We are crazy about all things leather. The smell of a newly crafted piece of leather is so much more than the novelty of it. The smell stays in your memory for years to come.
In a recent episode of the Gentleman's journal podcast I recently (re)discovered Ettinger. A typical British brand. Their product range goes from wallets for him to travel bags for her.
How it started
In 1934 Gerry Ettinger started the company in London and started out as a film producer. Being from German descent and having that sense of quality and durability he quickly acquired clients such as Harrod's, Asprey and Fortnum and Mason.
Till this day, his eldest son Robert is in charge of the company, holding high the family values.
Next to the range of products they also provide a bespoke service, engraving initials and even company logo's.
1) Put on a clean cloth and wipe onto the leather. Don't put too much on.
2) Make circles while applying with the cloth.
3) Leave for 15 minutes.
4) Put on second layer to your liking or apply wax if appropriate
