Since more than 10 years Blauvent is standing for innovative bags and accessories made out of paragliding fabric including upcycled editions. In the course of the last years Blauvent has gained new territories and found a second office in the alps close by Innsbruck in Austria.
While the expertise of production is still based in Spain the company transformed in the early 2020 into an Austrian GmbH, a limited company with Carmen and Joakim as
shareholders. As a result of this fusion of workforce and skills new limited editions have been added to the portfolio of Blauvent. Including reaching out to the purely digital world.
