Consulting & Solutions

  1. In its core the company remains a full-service supplier for high-quality branded goods. As described in detail on our website, we develop, produce and deliver your products packaged and labeled to your warehouse.
  2. Sokrates Design GmbH will establish its brand TORO VERDE est. 2022 in the D-A-CH countries. It is a collection that stands for demanding and responsibly acting companies as well as people and which was designed as such.
  3. In addition to the main focuses of the company, Mr. Horvath, manager and company founder of Sokrates Design GmbH, will offer his professional experience from over forty years of working in the field of consulting and solutions.


Regarding point 3.

Sokrates Design GmbH has been offering consulting for companies in the leather goods industry since 2021 – including consulting for companies who wish to start their own collection. The consultation covers the following areas:

  • Product development of small leather goods, business- and high-end products (iPhone/iPad cases etc.)
  • Production support as well as technical support regarding the process – both within the customer’s own company
  • Training and promotion of fine bag-makers, stitchers and punchers in the partner company – the focus is on the sensitisation and training of the employees so that they can meet the high quality requirements of your product when it is implemented
  • Advice regarding the manufacturing of precision tools from Germany
  • Technical and professional support regarding the implementation of prototypes
  • Product optimisation of existing items
  • Accompanying the first production batches on site in the production facility (“upscaling”)
  • Support for realising the implementation of the products and collections by established, international partners (production facilities, tanneries, metal manufacturers for metal fittings, etc.)
  • Procurement of all necessary materials including packaging
  • Advice regarding the entire supply chain
  • Project management
  • Quality control

Upon request, my company will support you as an innovative partner in developing your brand design and, together with you, will develop an individual collection for your brand based on the initial ideas, drafts and designs.

We offer support in the development of your company logo, as well as personalised metal fittings and are happy to work out ideas with our contacts in the creative world for your planned brand presence.

Our industry-specific consulting offers advantages over the competing companies which often come from outside of the industry. We have been cooperating with companies within the leather goods industry worldwide for decades and are exceptionally well connected. Our experience as a full-service supplier for international brands in the luxury goods segment and the automotive industry for the manufacturing of small leather goods, handbags and luggage, predestines us as a competent partner for your projects.

Consulting in the Modern Everyday Life of the Leather Goods Industry

Over the past 20 years, competent consulting has developed into an important segment with in the leather goods industry. Nowadays, experienced specialists with excellent expertise are difficult to find in all areas of the labor market. Due to the relocation of large production capacities to China, India and Vietnam in the last few decades, as well as the closure of all large production companies with in the German-speaking countries, the profession and qualification as a master craftsman or leather goods technician no longer had a future. Therefore, it is hard to find fine bag makers with many years of experience. Today, however, especially at a time of global insecurities and unstable supply chains, many productions are being shifted back to Europe. Therefore, competent minds are increasingly being sought out for the industry.

Consulting & Solutions by Sokrates Design GmbH kicks in here and closes this gap.
