Last week the 6th edition of the Selvedge Run was a huge success. The location of the Selvedge Run switched to a new location. The new location, The Marshall-Haus, is located in the West part of Berlin. The Marshall-Haus is an architectural location designed by Bruno Grimmek. This unique building was opened in 1950 for the German Industries Exhibition. It was used by the USA as its pavilion. It has enjoyed protection as a listed building since 1988 and was re-opened for the IFA in October 2008 by Messe Berlin following extensive renovation.

Launch of our new products
During the show we launched our new upcoming slippers, made of natural vegetable tanned leather. We also launched our new leather belts with full brass buckles which are soon available in the colours natural, cognac, brown and black. See here how the brass buckles are made. We also gave a very early sneak preview of our new upcoming project: our worker boots. Our upcoming worker boots, made with the Goodyear Welted construction, are a perfect addition to our existing handmade boots. We will lauch these boots within a few months in natural and brown leather. Keep an eye on this one as they’re very special!
