Siegmund & Fritz

5th May

Siegmund & Fritz combines locally tanned, quality leather with Harris Tweed® fabric to create entirely handmade & sustainable pieces that last. 

Created in northern Germany in 2015 by former metal worker and graphic designer, Maurice Bock, Siegmund & Fritz was named after his two grandfathers who, in his words, ‘grew up in a time where you couldn’t afford to buy cheap,’ driving his ethos for quality and durability.

After using a weekender bag made from leather and Harris Tweed® fabric for many years, he was inspired to create a range of bags that combined classic designs using these materials for genuine products that stood the test of time.

He says, ‘The huge benefit in using Harris Tweed® fabric for me is the durability, the history and making of the cloth – a perfect match with my designs and philosophy in sustainability…’

His passion for combining these two materials comes from a drive to make his products entirely by hand, and is what he describes as one of the most important parallels between his brand and the ethos of Harris Tweed® fabric – ‘genuine hand(muscle)made.
