The Frankfurt Tip Authors:

Sabina Brauner

Sabina Brauner has been living in the Rhine-Main area for more than 15 years and for the longest time in her desired district of Bornheim "because it connects village, city and conviviality in the most livable sense" for her. Nobody strolls through the world with such open eyes as the native of Lower Saxony, who prefers to share her discoveries with her fellow human beings on the Internet. The American and political scientist founded the blog "So nur in Frankfurt" in 2007 and is also Frankfurt's first over 40 fashion blogger on "Oceanblue Style". Here she writes mainly about lifestyle and fashion.

The true Hessen test: What are coulters?

The true Hessen test: What are coulters?

Yes, what kind of question is that now, many will probably think. Okay. (laughs) It's legitimate. But let's just do the practical test: who knows “Coulter“? Na?

Also, there you go: this is something very nice from Hessen. More precisely, from North Hesse, Gießen. Coulters are among other things quite cuddly quilts or wool blankets. And at resourceful people have come up with something nice and have been producing a piece of home for some time now.

How does that work? In fair production from Germany the designs are strictly limited. On a size of 155 x 200 cm, beautiful ponchos with houndstooth, dishtowels (you can win HERE) or the pillow with pitcher motif, cloth or Goethe's head are created.

The special thing about dishtowels? “Coulter dishtowels“ are really good" - that's what all dry-experienced customers say. Because the dishtowels are huge, made of 100% cotton and woven in slits, one of the oldest and best weaving mills in Hessen that there is: For Driessen.

This means quality with linen yarn used exclusively from European cultivation. Unique processing quality for sewing and hemming as well as washability without colour loss even after years.         

Bestsellers, by the way, are the “Crime Scene Kolter Blanket“ (beautifully contoured with corpse outlineJ) and the frog.  

Who has become curious now, takes part in the Lottery and also looks directly times on the side of Because from the Frankfurt-Kolter with city motive or the Hessen motives in blue-white with gigantic lion I haven't told anything yet!
