Vaude Production Made in Germany

We love our country and the beautiful nature that surrounds us. VAUDE’s central concern is to operate in harmony with nature. We take our responsibility for the future seriously. We don’t just talk about it – we act. And this is visible in every one of our products.

MIG – Made in Germany

Especially in these times of globalization, we honor our roots and they are located near Lake Constance, more precisely in Tettnang in southern Germany. Design, development and production go hand in hand here. Since 1980 we have been producing high-quality backpacks, bicycle and lifestyle bags in our factory. Each part is manufactured individually by hand on special machines. This guarantees first-class quality, innovative technology and modern design.

Climate Neutral

Production at our Tettnang site is completely climate-neutral. This means that the resulting emissions from material processing, manufacturing process and shipping have been systematically reduced to a bare minimum. Unavoidable emissions are now fully offset.

You can find more about our active climate protection here.


All products manufactured in our factory are completely PVC-free. The production of PVC (polyvinyl chloride) and the plasticizers it contains are considered problematic for humans and nature. This is why we do not use them at all. As an alternative we use tarpaulin made of TPU (thermo-polyurethane) coated textile fabric. It is just as durable and waterproof, but not harmful to health.

We have prepared further information on PVC-free materials for you here.

100 % Waterproof

Reliable protection from moisture plays an important role in bags. A special high-frequency welding process produces 100% waterproof “seams” without a needle perforating through the material. At the same time, our products are particularly robust and durable.


Our products manufactured in Germany meet the highest quality standards and are the result of many years of experience and special expertise in production. That is why we grant a five-year guarantee on all products “Made in Germany”.
