bERGAFFE Means Mountain Monkey.
And that’s how we started out – a ski instructor, a product designer from the village, a travelling programmer – all monkeying about, living in the city and travelling whenever possible.
We believe that what we wear should reflect our lifestyle. It should be able to take a ton of shit, be versatile, approachable, functional, and look fantastic as well. That’s why we created the bERGAFFE brand.
We design all bERGAFFE travel and performance wear to feel awesome on your body and last a lifetime, allow you to travel the world, explore beaches, ski the mountains, and yes, also just commute to work and back in the city with a smile on your face.
How do we do it? Well, we source only the best materials such as recyclable Sympatex and Primaloft for our jackets and organic spun cotton for our T-shirts and hoodies. We first decide what we want and then go for it. If we need to create our own materials, we do that as well.
Our mission is to bring bERGAFFE’s message to all you born globals out there, you mountain climbers, ski enthusiasts, urban travelers and nomads. Highest quality and attention to detail is everywhere, from ski and travel jackets to hoodies and shorts.
Go ahead, try it out. Live a little.
David, Lukas, Armin, and the bERGAFFE team.
