Set against the background of the powerfully flowing Elbe River with its cranes and ships and its seagulls dancing in the wind is the Altona Cruise Center – the perfect setting for the Altonale DESIGNgift Market. Here you will find unusual and sophisticated lifestyle products. Things like bags, clothes, jewellery and other accessories created by local designers and artists. Of course, on the 1st and 2nd of November Pack & Smooch will also be sailing into port here! At our stand we will be offering Hamburg’s locals and visitors from all over the world our Christmas collection. Of course we will have all our usual bestsellers there including our new iPhone 6 cases Elie, Shetland and Kirkby. We will also have our newest model Kingston. Everything in the quality to which you have become accustomed: a combination of high quality Merino wool felt and vegetable-dyed leather. Apart from our carrying bag York, (not yet available online) we will of course have our laptop bags Hampshire and Corriedale available, just in time to keep your notebooks snuggly wrapped up and guarded against the cold winter weather.
In best company: strict criteria laid out by the organisers
With our presence this year at the Altonale DESIGNgift Market we are proud to be part of an anniversary. For the fifth year running the organisers, Marno Happ and Gabriel Krauch, are hosting their pre-Christmas market offering select clothing, jewellery, bags and other accessories, ceramic pottery, printed fabric and interior design products. In order to acquire a much sought after stand where one will be in the best company of like-minded people one needs to fulfill at least one of the following strict critieria laid out by the organisers:
1. Organic raw materials
2. Fair and social
3. Made in Germany
4. Recycled and recyclable
Pack & Smooch can put a tick next to every one of these boxes. For our MacBook sleeves, laptop bags and mobile phone cases we use only high quality, purely natural materials. Our raw wool comes from the Australian Merino sheep and is processed here in Germany to produce a particularly tightly woven felt. The natural leather we use, with its soft surface feel and pleasant aroma, is of the highest quality available on the market. It comes from Bavarian cattle and undergoes a complex vegetable tanning process.
Maritime shopping and quite chilling: perfect for friends of Pack & Smooch
By the way, apart from extravagant and fine design as well as the magnificent view over the Elbe River the altonale DESIGNgift market also has a culinary corner with coffee and cake and a maritime bistro supplied by the Bootshaus. The lounge area has also achieved cult status amongst our visitors as a place to enjoy some turntable music after a successful stroll through the market. So come and join us for some shopping and chilling in the Cruise Center Altona, we are looking forward to your visit!
