Kaspar Tanner's rope apprenticeship was completed, the three-year apprenticeship in Germany also ended. Endless mountain worlds, endless possibilities. In Dintikon, one hour northwest of Lucerne, Kaspar Tanner approached the matter contemplatively and founded a rope factory - without realizing that he had laid the foundation stone for one of the best-known premium outdoor brands of our time in 1862.

The MAMMUT had taken its first steps, but had not yet found its name. Tanner's company initially remained focused on rope, on safety, and from the 1940s onwards developed ever better mountain ropes. A red control thread in the rope became an early trademark, should confirm the quality of the products, the associated seal serve as a seal of quality. This seal had a mammoth on it. The next step to their own identity was taken.
