The reason why we exist is quite simple: we have HEIMPLANET into existence because we see opportunities for improvement. We realized that our expertise could be used to find better fabrics, fairer working conditions, better trained manufacturers, cleaner production routes and more thoughtful designs. They say quality is about meeting expectations. Why just meet them when you can exceed them? We keep going until there is nothing left to improve. Is that an unrealistic goal? Probably. Does every great ambition start with a fair amount of naivety? Absolutely! What's the point of being a modern outdoor brand if you don't take risks? Actually, we are not so much concerned with realism as with what drives us.
