FREITAG Giveaway

If you've been to Switzerland and especially to Zurich, you might have noticed all those flashy colored bags made of rubbery looking materials.

Almost everyone here in Switzerland heard about this brand: FREITAG

Graphic designer brothers Markus and Daniel Freitag were working on a handy and water-tight messenger bag design. Looking out the window of their flat they noticed all those multicolored trucks passing the cross-Zurich highway. Inspired by those lorries they made a messenger bag out of an old truck tarpaulin.

The success story started with the finding of the tarpaulin's value.

All materials are used and therefore marked by their service on the road.

Since every single bag is made of unique tarpaulins, none of the products have the same color, texture or graphic.

This is the inimitable entrance of the flagship store in Zurich.

Geroldstrasse 17
8005 Zürich

The unique building really makes you want to go inside and have a look at the products and the architecture.

Latest line: REFERENCE

This collection refers to urban brainworkers, male and female.
The new line includes not only laptop or messenger bags, but also chic clutches. All items are available in three main colors: Blue, White and Light-Blue. There are countless nuances lying inbetween tough, which challanges the choice since every nuance has its own gloss and finer points.

Did you spot Nesli's HUTCHINS bag?

Which one might have been MiJi's pick? ^^


To our advantage FREITAG was kind enough to provide us with this beautiful iPhone 4 GS Sleeve for the giveaway!

Please note that the case is not compatible with the 3 GS Model.

To enter the giveaway, please leave a comment with your first name and email address.

A winner will be picked randomly next Sunday!

Good luck everyone!
