The Switzerland diaries – part 9 – I LOVE products from up-cycled Swiss army blankets by Karlen Swiss.

I LOVE products from Karlen Swiss

Before there was Karlen Swiss the only thing you could buy in a souvenir store in Swiss was a wooden mask of a trole, a dried Edelweiss flower or a Victorinox knife. All a bit flimsy! But now the first thing I do when we arrive in Fiesch is checking out the dusty souvenir shop in this small village to see what Karlen Swiss products they have on stock! Karlen Swiss makes products from old Swiss army blankets. I love the idea of up-cycling something old into trendy products. If Switzerland has a spcial place in your heart too, you probably like the Karlen Swiss collection!
