It all started in 1862 when Kaspar Tanner created his artisanal rope factory in Switzerland. Today, Mammut is an influential player in the outdoor world(climbing, mountaineering, hiking, skiing, ski touring, trail, ...) We all know this mammoth!

In climbing, most of the products are manufactured by Mammut. The references are numerous: harnesses, helmets, carabiners, backpacks...
In addition to respecting high quality standards, Mammut has also set itself the goal of protecting the environment and ensuring decent working conditions during the production of its products. Mammut requires its suppliers to respect a " Code of Conduct " including a series of measures relating to the working conditions of employees. This code of conduct is supervised and monitored by the fairware foundation.
At the same time, the Swiss company does not produce in so-called "high-risk" countries such as Myanmar, Bangladesh or North Korea. In China and Vietnam, where the majority of the products are produced, two permanent Mammut employees are on the ground to monitor the working conditions and the development and production processes.
At the same time, Mammut is strongly committed to environmental issues. This includes theadoption of environmental protection measures at the product level, the use of fair trade and organic cotton, the use of recycled materials and a rigorous control of the origins of the down used. Mammut also works closely with bluesign technologies AG.
