Bleed - 100% ECO, 100% FAIR
Bleed has its origins in the heart of Upper Franconia, in the quiet textile-weaving town of Helmbrechts and remains rooted there today. The label was founded in 2008 by local skateboarder Michael Spitzbarth who had worked for a few years as a freelancer for various clothing companies after finishing his studies in Textile Design. During this time, he got a good insight into the ways of the textile industry which made it clear to him that something had to change. Nature had already bled enough and it had to stop. With this thought, both the name and the brand were born.
With the support of friends and family, Michael got to work on the first collections. His goal, both then and now, was to lead people of all ages to the green way of living using good style, without disapproving or pointing the finger. 10 years on, bleed has established itself firmly on the green market and its team has grown. The team design, test and market clothing which has to both fulfil the requirements for sport and look good in everyday life. They have always been in search of special materials. They use these materials in unconventional ways for innovative, functional and extraordinary products. Through cooperations with organisations who share the passions for nature, people, animals and sports, they can pursue their mission and support each other.
