Jackets, vests, coats – wonderfully contemporary, wonderfully warm and animal-free. Nicolas Bargi founded Save the Duck to save geese with its down-free Zeitgeist products.

Everything started with the Munich eco label Thokk Thokk with T-shirts. The characteristic, graphic prints were (and are) printed by hand in Munich.

As the son of one of the oldest shoemaking dynasties in Europe – founded in 1856 by Ferdinand Fischer in Saxony – Sebastian Thies is the sixth generation to develop and design shoes. His weakness?

With the world’s first 2-in-1 shoe, which he developed, he was able to win numerous prizes worldwide and establish his brand internationally.
