Don’t get us wrong – we may come across as arrogant and blunt, but friends mean the world to us. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of our friends and partners here.
Other cool online stores besides us
While these guys are much friendlier than us, the quality of the products in their online stores is just as great as ours, as well as the selection they sell also comes from small Estonian and European brands and independent designers. Take a look, doesn’t mean you have to make a purchase (we know you will).
(Boot Factory) – An awesome boot store, where you can find a wide selection of Samelin boots, including the legendary M77s. These boots are trusted even by NATO armies! Apart from rugged boots, they also sell Toku sandals & slippers, which are among our personal favorites.
Ott operates a global version of the shoe shop, featuring a vast assortment of the Samelin boots mentioned earlier. Therefore, this is the ideal spot if you have an international acquaintance who wishes to purchase Samelin boots.
(Jewelry Factory) – This store is perfect for those who are not fond of dull jewelry. Along with locally crafted designs, they also offer exclusive jewelry pieces from foreign designers that are not available in any other online store in Estonia.
(Gifts for Men) – Katarina’s and Margot’s online store addresses one of life’s most frustrating issues: what to gift a man when you no longer want to settle for the predictable options of underwear or socks? (Although, if socks are still the preferred gift, why not present them in a beer can or a can of herring?). For instance, if your father enjoys exercising, visiting the sauna, and occasionally sipping on gin and tonic like our dads, then a gin-themed water bottle is an ideal workout companion, along with sauna essentials.
(Bag Factory) – This online store is the largest bag store in Estonia, so if you have a weakness for bags, you should check it out. Our team members, including Roland and Joosep, are big fans of Kotivabrik’s Galvi-Linda backpack 063, and Roland also owns a Nordhale briefcase. Annamari’s son has a Noel’s backpack, and Joosep is eyeing a leather waist bag that used to be sold by car dealers at Raadi airport.
This international bag store sells backpacks, handbags, wallets as well as military bags. What makes them so special is the fact that most of their items are handmade.
Specialized military and hiking equipment store, where they pride themselves on offering exclusively high-quality products, no matter if you are seeking high-performance clothing, rugged footwear, durable backpacks, or dependable tactical gear.
Partners in business
Our product selection is based on the Hertwill catalog. Who’s Hertwill? Let us explain.
Soon after having launched Saapavabrik & Kotivabrik, the founders of these two online stores realized that hundreds and thousands of other small manufacturers around Europe must create awesome products, which are not yet widely available. Maybe on their websites? But as manufacturers who put their effort into making a good product, they won’t have resources for launching their products to wider markets.
So, our guys wanted to help these small manufacturers grow, and this is how the idea for Hertwill arose. Looking to partner up with manufacturers making truly great and long-lasting products, Hertwill connects independent brands with online stores around the world. Plus they make starting a new online store truly as hassle-free as starting anything new can be.
