But what is the story behind this product?
DOA COLLECTION - High quality products with more than one good purpose.
"The name DOA is clearly connected to the people who taught me the values of responsibility, commitment, steadfastness and the principle of "give and take" in life. My mother Dorothea, my grandpa Oskar and my grandma Annelotte." - Tim Beier, CEO Bearpaw Products & Founder DOA Foundation. Starting in 2019 with small steps, the DOA Foundation will take a big step in 2020 - together with Buckle & Seam. Of the total revenue generated by the DOA Collection, 3% will go directly to the DOA Foundation's donation account. The DOA Foundation will use these donations for various activities, thus trying to make the world a better place for children/young people and students. But this is not the only part that creates something good. Through the partnership between BEARPAW and Buckle and Seam alone, 3% of the revenue generated by Buckle and Seam has also already gone to the girls' school in Karachi.
Why does the product have exactly this name?
We got to know Franz in 2019 when we were allowed to accompany him on a pump track biathlon with archery. Since then, Franz has remained in our minds in particular.
Franz works full-time in the Jam project (youth work model) in a community and also coordinates the PiA project (peers inform about alcohol). In addition he does a lot of work independently with the project "Intergrafit". This is an inclusion project, where people with physical and mental disabilities train in a gym.
What was Franz's intention with the Pumptrack Biathlon? Franz's intention was to bring together two really cool sports that inspire young people and to start an event that is a bit different from a classic biathlon. What is the motivation for Franz in his daily work? "It's mainly about doing something meaningful and which brings added value to society. I can say that today I have achieved something that makes sense. I have done something good for other people, and I think it is worthwhile for the work to put more than the necessary energy into it. The work of Franz in the youth area is therefore so important, because young people need a contact person, a role model and infrastructure measures very much. Young people have so much to cope with, so many changes, etc. and this is where a supportive person can help.
Since we believe that Franz is an incredibly important part of society and also contributes to making the world a better place, we proudly dedicate the bag "Allrounder Franz" to him.
Extremely cool - The all-rounder Franz
In the front pocket on the outside of the bag you can easily and practically store things you want to have at hand. The design of the bag deliberately left out the shoulder strap, because Franz is based on a duffel bag, whose minimalist design should be kept. Do you know that the backpack is too small and a sports bag too big? This bag is the perfect size to store your everyday paraphernalia. Due to the low weight of the bag and the malleability of the material, Franz can be easily filled up to the top and still be carried comfortably over the shoulder. Because the bag complies with the baggage regulations of conventional airlines, it is also great to take with you on your next vacation. Inside the bag there are additional small pockets on the side walls. Full Grain leather is the highest quality form of leather and makes the products made from it very resistant. By using the bag you will get an individual and beautiful vintage look after a while.
