From the very beginning, since 2001, a fair, socially sustainable and long-term partnership with our small manufacturers, leather and fabric suppliers has been our credo. Since then, we still work with the same productons, weavers and tanneries.

We want to offer a valued, sustainable alternative: no mass production, short production routes, no social exploitation and therefore less environmental impact. We design out of conviction: fair, local and environmentally friendly clothing and accessories.

Our innovation is based on a universal understanding of design, classic craftsmanship and attention to detail. Our design culture is the attitude we take as a label towards our customers, partners, employees and producers. We work in such a way that all of the ideas and input of our employees is taken into consideration and implemented within our work and designs.

The Lifetime Repair Service for our bags is the repair service we have been offering for kleinbasel bags since the very beginning. Bring us or send your kleinbasel bag to our flagship store in Basel if you want a professional and long-lasting repair. We will send you a price quotation and your bag will be professionally repaired in the same factory in Ticino where the bag was made.

We conserve our resources:

Let yourself be inspired by fashion from here!
Laufmeter raises awareness of sustainability in the fashion world and gives fashion enthusiasts the opportunity to set an example for more conscious consumption with their purchasing decisions.

Wear high-quality clothing for longer, buy locally and fairly: slow fashion is the counter-movement to fast fashion. It stands for the conscious use of resources, including in the closet. However, production conditions – both social and ecological – and production routes are often incomprehensible.

Here you can find out who designed the clothes and accessories and where they were produced. You can also discover a new favorite label from your region in the new “Directory of Swiss Fashion Labels”.
