AND CO-FOUNDER OF YELLO
OUR CONNECTION TO DIETER
Artist, entrepreneur and co-founder of the pioneering electronic band Yello, Dieter Meier embodies an elegant, cosmopolitan spirit in his Renaissance mindset and sartorial refinement. Ever the polymath, Dieter has been involved in sustainable agriculture projects for almost two decades. A few years after having discovered his outstanding wines, we met Dieter through a common friend, and bonded over how questioning the norm is essential to shaping a brand.
The handfeel of Bananatex® kisses my mind
Dieter’s wit, experience and precise observations have kept us on track as we pursue our own path. What does he think of our Bananatex® Roll Pack in Natural White? It’s practical and discreetly sexy, he says, though he admits he’d generally prefer to have a backpack integrated into a jacket. In lieu of that, good quality material goes a long way. The handfeel of Bananatex®, with its natural beeswax coating, “kisses my mind,” he tells us.
