A Kind of Guise was born from the idea of creating products that combine current design with highest demands to quality in terms of both production and the materials used. From the very start we have believed that these products should be produced in limited numbers and entirely in our home country of Germany. Since our beginnings in 2009, we have constantly been searching for small but highly skilled local manufacturers, who help us turn our vision into reality. By now, we work with more than 16 different domestic businesses, each carefully chosen for their specialisation in products that make up the spectrum of our collections. We appreciate the fact that all of them share our belief in keeping up the tradition of “Made in Germany”, quality products. Immediate face to face communication, reliability in experienced craftsmanship and close distances not only make us feel proud of what we do, but also bring joy to every day we start anew. Additionally, it is the materials that we use which define the quality of our collections. We pay utmost care in hand-selecting premium fabrics from weavers with a long standing tradition and well-known reputation. Previous collections included fabrics such as Scottish Harris Tweed, Swiss EtaProof® cotton, Austrian Loden-Steiner wool, Steiff furs and many more. This mix of our designs, selected materials and craftsmanship is essential to giving each item a distinct and original look, feel and functionality.
