Merz b. Schwanen's roots date back to 1911, when Balthasar Merz started a textile factory in the Swabian Alps in southern Germany. A century later, in 2011, Berlin-based Gitta & Peter Plotnicki revived the brand after its production had ceased years before. Their inspiration? A 90-year-old Merz henley they spotted at a Berlin flea market.

We admire Merz's commitment to revitalizing traditional European textile production, as well as their focus on sustainability and premium materials, and we're proud to partner with them.
