At home in the Bavarian Alps, on the slopes of the world: The family business ZIENER has been a specialist for technically innovative gloves and clothing for skiing, biking and active sports for more than 75 years.
What matters most to you as a brand?
Our company philosophy “Made by Pros” stands for the cooperation with athletes of the international top sports federations. ZIENER is also the official outfitter of the German Ski Association and the Austria Skiteam Nordic, as well as numerous other national and international ski associations. Due to its deep connection to nature, we are increasingly focusing on sustainability in production: renewable and sustainable materials.
It looks like you have engineered change. We’re curious! Could you please share with us what’s so unique in terms of design?
To this day, development and design come from Oberammergau – from employees who live their sport and are real pros in their field. They know what athletes demand from their functional clothing. This is how outstanding products are created.
For us, it’s about collaboration. Please share with us, what makes Sympatex your perfect match and ingredient?
The cooperation with Sympatex enables us to implement our passion for sustainable innovations with the highest quality.
Apparently, our planet matters to you, too! What’s your approach in that regard?
Due to our deep connection to nature, we are increasingly focusing on sustainability in production: renewable and sustainable materials such as Sympatex, lavalan® Alpenland wool as well as recycled materials can be found in a large number of the products. In addition, Ziener relies on PFC-free impregnation and have been a climate neutral company since 2020. A large part of our products is now produced in Europe to ensure a short transport route and to reduce our Co2 emissions. We support various climate protection projects and are one of the initiators of Valley-Green-Up, an annual clean-up campaign at our company location in the Ammergau Alps.
