This is Us

We just love bags. The four friends Sven, Florian, Oliver and Juliaan launched our company at the beginning of 2010 with our ergobag brand and ergonomic backpack for elementary schoolers. Today the FOND OF team consists of more than 200 clever minds and produces backpacks especially for kids from the age of kindergarten up to secondary school and for fashion-conscious adults. Wondering what will be next? Wait and see - we have lots of surprises in store!

An award-winning idea

School backpacks that combine ergonomic principles, customizability and sustainability - this idea, our concept and the design have been widely recognized, among other with the red dot design award 2011 and 2013, as a prizewinner in the competition "365 landmarks in the land of ideas" and in the business plan competition enable2start. In 2012, we also made it to the final of the German Start-up Prize. ergobag is bluesign® system partner, member of the FAIR WEAR FOUNDATION and in 2017 the IGR e.V. confirms ergobag as an "ergonomic product" with its seal of approval. At the beginning of 2019, ergobag was awarded "Leader Status" as a result of the effective implementation of the strict Code of Conduct, making it one of the few companies to have been awarded the best possible status.
