“After having spent 24 years in New York in the fashion business and having worked with manufactures all over the world, I wanted to focus on working with artisans to produce Lutz Morris. It has always been important to me to know under which conditions things are being made, who is making them and how people are being treated.”
We didn’t want to work with big factories in far off places, but with small family-run workshops where we would know everyone personally and where individual attention would be given to every single piece.
This fulfilled our mission to create a timeless product that would last for years not seasons, a product made consciously and with purpose that anyone could feel good about purchasing. Our research brought us to Tina Lutz Morris’ native Germany with its centuries-old tradition of beautifully handcrafted leather goods.
Germany’s exceptional leather manufacturing is something not well known beyond its borders. We saw an opportunity to utilize the timeless skills and quality workmanship as well as to foster and preserve what is a slowly disappearing craft.
