The Graupners are based in a town called Crottendorf, at the southern end of the Erzgebirge Mountains in Germany. Ronald and Kordula , along with their daughter Elisabeth are some of the nicest people you will ever meet! They also make some of the most beautiful decorations around!
What is their secret?
Nostalgic yet modern designs Clean lines and soft tones give Graupner decorations a modern feel. Their 'fairytale' quality though is so nostalgic... like a perfect childhood Christmas memory.
Natural colours. The Graupners have created their own unique dying process to ensure that the application of color enhances the natural grain of the wood. Additional delicate brushstrokes add the finishing touches. Facial features on an angel, whiskers on kittens.
Sustainable Production. The Graupner’s take great pride in sourcing sustainable hardwoods such as maple, birch and cottonwood from the Erzgebirge region. They also utilize local spruce, meaning that many of their decorations are actually made from Christmas trees!
