Love of Heritage & Exploration

The collection has its roots in founder Haring Piebenga’s love of the heritage pieces which he discovered in antique auctions. An explorer’s pocket compass that he purchased particularly fired up his imagination and he couldn't stop thinking about the far corners of the planet that he could reach using this special piece. This compass and the other wonderful artefacts that he had uncovered led him to recreate the originals in amazing detail for other people to enjoy.
