Cape Cobra Crocodile Small Top Handle Kelly Bag

It was at this time Lothar first met Denise, an Egyptian born teacher of a Franco Italian mother and Lebanese father. Two months later, after numerous picnics along the Nile, Lothar traditionally requested Denise’s hand in marriage. They were married on June 1957, as partners that would go through life together, and so they would for forty-two years. They were later blessed with two sons, Robert and Richard, and twin daughters, Nicole and Christine.

In May 1962, after the revolution motivated many Europeans to leave Egypt. The Schafer family moved to Germany before relocating to the Lebanon. “You don’t know what you can do until it is expected from you” says Denise. The Lebanon offered a kind life and Denise’s Lebanese father offered a perfect partnership. “Cordoba” was born, named after the Spanish city which became known for its quality leather. Many of the Egyptian leather craftsmen followed Lothar to the Lebanon, due to his kind and caring character. Collectively they had incredible skills and knowledge, an appetite for life and a genuine care for people. These attributes formed the corner stones of the business.
