Ines was really font of M&M's, especially those with peanuts in the yellow bag.
In fact as long I can remember there was always a big jar with M&M's on the table at the office.
Sometimes when sitting on the couch she threw one at you:
Think there were many peanuts hidden deep down in the couch over the years.
Whenever we had meetings with designers, journalists, stylists, .. the jar would be placed on the table between her and our quests:
"Please have one if you like"
Or she would grab a few and just lay them in front of you.
No cookies with your coffee, instead you would get M&M's.
Everyone in the house became familiar with this and ate along.
When the jar was empty it was refilled with 1 kg of those unhealthy sugar bombs which we now also like.
When the jar was full again the speed of emptying it was pretty amazing, but when there were not many left the pace slowed down until there was only one M&M left.
Who is going to eat that last M&M?
Who is the lucky one?
So we have a abondance of M&M's, in contrast to the availability of Ines' leather gloves.
Sometimes we get the question why some of our gloves are out of stock.
Thats because we think its utterly important to respect the nature and origin of this special material and craft.
Everything should be top notch.
We only produce in small quantities, don't have seasonal collections and when we have sourced the right hides and colors, it all comes together in balance.
Then we start crafting fresh new gloves and add them to the classic collection again, but this can take a few months..
So I want to share with you a list of gloves from our collection of which are only one pair left in a particular size or color.
Maybe there is something that you want, that needs to be owned by you.
Make them yours before they are gone..
Will you be the lucky one?
