Our development department is constantly in touch with the market and researching important new advances and innovations in the areas of materials, colors, shapes, forms and cuts. We pick up on the latest trends in the retail sector and tailor them to the promotional wear segment. Our styles are inspired by retail and fully meet the high standards for modern promotional wear at the same time: Optimal fits and cuts, bright colors and new material compositions offer a perfect base for textile finishing. Many of our products (e.g. the complete Jackets & Fleece line) do not have printed or sewn-on neck labels – only a small size label in the collar; the care label is sewn into the side seam. This gives our customers the widest possible range of design options for “private labelling”.
