This family-run business based in Tettnang/Germany has set its sights on becoming Europe’s most sustainable outdoor brand by the year 2015.

VAUDE has always placed a high value on external certification. We have been working with the strict environmental standard, bluesign, which monitors the entire textile manufacturing chain since 2001. We were also the first outdoor company to receive EMAS certification.
