Founder & Management

Clarissa

She is definitely a little crazy. At night she dreams of cork products and during the day the others have to pay the price. For her, cork is not a natural material, but a way of life (almost a religion, I'm afraid). There are no limits to her screwed-up imagination and her ecstasy seems to be downright contagious. Clarissa is a bit of a workaholic, because when asked what she does in her free time, you only get raised eyebrows in response. If there is still a bit of breathing space left, she naturally spends her time with the children. And once the sun has disappeared behind the mountains, she can be found at the occasional party, because she doesn't just sit at the Mac-Book.

Production management

Edwin

Edwin is our master of product madness. He coordinates when what is produced so that it can be shipped together at the end. He is the cork whisperer and knows which addition needs to be made for which carpet length so that the dimensions are correct in the end. He has an eye on how, where, when and what needs to be glued and how long it is best to leave the part alone. He keeps the wild chickens in the factory in check and doesn't hold back with the odd bold remark. And very important: he has nerves of steel (there are reasons why Edwin took over the production and not Clarissa:-) He hardly has any free time, but when he does, he throws himself at the children or the Krumbach music club is waiting for the thoroughbred musician.

Digital management

Markus

Also known as the hero of the code. Essentially, his job is to make the impossible possible. Not easy at all, because there are many wishes to be fulfilled: from optimization processes to the big wishes of small product developers and marketing princesses. Well, and then good Markus also has many ingenious ideas of his own to make your life in the Clarissakork-world easier. The list is almost inexhaustible. No end in sight. When he wants to recover from our wishes, he can be found playing the drums in various bands.

Head of the parcels

Doris

We secretly keep a list of errors here. Doris' note usually remains blank. It's also called The Brain here. It ensures that you receive your products beautifully packaged in the right color and quantity. Sounds simple, but it's not. But that's not Doris' only talent - she retains her dry and charming sense of humor even at chaotic peak times. When you look at her face, you can't help but smile broadly. In her private life, Doris prefers a hike up the Hochäderich with a stop at her parents' Alpe Hochwies.

Fritz's boss and queen of the high-speed sewer

Anna

Anna is not easily rattled. Whether our cutter Fritz is on strike, the orders are piling up or Clarissa wants another new prototype - Anna remains calm and doesn't make anyone nervous. And anyone who thinks you can't do a trade with long, painted fingernails is welcome to ask her for tips. If you want to see the beautiful Anna outside our manufactory, you have to go searching. At the weekend, she likes to cross the border or can be found cuddling with her dog in the beautiful countryside.

All-rounder in the manufactory

Andrea

Cheerful, flexible and fabulous - that's our Andrea. Need to sew? Andrea starts the machine! Need someone in shipping? And they are already packing what they can. This radiant, cheerful girl is like our girl scout: always ready! The all-rounder with the calm charisma also has good ideas, as the Nara glasses case is her brainchild. Outside of our corked universe, the trained florist likes to spend a lot of time with her Australian Shepherd Amira, enthusiastically kicking yellow balls over the net and exhausting herself bouldering.

Store management, assistant to the management

Birgit

Uff, where do I start, where do I end? Birgit is our 1000-Sassa and therefore has many agendas on her screen. She manages our store in Hittisau, advises customers on the carpet selection on site, is the friendly voice on the phone and is also happy to help you by e-mail. She keeps suppliers in check and orders everything the manufactory wants. She also helps Clarissa with the online store, prepares print and embroidery files and so on and so forth... Yes, and because that's not enough of a challenge for the youngster, she also helps out in the factory with her specialist knowledge. She is the master of disaster, so to speak. No wonder she likes to run up mountains or get on her bike at the weekend.

Marketing

Elisabeth

Also known as Idea Beth ... Yes, Elisabeth has lots and lots of great ideas - for products or for the online store. She also comes up with nice surprises for customers. She always keeps the team on their toes and ensures that we don't get bored the day after tomorrow. A real marketing junkie. A lesson learned is a lesson learned. That's why she also supports Clarissa when it comes to Soschäl Media... In other words - she looks after our influencer sheep, negotiates hard, checks out the best deals and keeps a watchful eye on which influencer is the best horse in the stable. If you have so many ideas, you need to do some soul-searching, which is why you'll often find our Idea Beth on our yoga mat.

Developer

Florian

Marketing

Sandra

Her world is also completely corked, but it also consists of lots of letters and commas. When Sandra hits the keys, it generally ends in a text frenzy, unless her coffee level is not yet up to par, then it becomes critical. She arrives from distant Bregenz in her coral-colored rocket and we secretly wonder whether she has matched her bright hair color to the car or vice versa. She keeps trying to lure us into the city to let us in on the secrets of the art world, as she regularly organizes exhibitions in a gallery that is her second living room.

