Meet our Brands
Meet our family of producers! We know how difficult is has become to know if the product you buy corresponds with your values. Thats why we try to offer you as much information on the people we work with a possible.
Picks of the month
This month it’s all about fair and delicious chocolate from small producers, little easter treats, things to throw a lovely brunch with a bunch of nice people and then hang out all day and cook dinner together - Panettone, Pancakes, spring flowers and a cup off tea and maybe even some bubbles.
New in woman's Fashion
It might be still freezing cool outside but we are already dreaming about theses warm summer days. The first spring breeze has reached our stores.
We travel the world with eyes, ears and senses open to find new exciting products and producers. The best part of this, beside discovering new beautiful, funny or inspiring things, is that we get to meet a lot of incredible people.
Our new catalogue 22/23 is here. Packed with products that make great sustainable gifts to yourself or loved ones.
Kitchener items do not deliberately follow short-lived trends but are pieces you can always wear. They are timeless basics, favourite items in the wardrobe in beautiful colour combinations and patterns.
Time to sow
Now is the time to start sowing your vegetables and summer flowers. We have plenty of interesting seeds and of course some really cool tools that make garden work even more fun.
Meet the hermit, hammerhead sharkey and parasole - the new aarebags collection has arrived.

A visit to STRUNK
It is a sunny autumn afternoon and we visit Magali & Maruska from Strunk. We have been stocking Strunk's preserved vegetables for several years and are big fans of their restaurant, which they run for a few months each winter
A studio visit at Laurin Schaub
It is not easy to find Laurin Schaub's studio. But then, tucked away right next to the railway tracks in Bern's Lorraine district, we find him in his studio, which is part of a studio community.
Meet Gorilla Gardening
It is raining cats and dogs as we set off to visit Raffael and Severin from Gorilla Gardening. We meet them in an old butcher's shop at the foot of Gurten, Bern's local mountain.
We send out 4 to 6 Newsletters a year talking about what we care about, what’s excites us and keep you informed on all the things happening at Kitchener. Missed one? No problem, here you can catch up
A visit to the laflor chocolate manufactory
We meet Laura from the chocolate manufacturer laflor at her production facility in the provisional premises on Uetlibergstrasse in Binz in Zurich. We are impressed by the lively and creative atmosphere of dasProvisorium..
Meet Franziska Luethy
We find Franziska Luethy in the former Brieger Areal in the middle of Zurich. Franziska's studio is part of a larger studio community. She shares her space with two graphic artists. There is a knitting machine on the wall, a work table with a computer by the window, and an ironing board with an iron on it next to it.
