namuk, that’s us

namuk comes from Switzerland. We develop our innovative products surrounded by high mountains and deep forests, with glittering lakes at our door. We are an experienced team of creative designers, product developers and material experts that has been designing and developing technical and functional clothing for more than 20 years with great passion.

A decade ago, we became parents ourselves of little maurauders, bruisers and wild things who love to play in the fresh air, and we suddenly found a great need for good functional clothes for kids. Only we didn’t find anything in stores to fit the bill.

That’s why we quickly decided to found namuk, the first Swiss outdoor kids label, to make exactly the clothes that we wanted for our children: durable, well thought-out and, most importantly, child-friendly outdoor clothes that are both sensible and fun… and go along with all kinds of mischief.

namuk knows what kids want

namuk knows what kids want

As a brand exclusively for kids, we focus 100% on children between 2 and 12 years old. All our products are made to meet children’s needs. They’re tested by kids and continually improved based on kids’ feedback.


namuk knows there’s no such thing as bad weather

We believe that when children get out into nature, they feel free and content and can develop without a lot of ‘no, you may not’ and ‘you must.’ We supply the clothes to spend many carefree hours outside, playing and getting into all kinds of capers. In every season, every type of weather.


namuk blazes new trails

We aspire to be trailblazers and use innovative materials and technology that have never been used before in kids’ clothing. We take ‘that won’t work’ and ‘no one has ever done that’ as a sporting challenge.


namuk lasts

Our products are made from robust materials and high-quality craftmanship. They offer versatile use and can thus be worn and passed on by multiple children. Over 70% of our collection is made from recycled materials.


namuk won’t stop thinking about tomorrow

We are conscious of our responsibility to society and produce our clothes with as little impact on nature as possible. We strive to leave our kids with an environment that’s as much intact as the one we had the privilege to experience.

namuk believes in karma

Treat others as you would like to be treated. For us, it goes without saying that the producers of our clothes must be partners on equal footing with us. We produce as sustainably, socially and fairly as possible and are acutely aware of our responsibility as a company (and thus as people).

We have worked with our outerwear producers in Asia for more than 17 years and visit each site several times per year. We intentionally schedule a part of our annual production in the off season so employees have work all year long.

Our working relationship with our streetwear producers in Portugal goes back over 8 years. The facility is certified as STeP Level 3 and in the second generation of family leadership. Here, too, we make frequent visits.


namuk is there for you

Long after the sale, we are there for our customers to help and advise them, whether it’s with questions about product care or little repairs. Personal contact is very important for us, which is why we are always available during business hours at +41 44 558 37 38 or via Email.
