Daniel Heer - Manufaktur HEER

Thank you to the lovely Daniel Heer from Manufaktur HEER.

//The craft of making Rosshaarmatratzen, horsehair mattresses, has been in Swiss artisan Daniel Heer’s family since 1907, when his great-grandfather Benedikt Heer opened a saddlery in Lucerne, Switzerland. Four generations on, continuing the tradition passed down to him from his father, Daniel Heer is still making the original horsehair mattresses at Manufaktur HEER in Berlin.//
