Fuchs-Tachtenmoden

The Dirndl Sarah is wearing is made by Fuchs-Trachtenmoden. The company was founded by Ludger Fuchs and is located in Roding, close to Cham in Bavaria, Germany. The company says its their philosophy " to transform former-time-traditional-cloths into a modern version of traditional clothing". For Fuchs-Trachtenmoden it is important to see in the word “Tracht” the word “tragen” which means “wearing” – So they want us to wear traditional Trachten today and they will sell us the modern Tracht for it.

Sarah brought her dress for about 140€ at Muna, a shop in Freudenstadt, Germany.

Sarah loves traditions of the south of Germany and she is willing to invest a lot of money into a dress like a Dirndl. She told me she is willing to buy a Dirndl each year. She has at least twice a year occasions to wear them, which is why she wants so many of them.

The company Fuchs-Trachtenmoden does not say anything about its way of production. I wrote an e-mail and asked them if they could let me know about it. But so far there is no answer. So if they change their mind - I would be happy!

The German company is registered in Roding, Bavaria close to the Czech border, which might be a hint that the production takes place there. But this is only a suggestion and in fashion industry you get so surprised about which ways a fashion production goes. - In good and bad ways.
