Räth globes - hand-laminated
Räthgloben Verlag from Leipzig has been combining traditional expertise with the latest technologies since 1917. The result is something to be proud of.
To make a hand-laminated globe requires a lot of manual work and intuition.
The basis are 12 elliptical segments made of tear-resistant special paper.
They are printed with cartographic data on which the surface of the earth is depicted true to length, area and angle.
Hand-lamination is the process of attaching the segments to the sphere. These are cut out. In the second step, a special glue is applied to make the paper stretchy and flexible. The correct application and gluing together requires experience, a good eye and a lot of sensitivity. After the precise inspection, the globe is given time to dry before it is finished with clear varnish. This layer protects your globe and makes the colours shine.
Hand lamination is an old and original craft. We want this traditional knowledge to be preserved for a long time to come. Every hand-laminated globe is unique. A unique favourite piece.
Whether this globe becomes a fine, elegant table object or a standing globe, you decide.
