2004

In 2004 the first FAHRER trouser straps were sewn from recycled truck tarpaulins in a shared apartment in Berlin and sold at design Christmas markets.
The response on the markets was great, so Joachim Leffler decided to continue manufacturing the trouser straps. Product photos were taken, an Internet presence was set up and the first dealers to sell FAHRER tapes were won.
