How do the MEISTERKLUFT designs fit?
In general the designs (excluding the Mini Collection) are quite figure-hugging and in addition are made with a non-stretchy material. If you are unsure as to what size you need we would advise you to go for a slightly bigger size. Information on the measurements used for our hand-crafted designs can be found in the online shop.
What materials are used for the MEISTERKLUFT designs?
Black cord made of 100% cotton is an important element of the traditional carpenter’s outfit and is thus the main material used in the Classic and Mini Collections. The MEISTERKLUFT cord is, however, diagonally ribbed and noticeably finer than the cord of the traditional carpenter’s outfit. The Style Collection is made mostly made from cotton in a salt/pepper look.
The blouses in all Collections are made with 100% cotton. The articles are lined with viscose or a viscose mix. The appliqués and piping are made of real or imitation leather and the buttons are mother-of-pearl. More detailed information on the materials used for each design can be found in the individual product description in the online shop.
Are the designs also available in other materials?
Items from the Classic Collection can also be made using the salt/pepper-look cotton of the Style Collection, and vice versa. Other materials or colours can unfortunately not be offered at this time. However, please do not hesitate to contact us with your individual requests or suggestions. I will do our best to accommodate you.
Can MEISTERKLUFT make items to measure?
Generally not, however exceptions can be made! Please not that one or more fittings are usually necessary in order for a custom-made item to be made, a service which incurs surcharge. Customers should also note that custom-made items cannot be returned.
Are custom designs and individualisations possible?
Please ask! I will do my best to accommodate you!
Where are the MEISTERKLUFT articles produced?
In a very unusual place for the German fashion industry – Berlin! Why search further afield when what you are looking for is right under your nose?! Nevertheless, proximity is not the only reason I have entrusted The Fashitects with the production of my designs. The excellent quality and solid work they offer is visible in each and every MEISTERKLUFT item.
Why does delivery take 3-4 weeks?
The MEISTERKLUFT designs are not pre-manufactured but are made to order, hence the 3-4 week delivery time. I am confident, however, that in most cases you will not have to wait that long for your order to arrive.
Why are many items not suitable for dry-cleaning?
Cord is, in general, a very robust material and all the other cotton materials used can be washed in domestic washing machines. However, in the case of the lined items, and the items with mother-of-pearl buttons, washing machines can cause damage. It is thus best to leave the cleaning to the professionals!
Where else can I purchase MEISTERKLUFT designs?
All collections are currently available on Nelou.com and DaWanda.com.
How will my order be sent?
All orders are sent by DHL to the address specified by the customer. You will receive confirmation of dispatch by email.
What should I do if the item doesn’t fit?
Customers have the right to return all non-custom-made items within 14 days. Please see the General Terms and Conditions for more information. Should you wish to wish to exchange the item for a different size/model please get in touch, I will do my best to find a solution!
