Packaging

Where do the gift boxes and shipping packaging come from?

The boxes for our boutonnières are made in Berlin Neukölln by a Berlin family business founded in 1869 as a hat box manufacturer. The discerning customers of these fine cardboard boxes included numerous Berlin handicraft businesses, plasterers and specialty shops for linen and fabrics. Today the fifth generation is already responsible for the appropriate "packaging" of a wide variety of articles. The gift boxes for ours suspenders come from a company in Treviso, Italy, where our suspenders are also made by hand. The boxes from our manufacturer 'Calabrese dal 1924' originate as well as the beautiful bow ties, cravats and pocket squares from Naples.

The shipping boxes and packing materials are included Herr von Welt are manufactured in Germany and bought regionally. In accordance with the Packaging Act, we are registered in the packaging register and licensed by "Der Grüne Punkt", where we pay a disposal fee for the packaging we put into circulation. In addition, we always strive to avoid unnecessary packaging. The filling material usually comes from the deliveries of goods that we receive ourselves.

Materials & patterns

What materials come with Herr von Welt for use?

The cradle of the jacquard loom is in Lyon. It was here that Joseph-Marie Jacquard developed his revolutionary loom a few years after the French Revolution, which replaced the previously used roller with a punch card control. Punch cards now reproduced the pattern and were changed in the loom as desired. Endless patterns, no matter how complicated, could be produced mechanically. As early as 1812 there were over 18,000 such jacquard looms in France alone. The pioneering process is regarded as the forerunner of modern digital technology: the punch cards from back then are today blanks and modern jacquard machines work with up to 24,000 such miracle pieces. The result: high-quality and complex, finely woven fabrics of the best quality like those at Herr von Welt to be used again and again.

Harris tweed is a particularly high-quality and robust fabric that is exclusively produced in the Outer Hebrides. This picturesque archipelago, also known as the Western Isles, is located up to 50 kilometers off the north-west coast of Scotland and, in addition to a manageable number of islanders (and their sheep), is home to a large number of small huts, the so-called weaving sheds, with no less small looms. The details of the manufacture of Harris Tweed are regulated by law: According to this, it is a material hand-woven in their homes by the inhabitants of the islands of Lewis, Harris, Uist and Barra from pure new wool, which has been dyed and spun by hand in the Outer Hebrides. The material, which lovers of autumn tweed jackets are familiar with, is occasionally perceived as a little "scratchy" by sensitive men. That is why there are also the softer variants. Mostly from weaving mills in England or Italy. These fabrics are also called tweed, but do not come from distant, picturesque islands. At Herr von Welt Tweed is used at men's scarves and occasionally also with suspenders.

In England they are called pinstripes or chalkstripes; those pinstripes or chalk stripes that are indispensable on a gentleman's suit in Mayfair or in the City of London. So the epitome of the British gentleman with an umbrella, charm and bowler hat (which, by the way, is actually called Bowler Hat or has simply been called Coke since 1849)? Not quite. When thinking of pinstripes, the American thinks more of Al Capone and Chicago. Or baseball. Or both: the Chicago Cubs' uniforms have been finely pin-striped since 1907. Numerous other baseball clubs followed the successful team. At least fashionable. Conclusion: Pinstripes (in Austria, by the way, pinstripes) are by no means just a part of the uniform business life or fashionable detail of the gangster of the world, but rather an important part of men's fashion. At Herr von Welt used as men's scarf just like suspenders.

Many of our vintage cufflinks or brooches are made from Gold doublé: With up to 120 tons of pressure and almost 850 degrees, a robust and permanent gold plating is created. This mechanical gold plating is generally considered to be more abrasion-resistant than galvanic gold plating. Rolled gold doublé is a mark of quality. The term "doublé" (English: rolled gold, French: or laminé) has been protected since 1923. According to DIN 8237, the fineness of the overlay may not be specified. This would be in contradiction to the Stamp Act. And who could contradict this?

The elastic bands that are used in the manufacture of suspenders the amount of elastodiene is decisive for the elasticity - and thus the return to the original state after stretching. These are very fine, elastic threads made of polyisoprene (synthetic or natural rubber). Here, single threads (monofilament) or several threads are bundled (multifilament) and thus, processed with polyester, ensure the required elasticity of your Suspenders. The proportion of elastodiene in elastic suspenders is usually around 18-20 percent.

Our sunglassesn are handcrafted from cellulose acetate in the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Dolomites, in one of the most beautiful mountain landscapes in the world. The traditional Mazzucchelli company, originally a manufacturer of buttons made of real horn and tortoiseshell, has been producing the (by no means synthetic) material made of wood and cotton fibers since 1849. Acetate frames are real all-rounders: skin-flattering, breathable and known for their wide range of colors. Ours are designed and processed Sunglasses then at Lunette's collection in Berlin.
