GROTKOP COLLECTION stands for a combination of design and craftsmanship. The collection idea is focusing on felted fashion pieces and leather goods.
Only carefully selected, high quality materials are used to finish the products of GROTKOP COLLECTION, trying to be as concious as possible about the sources at the same time.
For the accessories all leathers are certified to European standards for tanning and dying. The cattle herds are mostly from Germany or Europe. Please refer to Materials for detailed information on each leather used in the collection.
Grotkop Collection felt is something special. Through an own developed process, initially for industrial machines, we can play with graphic ideas within the boundaries of that process. Developed in her Masters Studies at he Heriot Watt University, School of Textiles, Scotland, the Designer of GROTKOP COLLECTION received two innovation awards on wool in 2005 and 2011.
Only the finest merino wool is used for GROTKOP COLLECTION handmade felt. Eco friendly dyed, following the Öko-Tex-Standard100.
The complete production, like felting and manufacturing the final piece, is inhouse, made in the north of Germany, just outside Hamburg.
"The name GROTKOP COLLECTION comes from my grandparents, the "Grotkop's". Both showed me different textile handcrafts and techniques already at a young age. Since I remember I was always in love with textiles. This is my THANKS, to take them with me on my creative journey."
