Swiss Brands

Freitag store

Geroldstrasse 17 Kreis 5

Freitag is a Zurich brand, founded in 1994, that produces all kind of bags. From wallets through laptop skins to backpacks. The bags are made of recycled truck tarpaulins and hence are quite tough. This makes every bag unique. The Freitag shop in Zurich, located next to the Hardbrücke station, is built from old shipping containers stacked up to a tower of 30 meters height. Climbing it (it's free) gives you a nice view on industrial Zurich. link
