Things to know about Vaude

Vaude was founded in 1974 by Albrecht von Dewitz. The name is an acronym of the first letters of his last name "von Drewitz". Being a passionate mountaineer himself, he actually wanted to produce nothing but functional mountaineering equipment, which was hard to come by in the 70s. But the company quickly became one of the most successful European manufacturers of outdoor clothing and mountain sports equipment. 

Vaude clothing is eco-friendly and fair

As of today, the company has won multiple awards for its persisting commitment to preserving the environment, sustainable business practices and carbon-neutral production. In general, Vaude is keen on making the world a little bit better and therefore tries to produce its products in the most environmentally friendly way possible. One example of this is the in-house repair workshop the company offers, where even older products can be repaired even after the warranty period has expired and will be returned to the customer afterwards. As you see, at Vaude, the durability of products is just as important as its functionality and design.

Since 2010, Vaude is a member of the non-profit organization Fair Wear Foundation, where several well-known companies team up in order to fight for better working conditions in the global textile industry. Fair working conditions are not only implicit at Vaude’s main site in Tutzingen, Germany, but in other European countries or in the Far East. Various eco-labels and certifications confirm cycling clothing that is produced sustainably eco-friendly raw materials or recycled materials.
