Ettinger takes great pride in its craftspeople. Among the last to still make leather goods in the UK, the quality of our goods and attention to detail are paramount to our success. We continuously improve our quality control to ensure the highest standards throughout the production process.

It is no wonder, then, that it takes at least 5 years to fully train a new Ettinger craftsperson and that, collectively, we have over 600 years manufacturing experience!
