Travel with KAPITALGOODS workingcopy
Understated, timeless, well-crafted. One could easily describe our small but personal selection of goods with these three words; basically we just want to bring you goods that we appreciate and believe you would too.
Mostly handcrafted by traditional artisans with decades of experience in family (-run) workshops that eschew volume for quality, the unyielding focus on craftsmanship comes to fore when you consider the 100 over steps necessary in making a single Anderson's belt or the painstaking process of handpainting glass enamel of each intricate design on a pair of Codis Maya cufflinks.

To consider these elaborate processes as unnecessary - vis-a-vis automation and mass-production - is to overlook the time-honoured methods that have been refined and passed on from generation to generation. We want to celebrate the craft of the people responsible for producing such beautiful products.
Thanks for taking a look, whether you're passing time on your flight or the lounge.

We celebrate the craftsmanship of our goods and the heritage behind our extraordinary brands; we believe in goods built to last and perhaps, to be handed down to the next generation. is because we're enamoured with the idea of craftsmanship and ‘slow fashion’, thus our slogan:
Whether it's the 100 over steps necessary in making a single Anderson's belt or the painstaking process of handpainting each pair of Codis Maya glass enamel cufflinks, the unyielding focus on craftsmanship comes right to the fore. Such efforts rely on traditional artisans with decades of experience in family-run or small workshops, ensuring that craftsmanship is not simply a buzzword but a fundamental tenet in the manufacturing process.
The glass enamel cufflinks, Codis Maya's signature collection, best embody the spirit and endeavor of craftsmanship. More than just handpainting, skilled artisans with more than three decades of experience have to first carve the initial mold design by hand. The intricacies could possibly be replicated by machine but even so, such exquisite skill is testament to the dexterity and artistry of the artisan.
From the natural look of full grain, vegetable-tanned leather to the refined elegance of hallmarked sterling silver, our brands have chosen to craft their products from these exceptional materials because they believe in using the best to bring out the beauty of their products.
For instance, full grain and top grain leather is but merely a difference in millimetres yet full grain leather has that much more natural beauty and is more hard-wearing than top grain leather. If you appreciate the natural patination of your leather goods, full grain leather wears in better with time as well.
