The roots of the Schneider family lie in the idyllic small town of Bregenz, near Lake Constance. Georg Schneider founded the first specialty rubber goods store in Austria in 1890 under the name Gummi-Schneider.
The company was relocated to the capital Vienna, from where customers throughout the Austro-Hungarian Empire were supplied. Branch openings gradually followed in Temesvar and Budapest.
The Viennese wholesaler was joined by its own production company, the Schneiders Taschenfabrik.
The Schneiders company developed into the largest luggage manufacturer and became the leading brand throughout Austria and Europe.
Market launch of the VER SACRUM collection. Founder and 3rd generation of the Schneider family, Helga Stermann-Schneider, is realizing her dream of designing VER SACRUM Vienna, which combines the timelessly elegant design of Josef Hoffmann with the highest level of craftsmanship and functionality.
WALKER - the backpack brand is founded and quickly develops into a cult brand in Austria. Everywhere in the schoolyards, on the subways and on the streets you see teenagers carrying a Walker backpack. He becomes a symbol of an entire generation.
