Regular customers will know that we are great fans of Jakob Schlaepfer’s amazing fabric creations. So as part of our 30th anniversary celebrations we are honoured to have Peter Friederich, Sales Director of Jakob Schlaepfer, come and talk to our customers and share his thoughts on the world of international couture. What a coup!
The talk is 26 May 6:30pm – 8:30pm at our shop. Numbers are very limited so call to book your place.
After over 110 years Jakob Schlaepfer is just as creative as it has ever been: the company is still producing something in St Gallen, Switzerland, which no-one else anywhere in the world is able to match. Jakob Schlaepfer holds a unique place at the top of the world of fashion and textiles.
They design and produces over 2500 designs per year for the Haute Couture and Prèt-à-Porter Collections of renowned international Fashion Houses.
With a feel for the spirit of the times, the design team at Jakob Schlaepfer under the leadership of Art Director Martin Leuthold in St Gallen creates trendsetting fabrics that inspire fashion designers, architects, interior designers and an exclusive clientèle.
The impetus comes not only from new ideas in colour and design; it is also triggered by continuous technical progress. Jakob Schlaepfer is an “industrial manual manufacturer”, combining traditional embroidery techniques with constantly developing know-how: an ever-increasing pool of ideas which Jakob Schlaepfer draws on in order to keep up the momentum in textile design.
