"KRONKORKEN TROOPER" / Limited Handcrafted Keychains

We have a new super-limited Teddy Trooper keychain edition available!
Handmade by the one-and-only MUFFIMAN in his infamous "Hexenküchen" (witches' kitchen).
As part of FÖRTRESS' "Italienische Wochen" all Trooper are featuring an ingrained used beer crown-cap from his last travel to Italy.
Some caps are those "real italian" PERONI ones but also some are these non-thrilling HEINEKEN one's... (sometimes this is the secure pick at the bar! Sorry, i know they are a bit lame!... But those are the rare ones! And the star on the crown cap is just fitting nicely to the Trooper's engraved star on the helmet!)

"Winternotprogramm" / Charity Print / Update

So here is our regular receipt of our fundraising for Hamburg's homeless winter shelter charitable society end of last year. By offering the limited colab print "Winternotprogramm" by HEIS and FÖRTRESS we collected a total of 1.025,57 € in netto, wich we donated to the "Förderverien Winternotprogramm für Obdachlose e.V." right away.

Thanx to everybody who supported the project and helped us to help!
Also again a big "Thank You! to our partners at IGPA Hamburg for supporting us with the print and paper!
