans. Because it is a material that is made from the remains of the pineapple leaves. The pineapple fibres are pressed and formed into a stable, soft material. The material is produced completely free of animal suffering and without harmful environmental influences.
