  • Luxury For Eternity

    Prantl launches the first accessory collection together with Japanese leather manufacturer Fuji Taka. It takes approximately six hours of manual work, ten different work stages and twenty tools for the making of one of the cardholders, business card cases or wallets. The straight-line silhouettes are characterized by precise craftsmanship, use of finest leather and especially the timeless elegance. One thing is clear: the twelve-part collection, which brings together the signature styles of Prantl and the Japanese leather manufacturer Fuji Taka, is something truly special. It represents luxury on a small scale, which does not impress through an obvious ostentatiousness but rather shines with an elegant restraint. With this debut, the former Bavarian court supplier begins a new journey. For several decades now – in addition to the art of printing with which the Munich brand has made a name for itself – handmade leather goods have been part of the product range. While the company initially concentrated on acquiring foreign brands, it has been producing its own designs, for over ten years, under its own label. Particularly, color-intensive leather accessories – from leather trays to purses. The aspiration: to re-integrate refined opulence back into the everyday life: “We have always tried to provide our clients with a unique product range, which for us, refers to products that are designed for everyday life but they are anything but commonplace. Things which you cannot buy everywhere and which are of an extraordinary quality”, declared Bernd von Stumberg, Managing Director of Prantl. The company is building on this creed, with the designs made in Japan. While there are many competitors that concentrate on...

  • Prantl - History of a bespoke printer

    Fr. Ant. (Franz Anton) Prantl since 1797 is a traditional Munich-based producer of beautiful personal stationery and luxury leather goods which grew in prominence due to its popularity among famous artists and writers such as Thomas and Heinrich Mann, Franz von Stuck, Emil Nolde and Rainer Maria Rilke, all of whom resided in Munich. Along with Pineider in Florence, Benetton in Paris and Smythsons in London, Prantl is one of the oldest companies currently trading to own its own manufacturing plant. We carry out production in our own print workshop located in the suburbs of Munich. Not surprisingly perhaps, Prantl is considered to be the oldest company of its kind still in existence in Germany.

  • The Wedding Salon at The Merrion Hotel

    Mixed weather in Dublin heralded The Wedding Salon at The Merrion Hotel last Saturday, 22nd March but as I arrived the red carpet was being rolled out to welcome the lucky ladies who had been invited to attend. Inside, there was a flurry of activity as one would expect, but everything seemed to be very well organised and progressing efficiently.

    The Merrion is a wonderful Georgian building nestling in the very heart of Dublin on Upper Merrion Street, opposite Government Buildings, and unlike some 5 star luxury hotels, it certainly does not shout its presence with it restrained and dignified facade. Continue reading