Store Hittisau and customer service

Doris

Bonjour! Zdravo & Hello. When our language talent Doris gets going, you only understand Spanish. Yes, she can do that too. That's why she also translates our website into French and can parley fluently with our customers in five languages. A keen traveler, Doris has already seen a lot of the world and has always worked for large corporations - now the trained forwarding agent enjoys the fine family atmosphere with us. When she advises customers in our store in Hittisau, she feels right at home. Literally. Because she has so many of our products at home that she could easily open her own showroom. To get out of the corked bubble from time to time, she likes to go hiking, bend herself in yoga or paddle around Lake Constance on her stand-up board - très elegö, as we French like to say. 😉

Production employee and seamstress

Herlinde

Herlinde is someone very special: she is our first employee! Our hard-working pearl likes to provide Clarissa with chocolates when she feels she needs them, and she also takes care of everyone and everything else. Herlinde is the master of oversized and round rugs. The Mellau native is reluctant to leave her large sewing machine, as it is her absolute favorite place in the manufactory. In her private life, however, Herlinde is not tied to one place: In her free time, she gondolas around somewhere between Mittagspitze, Munich, Vienna and Crete.

Production employee

Mario

Before Mario enjoys a well-deserved after-work beer in the form of a "Rote Patrone" (for the uninitiated: this is what the beer from a regional brewery is called in Vorarlberg), he tames our cutter Fritz, drives goods from A to B or makes us grin with his dry humor. The dad of four with nerves of steel is also responsible for laminating, where the various components that we need for almost all of our products are glued together. His secret passion is Activity - a game in which he is a notorious team player, because his motivation knows no bounds.

Production employee and head of printing

Sebastian

We are certain - coffee flows through his veins! So it's no wonder that Sebastian is always on his toes. We secretly call him "Blitzgneisser". He lived in Vienna for a long time and lived out his artistic streak in a gallery. Now he's practically our wish fulfiller. Sebastian is the man of the hour as a print master. He's an absolutely committed guy, because Sebastian is also responsible for laminating - that's where the various components that we need for almost all products are combined (haha, great pun). Fortunately, his humor is much more entertaining, even if it is as dry as the Gobi Desert.

Production employee and seamstress

Maria

Good is not good enough. Maria not only sews beautifully, she sews perfectly. Without ifs and buts. She loves working with our natural material cork and is delighted every time we add a new product to our range. Only last Christmas, when the flood of orders for the ANNA shopper was never-ending, was she happy to be able to sew tried and tested placemats again. Maria is friendliness personified and even on really stressful days she keeps her smile until late in the evening. Nature is her absolute favorite energy tank.

Production employee and seamstress

Christa

When Christa checks our manufactory, we hold our breath, because our dear colleague has to abbreviate everything correctly and sort the cork by color alphabetically. Anything else is unacceptable. She prefers to work with Edwin at the gluing machine, but is just as good at sewing and, thanks to her perfectionism, is also Markus' first choice when it comes to adding something to the online store. And woe betide her if she finds a product there that was not photographed exactly as it is currently manufactured. Then there's trouble for Clarissa. Having a Monk in the team is sometimes challenging, but at the end of the day it's a great gift, because someone has to keep an eye on things. And despite her stern eye, Christa is always up for a bit of fun and is a really loyal soul. Her love of detail is also evident in her private life, as she loves making elaborate cards.

Production employee and seamstress

Elena

At first glance, you would think that Elena is very shy and quiet. Okay, she may not be a ramp sow, but you can't fool yourself either. Once you've lured her out of her shell, she chats away happily and laughs so heartily that the sun rises. She moved from Moscow to Mellau years ago - how lucky for us, because she completed a fashion apprenticeship in her home country and gained experience in the design sector. She is one of our passionate sewers and actually enjoys sitting at the machine in her free time - unless she is plowing through nature with her camera and looking for exciting motifs.

Production employee and seamstress

Shaila

Her name is actually spelled differently, but after it was messed up at school to SCHIIILA, she changed the spelling without further ado. When it's not about her name, the down-to-earth clothing technician loves variety - which is why she prefers to sew exactly what is needed at the time in the manufactory. She is always ready to help and never lets anything spoil her good mood. Whenever possible, she roams through nature and collects edible things, which she then turns into pesto and juice or flavors salt at home.

Mistress of the color samples

Caroline

She is not a textile specialist and yet she simply wanted to work for us - probably because we are so incredibly cool. And so she is now the boss of color samples! Caroline also masters occasional special assignments with great aplomb. And when she's not cutting and tying patterns, she lovingly looks after her children.

Performance Marketing

Jennifer

Jennifer is responsible for many things that have casual abbreviations and about which the normal citizen of the world has no idea. SEO, SEA, ADS. No, these are not diseases, but they are supposedly called performance marketing. Well, we never stop learning here. Jennifer confidently manages our online marketing activities. This makes our cool store even better known and, above all, ensures that it doesn't get lost in the Google jungle. In addition, dear Jennifer is a proud mom.

Cleaning fairy

Franzi

Franzi is our attentive elf, who always flits through the manufactory when none of us are there yet or when we are all popping the corks after work. But when she's done with her work, it's so perfectly neat and spotless that even Marie Kondo looks pale. Our cleaning pearl came to us in the Bregenzerwald from near Stuttgart via the Allgäu - that's why you sometimes see a lot of question marks pop up in her head when one of us starts ranting in dialect. To relax, nature-loving Franzi tends to her garden or takes her beloved foster pony Sonja by the reins and takes her and her family for a walk or to the mountains.
