Kamarg was founded in 1949 in Graz, Austria, with the aim to supply Austrian adventurers with high quality backpacks made of durable materials. The brand went on to become the bestselling backpack in Austria in the 50s and 60s.
After several decades of continued success, the band owners decided that it was time to retire.
In 2013 Franz Drack found a beige Kamarg on the attic of his parents’ house. He immediately fell in love with the timeless design and decided to revive the Kamarg Classic backpack in 2017 staying true to the iconic original design. The label is based in Vienna with a production facility in Portugal.
