Merz b. Schwanen, since 1911

The roots of Merz b. Schwanen date back to 1911. Balthasar Merz started running the textile manufactory on the Swabian Alb in Germany. By 2011, Gitta & Peter Plotnicki, life- and business partners based in Berlin, re-established the brand after the descendants of the founder had shut down the production. An over 90-year-old henley of the former brand caught the couple's eyes at a flea market in Berlin. Their passion for authentic clothing and their vision to revive the traditional way of textile production to combine it with a modern sustainable approach lead them to the Swabian Alb.

120 years strong, Filson.

Filson, it all started 120 years ago in Nebraska. CC Filson was the adventurous type, people said that he truly inherited his fathers adventurous and pioneering spirit. He loved the outdoors and all it had to offer. After living and working off the land, he eventually moved to settle in the small city of Seattle. The move gave him a new perspective and opened his eyes to what else the world had to offer. This big move happened in the 1890s, which little did he know at the time, was the best timing he could have ever picked. This is because by 97’, the gold rush hit. When this gold rush hit, people flocked up North, but the North came with some hurdles… The weather up North was cold, tough and would test even the most experienced hunters and pioneers. This is where CC Filson made the decision to use his past experiences, his love for the outdoors and his drive for success to create something that no one had done before. Filson was born. Filson used his pioneering personality to trail blaze the clothing industry - to create clothes to not only survive in the harsh weathers, but to thrive. Launching as Alaska clothing and blanket manufacturers, their market was simple it was to target the ‘stampeders to the Klondike Gold Rush.’ The brand became a household name as stories from the North started to be heard.
