This is a store made out of shipping containers. That pretty much sums up the attitude of the place, which is original, inventive and heavy on recycling. I am a big fan of their bags, made, essentially, from bits of old lorries. Inside, the store is cool and hip, a calm and relaxing place where it is fun to open... More

Located in trendy Zürich-West is Freitag's ultra cool flagship store built from 19 rusty, recycled freight-containers. Go inside and you'll find 4 sales floors of hip bags and more made from recycled truck tarps. Their one of a kind products include messenger bags, back packs and smart phone cases, many with bright colored designs. The products are well made and... More

This is a very innovative Swiss company that is worth visiting. Easily accessible by taking bus 72. Lots of Freitag bags on display, each one unique. Worth hiking to the top of the store where there is a viewing platform with spectacular views of Zurich and the Prime Tower. Very friendly staff, no one hassles you, no pressure to buy.

This extraordinary shop is made up of containers in the industrial area of Zürich West, close to Hardbruke station. It has an observatory tower on the 7th floor. The shop boosts an impressive selection of Freitag products. And as it was Santa Claus Day on our visit, the children were given a Gingerbread man. Sweet gesture that delighted them.

For a Freitag fan this is a must. Products can of course be bought on line but the container "skyscraper" is worth the visit even if you don't like the products - but who wouldn't ...?

I really like Freitag. I really like Freitag products. I find them to well designed, functional and I really enjoy the "one of a kind-ness" of each bag. Each bag is different and I enjoy browsing the entire product line at the Zurich store. Many of the bags are truly beautiful and it's fun trying to figure which bag to... More

As a brand Freitag are well known. Their flagship Zurich store is fun - made out of empty shipping containers. With a look, particularly if you walk past the shops in the railway arches on the way

Freitag has been around for about 20 years, recycling materials like tons of well-traveled truck tarps, worn-out bicycle inner tubes discarded seatbelts and recycled airbags. Each of their product is unique because it uses a different pattern of the recycled tarpaulin, but they follow some very functional model designs. At first, it was branded as alternative youth fashion, now it... More
