But what is the story behind this product?
DOA COLLECTION - High quality products with more than one good purpose.
"The name DOA is clearly connected to the people who taught me the values of responsibility, commitment, steadfastness and the principle of "give and take" in life. My mother Dorothea, my grandpa Oskar and my grandma Annelotte." - Tim Beier, CEO Bearpaw Products & Founder DOA Foundation. Starting in 2019 with small steps, the DOA Foundation will take a big step in 2020 - together with Buckle & Seam. Of the total revenue generated by the DOA Collection, 3% will go directly to the DOA Foundation's donation account. The DOA Foundation will use these donations for various activities, thus trying to make the world a better place for children/young people and students. But this is not the only part that creates something good. Through the partnership between BEARPAW and Buckle and Seam alone, 3% of the revenue generated by Buckle and Seam has also already gone to the girls' school in Karachi.
Why does the product have this exact name?
Annelotte is the grandmother of Tim. As a mother of three children and the wife of an entrepreneur at the time, she knows what it means to build something and lose something. Annelotte and her husband Oskar built up the company from zero to one hundred together shortly after the Second World War. Towards the end of the 70s, however, the company went bankrupt. In such a difficult situation Annelotte always tried to be a strong rock in the surf for her husband and children. Her always very clear thoughts, her extreme solution orientation in any situation and the will to get the best out of everything were the forces that enabled her to overcome the deep valley at that time. With her strong empathy and as an absolute harmony person, she has managed to keep the family together.
After some time, she rebuilt her existence with a simple office job in the community and continued on. Later, as a grandmother of 5 grandchildren, Annelotte passed on the values of respect, appreciation and honesty to the next generation. That is why we, this incredibly strong and positive woman, dedicate our canvas backpack to her.
