Don’t miss the unique Swiss brand created by Markus and Daniel Freitag. Freitag sells satchels, handbags, phone covers, and bags at the leading edge of Swiss urban chic. These unique hand cut and sewn bags come from materials recycled from truck tarps, bicycle inner tubes and seat belts.

The Davos Freitag store offers a wide selection from the sporty Fundamentals collection to their Reference line.
