The fourth generation workshop began creating objects in the style of this ashtray after Auböck spent time learning at the original Bauhaus in Weimar, working under master craftsman Johannes Itten. This item evokes an odd contrast as it feels almost organic because of it's fluid shape, however it's every bit industrial. Although it's designed for a smoker this could be used purely as a sculptural object within a studio or living area also.
Our bags are hand crafted using genuine leather. Like all natural materials, leather reacts to the atmosphere. Humidity rain and sunlight can damage leather. Should a slight white coating appear on surface of leather, it can easily be removed using a dry cloth. Should leather get wet, absorb the water immediately with a dry cloth. Overexposure to sunlight can stain or alter the color of the leather.
