The best is worth it. We only use Merino Wool Felt because it is the highest quality felt available. Our Merino Wool Felt is made exclusively at two factories in Bavaria, where they have been perfecting their technique for over 100 years. We use OEKO-TEX® dyes on all of our products, making sure they are non-toxic and free of harmful chemicals.
Our Commitment to Sustainability
The Graf Lantz philosophy is classic and simple: Use quality materials and waste as little as possible. Striving to be as sustainable as possible in our manufacturing practice is something we take very seriously. We work hard to ensure every last scrap and off-cut is utilized somewhere in our product line. This follows our ethos that true sustainability begins with the choices we make every day.
Cleaning & Care
Functionality is at the core of what we do, so you can rest assure that all Graf Lantz materials are very, very low maintenance (we didn’t choose them for nothing).
We use vegetable tanned hides which means our tanning process is free of artificial chemicals products. The vegetable tanning process is one of the oldest methods used to create high-quality leather goods. Hides are soaked in a solution of plant matter (mostly tree bark), which naturally pulls water out and preserves the leather. This process takes up to two months and is watched over closely by skilled artisans.
