Swiss «Woodland» TAZ 90
Adopted in 1957, the Swiss Leibermuster is closely based upon the 1945 Waffen-SS pattern of the same name. Nicknamed 'Vierfruchtpyjama' ('four fruits pyjamas') by Swiss soldiers and widely known as 'Alpenflage', by collectors, this distinctive camouflage pattern was replaced, in 1993, by the Swiss woodland camouflage.
This four-colour design comprises feathered, leaf-shaped black and brown patches, overprinted with medium green 'branches', on a khaki background. The branches in this pattern are approximately the same size and shape as the black branches seen in the Swiss Leibermuster. The light-green/white flecks that were seen in the earlier pattern are entirely absent.
