An overview of the sustainability features of our products:
We produce in small runs in order to optimise our resource use. Our mountain wear is signed and numbered, which means you can check out that we walk the talk..
All the fabrics we use are certified OEK-OTEX® STANDARD 100 and frequently bluesign ® This guarantees very high quality as well as fabrics free from harmful chemicals. > OEKOTEX®
Our apparel is made to a very high standard[> Handcrafted] so we can guarantee superb durability. No Fast Fashion here.
All of our products are PFC free: in fact, our membranes always have been. Since 2018 this has also been true for our DWR (Durable Water Repellent).

100 % CO2 free website & online shop
Our web server is powered by 100% hydropower and is located in Germany. In addition, we have developed an Energy Save concept for a sustainable web presence. Learn more > CO2 Free Website

In 2018 we decided on a flight-free business model, based on the fact that in the years between 2010 and 2018 we had already reduced our flying activity down to a total of 10.000 kms
Each year we offset the complete CO2 emisions of our teams through Atmosfair. This is around 88.000 kgs, which would be the equivalent to the CO2 emissions produced by driving 440.000 kilometres!
Indirect emissions - not owned
Overview of sustainability features in production and supply chain:
100 % Handcrafted in Croatia
We have been producing high-quality functional apparel in our Croatian production facility since 2008, where we have focussed on similar high-standards in our working environment. Our work-place sets itself apart through the facts that it is oriented around our team (and not around the machines); that we follow environmental requirements (such as cleaning ink waste-water, and the sole use of OEKO-TEX® certified inks), as well as, from a social perspective, high remuneration for good performance. >handcrafted
Materials from Europe
Our fabrics and accessories come, for the most part, from suppliers based in Europe. Some of our suppliers, without whom we could not operate, are outside the EU but we know them very well. They are also certified e.g bluesign®, OEKO-TEX®, RESPONSIBLE WOOL STANDARD
100 % recycled packaging
All of our product and transport packaging is made from recycled plastic or paper.
Being so close to our production site means that we have very short delivery distances. Product deliveries from Croatia to Munich are organised in a smart way with combined shipments, and we offset every delivery kilometer travelled with Atmosfair.
Using DHL’s GOGREEN means we actively neutralise the green-house gases produced in shipping our goods. Which also means that your item reaches you in a climate neutral way.
