The Classic from the Elegance collection represents one of the fundamental elements of the Rubis company: Made in Switzerland. The hole pattern not only underlines the design, but also recalls the Emmental Swiss cheese , the same pattern that the national team of Swiss ski racers wore as an outfit. The design of the Elegance collection is under international patent protection. We recommend that you always use the protective cap provided when storing your Rubis tweezers after use. Every pair of Rubis tweezers is handmade and although the tips are durable, their functionality may be compromised if the tweezers accidentally falls to the ground.
