When our head of production Sven Köhler comes out of the cellar with a new fabric sample in his hand and a huge grin on his face, we can pretty much assume that he’s found another gem. Indeed, those high-end technical materials that bring us one step forward in our development of functional clothing really are “gems”.
We have a long-standing friendship with Christian Grasmann, and if there is anyone who truly goes his own way, it’s him. Whether it’s in professional cycling or in training young talent one thing is certain, “Grasi” doesn’t ever seem to run out of ideas.
Mountain biking shorts have always been one of our main products, which is no coincidence because many of our colleagues at Maloja are avid mountain bikers. As such, when we work to improve these products, the development team is able to use their own experience to influence changes. On top of that, they communicate with the Maloja riders, who are always willing to provide valuable feedback.
Pio Pitsch grew up with the river Rome on one side and a small creek on the other in Val Müstair in Grisons, Switzerland. Maybe it’s because this former carpenter and fishery warden has always felt so connected to water that he’s fully devoted himself to revitalizing our lakes, rivers and seas.
Friday evening. The last e-mail sent and after work jumped directly into the car - at 7:00 pm was finally meeting place in Munich - we went (as so often) to Berlin. At the same time at the University of Hamburg. The final preparations for the math course on Monday completed, Marion jumped motivated in the ICE. Finally FEM weekend, finally full speed in the circle again!
At Maloja we have a soft spot for traditional printing and dyeing techniques. After using Batik (Beyond The Mountains) and Shibori (The Alpan Way) the design team went looking for a new option for the upcoming collection that would help continue the tradition of hand printing.
Hemp is one of the oldest utilitarian crops in the world. Its fibres were used to make ropes and sails for Columbus, paper for Gutenberg’s Bible and clothing for humans long before we even had calendars. After the 1950s, hemp sort of slipped into obscurity, but interest has grown steadily in recent years because there is virtually no other natural material that has such a positive ecological balance while still providing such outstanding functional qualities.

Of course, it is most beautiful outside. But sometimes do not call the mountains, but the office. So that you can also enjoy a nice view from the desk, we have put together a few screen backgrounds for you.
We feel most at home in the mountains, but for many of us the city is where we live. At our Flagship stores you will find nearly all styles and colours from our current collection. Good coffee and friendly conversations await your visit and if your lucky, quite possibly a bike ride.
Each day our employees spend a lot of time working at our office and this is why we believe that a warm, welcoming atmosphere is imperative.
Maloja is a small clothing brand located in South Germany in Bavaria. Is it because we are closer to the limits of the sky, or due to the elemental forces that created the mountains millions of years ago? Possibly it is the feeling of freedom created by the breathtaking views atop of the world. Whatever the reason may be, the power of mountains is forever present. Their power is addictive, contagious and they leave you feeling fulfilled as their energy stretches far beyond the mountains themselves.… read more
