Bernd Hausmann from Glore in Nuremberg talked with us about F-ABRIC and his favourit places in the city.

Tell us about yourself.
I'm the founder of Glore.

Digital or analog?
Analog.

Do you iron yourself?
No.

What kind of music do you listen to in your store?
Indie folk pop.

France, Italy or Poland?
Italy.

Why F-ABRIC?
The concept is impressive: regional production, closed-loop principles and effective communication – and it's all from a very well-known brand.

What do you like about it?
The collection is authentic. I like the fact that it doesn't follow fashion cycles. Developing the material over many years is a step in the right direction, especially considering how all other brands launch a new collection every six weeks. It's great that this concept takes its time.

Why are you customers buying F-ABRIC?
Because the collection and feel of the materials are outstanding and the color range is superb. It's also well presented – and the story behind it is interesting for all.

What else would you like to see from F-ABRIC?
More colors and a wider selection of items. A jacket, for example. But please don't become too fashionable. Stick with the concept of workwear for workers.

Do you have a compost heap?
Kind of. I have a spot in my garden that's marked off with a few bits of wood and I throw the stuff in there.

Apart from your shop, what else is worth seeing in your city?
The Nazi Party Rally Grounds, definitely. Bar Blok and Fürther Strasse, especially because Courtroom 600 from the Nuremberg trials is there. Another must-see is an FC Nürnberg home game.

What's the biggest cliché about Nuremberg? Does it apply to you?
That Franconians aren't very open and a bit grouchy. But it's not true!

What's your favorite thing at your store (apart from F-ABRIC)?
Nudie Jeans.

Where should customers stop off on their way to your shop?
Take a moment to enjoy the peace at St. Lorenz.

Which place serves the best lunch in your city?
Try one of the stands at the main market.
