Our history

... and where we come from! HEIMPLANET is inspired by the joy of traveling ...

When you travel, you feel alive. All your senses are alert and you always expect something new. You are constantly adapting to new situations, new people, new cultures and new environments. You have to rely on less and can discover more. When you embrace the experience, you not only get to know new things, you also get to know yourself.

 

The journey of HEIMPLANET began in 2003 with the idea for a new tent concept, which was born during a surf trip on the Portuguese coast. We traveled along the coast and had to pitch our tent several times. One day we arrived quite late, it was getting dark and it started to rain while we were trying to set up our tent. That was the moment we came up with the idea of improving a tent. At the time, it was just funny to talk about a tent from the future. In 2011, the first inflatable tent THE CAVE was launched on the market.

Since then HEIMPLANET has launched a whole range of products, all developed for a specific purpose. We combine the best technical features available with a clean and simple design. The result is extremely versatile products that are suitable for every journey and every day, no matter where you go. There is a special word that only exists in German: Heimat. [ˈhaimaːt]

It describes the place where you feel at home, the place where you belong, the place where you feel committed, the place that gives you the feeling that everything will somehow be okay, no matter what. We liked the idea of taking that feeling with us when we travel our planet.

 

 

OUR MISSION for the future

The reason why we exist is quite simple: we have HEIMPLANET because we see opportunities for improvement. We realized that our expertise could be used to find better fabrics, fairer working conditions, better trained manufacturers, cleaner production processes and more thoughtful designs. They say that quality means meeting expectations. Why only meet them if you can exceed them? We keep going until there is nothing left to improve. Is that an unrealistic goal? Probably. Does every great ambition start with a good dose of naivety? Definitely! What's the point of being a modern outdoor brand if you don't take any risks? Actually, we're not so much about realism, but about what drives us.

Exploiting the room for improvement

When you explore the world and seek new perspectives, you realize that while we are individuals, our world functions as a living, breathing organism. And that's exactly how we should stand together as humans - united. We are all interdependent. This makes it all the more important to treat each other and our planet with respect, tolerance and empathy. By the way we design our devices, we transfer this attitude to our daily lives. We are all in the same boat. All we can determine on this journey is which path we take, what we take with us and who we can touch along the way. Together we define the meaning of "modern outdoor".
