Modastrass has a history of working with top designers, but this collaboration marks the company’s first foray into equestrian sports accessories. The Swarovski Elements supplier was approached by FLECK to supply the crystals for the company’s premium horse riding whips and provide advice on their application.
"Hobby craft applications are very different to professional applications and for a product of this sort, we needed a finish that was as durable as it is elegant. Our consultants were on hand to provide Fleck with specialist advice," explained Modastrass junior key account manager Klaus Jaeger.
The whips, which can be used for dressage and other horse riding events, will be displayed alongside other products from FLECK’s collection and are expected to drive demand for unique riding accessories from equestrian trade visitors to the event.
Commenting on the showpiece whip, FLECK’s Managing Director, Rudi Maisack said, "We’re delighted to work with Modastrass and Swarovski Element’s luxury brand image perfectly suits our premium whips.
"We expect the Fleck whip made with Swarovski Elements to attract a lot of attention at the show."
FLECK GmbH & Co. has a tradition of creating innovative and decorative horse whips from its workshop in Schwarzach, Germany for over 140 years. The company is pleased to add crystal embellishment to its manufacturing techniques, which includes leather braiding, thread winding, staining and lacquering.
