WAY OF WORKING

“Is it even possible to do anything at all with this material?� YACHTING

Stingray, parchment, linen, eelskin, tree bark: These are no everyday materials and working with them requires a great deal of skill and know-how. Some of these materials can only be procured in small quantities. The materials are exclusive and intricate, and so too are the products that they are turned into.

14 15


the highest

Form of

INDIVIDUALITY IS

CREATIVITY.

“HOW ABOUT SHAVING OFF ANOTHER TENTH OF A MILLIMETRE?” CONSUMER GOODS

The leather is fitted into the Sterling Silver body of the pen with precision down to the last millimetre. The stitching is done by hand with accurately controlled thread tension, and the seam runs perfectly. Precision preparatory work at the development stage is crucial for the finished product. Eissmann Individual maintains a constant dialogue with the customer throughout every development phase.


WAY OF WORKING

“COVER A COMPONENT MEASURING MORE THAN 5 METERS IN LENGTH?” AVIATION

When we work on aircraft components they are generally very large. However, customers still demand the same quality as with smaller items. In order to satisfy these requirements it is essential to know precisely how the exclusive material in question will behave when used on a large scale. Those involved also need absolute precision, plenty of patience and attention to detail.
