DUKES Finest Artisan manufactures premium handmade leather accessories since 2008. Since the beginning these pieces are a part of our collection – time is running – nearly for ten years now.
According to traditional craftsmanship, the leather is embossed by hand, studded, decorated with exotic leather and painted by the most sophisticated artists. Over the last years Ursula “Uschi” Klein came over to our store when we had events or for special occasions and she customized DUKES belts and other goods for our clients. It is always a pleasure to see her painting and creating live and direct.
The pieces impress with their special design, high artisanal quality and inimitability. Original vintage basics and finest, vegetable-tanned leather are extravagantly finished by hand and turned into unique pieces of art.
Ursula Klein and Michael Herzog, the founders of Dukes Finest Artisan, have created and cultivated this philosophy. Their original vintage leather products come from a global network of vintage aficionados, from Los Angeles to Budapest. Rare and precious pieces, selected mainly from old military stocks and vintage markets, are cleaned and treated with natural oils and lotions and finally receive their exquisite artisanal and artistic touch.
Contemporary historical topics, native tribes, ethnic motifs, folklore, pop and street art serve as sources of inspiration for their pieces and are matched with each other in the collections. We are proud that DUKES did some special B74 stuff – check it out!
