Tradition & Innovation

100 years of experience and the courage to change

For more than 100 years, Bama has been a perfect combination of experience and the courage for innovation. This is what Bama founder Curt Baumann recognized: The old cardboard insoles were outdated. Instead, a soft pad was needed that could wrap the foot softly and keep it warm and protect it. 

With this idea, Baumann laid the foundation for today's international company in Dresden in 1914. With skilled craftsmanship, enormous diligence and a financial commtiment of only 750 Reichsmark, he created the fist insole. Of course, material, technologies and the needs of our customers have changed dramatically since then. What remains is a common goal: no matter which shoes you love and how long your are on your feet. We make your shoes shine.
