Every brand has a story

From Show Visit to Equestrian Organizer

It is spring 2016 in the Bergisches Land as Christoph Winkelmann, company owner of Geckwin GmbH, enjoys an extensive walk with his Great Dane Somèh. The show season has just begun and the first riders meet him well dressed and prepared for the next competition. Always with his eyes open, the order lover notices the many riders and helpers who transport their good grooming equipment in heavy suitcases, plastic buckets or bags. His intuition and creativity quickly turned into the first design of sturdy, functional bags for storing grooming sprays and brushes.

From the drawing, to the selection of materials and details, to the first prototype, the first SOMÈH Grooming Bag is soon on the table. Together with interested friends and associates, the first important step for the corporate design is done, while the brand Somèh is already found.

The Strong Company

It all began more than 20 years ago with an idea and clear demands on quality and know-how. With his keen sense for markets and opportunities, Christoph Winkelmann laid the foundation for today's internationally active company. Always one step ahead, with vision and customer-oriented cooperation, Geckwin GmbH has since developed and produced functional storage solutions for successful brands, with the highest quality standards. With its in-house managed brand MAGMA, the company is also one of the most successful players in the music scene.

The development of the exclusive equestrian line SOMÈH has been another important building block in the company's history since 2016 and offers horse lovers from all over the world careful storage and comfortable transport of their equipment in a stylish and functional design. In order to offer customers worldwide the best possible advice and service, SOMÈH works together with selected specialist trade partners and retailers. Together with business partners, friends and brand ambassadors, the premium bag label stands for timeless quality and stylish comfort in horse care.
