Sustainable Innovations

We are convinced that in today’s world it doesn’t hurt to be different. Different from the standard, different from the status quo and the way it’s always been done. We are here to break new ground, try out alternative solutions, drive sustainable innovations and, above all, make sustainability desirable. We rethink, we question, we care and we never stop developing. Sustainability is not a goal for us, but the lever for innovation and continuous development.

It all started in 2016. We, Dario and Dario, were far from home in Graubünden in the Yukon Territory – a Canadian area that is around twelve times the size of Switzerland, but only has about 36,000 inhabitants.

It was this trip that we planned spontaneously in order to switch off from an instructive but also very intensive time in management consulting. And the shutdown worked fine. With 20 hours of sunlight we were on the river most of the time. Had almost nothing to do other than enjoy the unbelievable and untouched nature, relax and listen to Credence Clearwater Revival from the cell phone boxes up and down.

It all started in 2016. We, Dario and Dario, were far from home in Graubünden in the Yukon Territory – 7 days by canoe on the river in the wilderness.

It was this trip that we planned spontaneously in order to switch off from an instructive but also very intensive time in management consulting. With 20 hours of sunlight we spent most of the time on the river and were able to enjoy the incredible and untouched nature to the fullest.

In this calm and time of serenity, the conversations about the personal and professional future began. Aside from the everyday routine, thoughts arose that very quickly solidified into a resolution: to build up your own company and have a lasting impact.

The core of the whole thing should be to combine business and sustainability in order to develop sustainable solutions.

The step into the textile industry was pure coincidence. Out of interest, we exchanged ideas with experts and visited industrial trade fairs. The trigger for this was the realization that although sustainability seems to be THE central issue for textiles, due to the complexity it is often either thought too briefly, simply surrendered or merely abused for marketing purposes (“green washing”). The idea of MUNTAGNARD is born.

“We produce high-quality products for all those who want to wear innovative, sustainable clothing without sacrificing comfort, style and quality.”

Dario, co-founder of Muntagnard

Our team

In the meantime, we are no longer just tinkering with two people and can count on a great and motivated team. From people with over 15 years of textile experience from well-known, global companies to highly ambitious lateral entrants, we bring everything with us that a modern Swiss startup needs.

Persistent

We rethink every single garment from the raw material to the disposal of the product and question all the features to develop the best possible version. It’s often the little things that bring the greatest joys, which is why we don’t want to leave anything to chance with our attention to detail.

Uncompromising

As industry outsiders, we bring a certain naivety and cheekiness to question the status quo. So we look for solutions with sometimes unconventional approaches so that we don’t have to compromise and can stand behind each of our products 100%. Even if this characteristic repeatedly causes headaches for us and our partners.

Solution-oriented

By often working without conventional materials, we are per se forced to work out innovative and creative solutions. If we cannot find a suitable material on the market, we spare no effort to continue looking for solutions or even to develop our own materials.

  • It‘s this time of the year again: In fall the sheep are shorn. Swiss Alp wool is the main raw material of our LANA jackets. 🐑🇨🇭

  • Small update from the Swiss factory that produces our LANA jackets: Cutting nearly every single piece by hand is a thing of the past with their new fabric cutting machine. Check out our Stories to see the machine in action! ✂ 
.
This makes our on-demand production more agile and most importantly, cutting waste is further reduced. We like!

  • When MANGOLA starts looking like a mountain, you know that you are in need of some time off. 😉 Now that the weekend is just around the corner, we can't help but daydream of a relaxing time in the mountains, wearing a MANGOLA shirt, enjoying the first days of autumn.

What are your plans for the weekend?

  • The Legna Printed T-shirt stands for the duality between nature and the city - because our daily lives today consist of a healthy combination of both.
.
Any guesses what city is depicted on the print?

  • Our mood this Friday: 😄
.
Looking back on last winter in Rothenthurm, SZ, knowing that the colder months are coming back around. Who is ready for the winter? Our CEO and Co-founder Dario Pirovino sure is - wearing his blue LANA jacket, made of 100% Swiss wool and lined with a wool-fibre fabric, he won't be freezing any time soon.

  • Fun fact: did you know that our logo stands for the duality between the nature and the city? 🏞 🏙 The diagonal line represents the ascent of the mountain, and the straight line stands for a building in the city - and together, they encorporate what Muntagnard encapsules: the interplay of both and the important role this duality plays in our lives.

  • Remember the LANA Hooded Jacket that we released last year? Your favourite winter piece, only hanging in your closet waiting for the colder months to come back around? Well, we have designed an additional style for this year’s fall/winter season. 
.
While it was our goal to create a new LANA style that offered our customers a new range of options, we made sure to maintain all of LANA’s core characteristics: the outer shell is made of our own Muntagnard Swiss LANA fabric, which consists of 100% Swiss wool; the lining is made of high-quality wood-fibres; and the details feature non-edible nuts and Swiss deer leather. 
.
We are happy to announce that this new creation is coming very soon, just in time for the colder months! Stay tuned for more information, we will keep you up-to-date on our social platforms and hope you are just as excited as we are!
