FREITAG Store Munich: Renovated to repair

For more than 20 years, FREITAG has been giving the waste of European transit traffic - discarded truck tarpaulins - a second life as functional, robust bags and accessories. After Hamburg, Cologne, Berlin and Frankfurt, the Zurich bag manufacturer also came to their nearest German city. The fifth store in Germany therefore bears the number one in its address. In the corner building «Am Einlaß 1», the entire model range and, with over 2000 bags on 170m2, the largest selection of FREITAG one-offs awaits the people of Munich.

At FREITAG, we’ve always carried out repairs as a matter of course. Virtually since our first bag, we’ve been doing all we can to extend their lives with a range of dedicated services. Of course, we know it’s more sustainable to repair as locally as possible. So, during the renovation of the FREITAG store in Munich, we decided to set up a bag repair workshop rather than install additional sales shelves. The new department is framed by the same yellow industrial mesh found in the Zurich factory and equipped with everything needed to carry out professional repairs on FREITAG bags. Now, inside or out, you have a clear view of work in progress in the new section. 

Right now, our tarp surgeon Pauline is waiting to carry out repairs on bags dropped off at the store. She fixes everything from torn-out Velcro fasteners, zippers and broken buckles to holes large and small in the tarps. 

The fact that you can also walk around in circles in the store with its many winding rooms is something FREITAG is especially thrilled about - after all, the company's credo is: We think and act in cycles.
