Upper Bavarian Oberammergau, famous for its woodcarvings and Passion Plays, is located in the beautiful Ammergau region of the Alps. Master glove maker Franz Ziener, originally from the Erzgebirge mountain area in Eastern Germany, set up his glove making workshop here in 1946. What were once high-quality, hand-made gloves for everyday use are today technically innovative gloves for winter and bike sports. For some years now, the functional specialist’s product portfolio has also been supplemented by a wide-ranging clothing line. The long-established company, headed by Franz Ziener, the third generation of the family to do so, together with managing director Frank Burig, is today one of Europe’s market leaders in the winter sports glove segment.
