/ Please, describe yourself in just 3 words?

Passionate. Creative. Laid-back.


/ What do you do for a living?

I’m a self-taught leather craftsman and co-owner of Dahlman, one of the world’s oldest leather goods companies dating back to 1807. It started out as a side project while I was working in IT. I needed some kind of creative output and wanted to do something with my hands. When I started working with leather, I instantly fell in love with the material.

/ Your style in short?

My classic. Formal workwear. Details.


/ What do you look for when shopping clothes?

Quality is super important to me. I work as a craftsman and therefore, I feel that my clothes need to be of the same quality as the products I make. The same goes for the style. I tend to buy clothes that will last for many years, favouring classic items rather than jumping on fast-changing trends.

/ What’s your SELECTED story?

To me, it’s always a pleasure to be part of a story that relates to passion and creativity. It’s such a big part of my life and I love the fact that SELECTED is helping to spread this positive energy.
