Everything has been revolving around bags here since 2010. Sven, Flo, Oli and Juliaan started with ergobag, an ergonomic school backpack for primary schoolchildren which can be individually adapted and is sustainably produced.
Things have moved on and in addition to ergobag backpacks are now available for all different ages and uses. The Affenzahn, satch, AEVOR, pinqponq and AEP brands and the traditional Offermann label offer a diverse selection of bags for specific needs – from baby to business. The name has changed too and ergobag GmbH has become FOND OF BAGS.
What does FOND OF BAGS represent?
The seal of quality for bag lovers. All the products we work on boast excellent credentials in terms of quality, function, design and responsible manufacturing practices.
A fantastic idea!
In 2011 and 2013 we won the Red Dot Design Award, and in 2012 we were prize-winners in "Germany – Land of Ideas" and in the "enable2start" business plan competition, and finalists for the "Deutscher Gründerpreis" German start-up award. In 2015 we won the "German Design Award" for the satch brand and in 2015 the "Beste neue Marke" best new brand award for the ergobag. Recently, in 2016 we won the "German Sustainability Award" for FOND OF BAGS. Long may our success continue!
What defines our team is having a close look at everything to gain a deep understanding of our supply chain and the people behind it. That's why we made a trip to Vietnam in 2015 - with the whole team! These are the awesome impressions and experiences we gathered there:
