YOU sharpens your senses. The salt and pepper grinders by the Solingen company Carl Mertens make spices more touchable as valuable culture goods.
Grains are not locked away, but mix in a washable tissue-bag on the top of the grinder and are great to touch. The textile storage concept makes the original form of the spices more concrete and it connects to traditions of transporting them in bags and pouches. Practical side effect: The refilling of the grinder is fast; afterwards, the fabrics are rolled using a leather strap and close it all with a Chicago button. Then there is the ceramic precision grinder, unfolding the aroma of spice grains, seeds, and salt crystals. It is enclosed in perfectly rolled stainless steel with a finely polished surface – an attractive contrast to simple cotton bags.
