Meet our Artisans - Handcrafted German Christmas Decorations by Christian Ulbricht

In the lead up to Christmas, we wanted to showcase some of our German artisans and today, you are in for a real treat! 

When Kristie and I first decided on this crazy idea of bringing German Christmas decorations to Australia, one of the first artisans ww contacted was Christian Ulbricht and the reason for this was one little Moose that we found in Hamburg. 

Adorable and beautifully made...

When we first saw this little moose, it was love at first sight! we immediately contacted Christian Ulbricht and brought in our first small range of their items. They were a smash hit!

Fast forward five years and we are now the exclusive distributor for Christian Ulbricht for Australia and New Zealand. Having visited their workshop in Seiffen more than once and each time we do, we are always greeted as friends. It is a wonderful way to do business!

In commemoration of our five years' in partnership, Ulbricht have re-released a very special Premium 'Aussie' Nutcracker just for us!

Wood cannot be more beautiful...

We love their catchphrase.

From humble beginnings in 1928, the Ulbricht's have become synonymous with quality and craftsmanship. Run by Christian's grandchildren now, this small company has a cult following, particularly with their highly collectible, limited edition nutcrackers.

Their range of Christmas gnomes and incense burners are some of our most popular items. All made from sustainably sourced wood and finished to the highest standard, a Christmas Ulbricht piece is a bit of Christmas magic that will last for many, many years to come!

Why we love Ulbricht

Decorations from Christian Ulbricht have a nostalgic charm all of their own. We love their use of premium colours, textures and fabrics and the premium finishing touches they put on each and every piece.

Their Christmas tree decorations are amazing but, if you are looking for something truly special for your home this year, you cannot go wrong with a premium Incense Burner or Nutcracker from our Ulbricht range.
I hope this little profile of one of our artisans has highlighted to you the care we take in sourcing the very best seasonal decorations available. There is a story behind every piece that we sell and that is something very special indeed.
Until next time
