FAIR WAGES

BY USING THE BEST AND MOST EXCLUSIVE YARNS, WE ENSURE THAT THESE ARE OEKO TEX CERTIFIED.

BY USING THE BEST AND MOST EXCLUSIVE YARNS, WE ENSURE THAT THESE ARE OEKO TEX CERTIFIED.

The STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® is a worldwide consistent, independent testing and certification system for raw, semi-finished, and finished textile products at all processing levels, as well as accessory materials used. This also includes compliance with the prohibited substances such as AZO colorants, formaldehyde, pentachlorophenol, cadmium, nickel, etc. Our articles are free from this type of colorant.

The precondition for the certification of products in accordance with OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 is that all parts of an article meet the required criteria – in addition to the outer fabric, for example, also the sewing threads, inserts, prints etc., as well as non-textile accessories, such as buttons, zip fasteners, rivets etc.

COTTON

We source our cotton from all over Africa and South America. The best thing about this natural fiber: it is lightweight, absorbent and elastic. Especially for our shirts, this is a positive side effect because cotton fabrics are also extremely skin-friendly and have a high wearing comfort. These characteristics make cotton to one of our favorite fibers.

MERINOWOOL

The Merino is an economically influential breed of sheep prized for its wool and is the so-called functional fiber of nature. In addition to the scratch-free pleasant feel, it has unique characteristics that are perfectly suited to our clothing: odorless, insulating, easy to clean and still sustainable. Merino wool has a self-cleaning function due to the natural wool fat.

LAMB’S WOOL

A sheep produces 5-7 kilograms of wool per year, which is enough for 6 wool sweaters. Similar to human hair, a wool fiber is made of keratin. Because of the scale-like structure of the surface wool fibers reject water. It is soft, elastic, and slippery, and is used in high-grade textiles.

CASHMERE

The natural fiber cashmere is a luxury fiber obtained from cashmere goats: it is received by combing the neck region of the cashmere goat. Cashmere is collected during the spring season once a year, and the goat is combed out not sheared, which is a quality feature. The processing chain consists out of washing and cleaning the combed wool and then only the finest white cashmere fiber is processed into yarn.

LINEN

The linen fabric or linen blended fabric is one of our favorites for the summer time. Linen fabrics are breathable, dirt-resistant and robust. The single linen fiber absorbs moisture while successively releasing it again, which provides a cooling effect in the finished fabric. Perfect for hot summer days.

WOOL

Already 7000 years ago, wool felts were used in daily life in China and Egypt. Then as now, the most crucial characteristics are the thermal insulation and the natural self-cleaning function. Especially in winter, woolen fabrics are perfectly suitable against the cold and still do not need to be washed very often. Most of the times airing is enough to give the garment new freshness.

DENIM

From the French expression „Serge de Nîmes“ (tissue from Nîmes) the shortened form „Denim“ originated in America. Since then, jeans have proven to be robust and resistant and have become known especially by Levi Strauss. Even today, we make use of the durable fabric. We often integrate denim fabrics with new designs or prints in our collections.

REAL LEATHER

While we use synthetic leather for the badges on our clothing to guarantee a consistent look even with frequent washing, we use genuine leather for our accessories. Our belts are made of full buffalo leather, and the belt close of Zamak. For our textile belt, we use cowhide at the leather sections.

FIBER DOWN

We do not use real down on our products because we find synthetic fibers quite convincing. Especially in wet and cold weather, these „Fiber Downs“ are practical all-rounders: The jacket is insensitive to moisture and feels pleasant on skin even in wet conditions. Also, it dries faster and is easier to wash.

COLOURATION

GENERALLY, WE DISTINGUISH BETWEEN TWO TYPES OF COLOURATION:

COLOURATION

GENERALLY, WE DISTINGUISH BETWEEN TWO TYPES OF COLOURATION:

YARN DYEING

The raw yarn is wound on a spring tube to achieve a package suitable for dye penetration. After that the carrier is loaded on the dyeing machine and the yarn is dyed. By this type of dyeing, you can create a nice effect during weaving by weaving several yarns together.

GARMENT DYEING

This means the T-shirt is made and afterwards dyed. Although garment dyeing is the most extensive of the dyeing methods, it enables us to achieve a softer, broken-in feel and it takes out 99% of shrinkage to ensure consistent sizing.

PRINTS

WE HAVE SIX DIFFERENT PRINTING TECHNIQUES SO THAT EVERY INDIVIDUAL PART RECEIVES ITS OWN INDIVIDUAL LOOK.

PIGMENT PRINTING

We use pigment printing to produce colourful prints on our T-Shirts by applying pigment paste on the fabric surface. Pigment printing is the most economical printing process and allows the maximum output of goods.

DISCHARGE PRINTING

You have probably seen many shirts with a very soft print which looks like the colour of natural cotton. This is called discharge printing. It is used to print colours on dark garments. Due to this type printing the fabric feel usually remains unchanged, so the fabric still feels soft and the wearing comfort is maintained.

ROTARY SCREEN PRINTING

How do we print our funny prints on our extravagant shorts and shirts? With Rotary screen printing. The hollow rollers are covered with a fine mesh plastic fabric. The paint is pumped into the hollow roller, distributed by a roller squeegee and then pressed through the exposed areas of the printing screen on the fabric. Each colour receives its own sieve (printing form).

FLOCK PRINTING

Flock printing might be known to the footballers among you and is a nice way of printing. Flocking is the process of depositing many small fiber particles onto a surface. To make the print beautifully velvety, the fibers are laid in one direction by electrostatic charging.

DIGITAL PRINTING

Digital textile printing describes any ink jet-based method of printing our colourful designs onto our nice-looking products. This inkjet printer prints special pigment ink directly onto the textile and fixes it permanently with heat. With this type of printing, our soft feel is retained and good wash resistance and bright colours are assured.

3D PRINTING

With this printing process, the colours / print motifs are printed sublimely and become embossed. Foam printing features are: soft, wear-resistant, washable, good fastness inks and flexible.
