Design Workshop for functional clothes.

Idea. Concept. Production. Quality control.

Innovative products. Nothing off-the-peg. Leather and textile clothes and accessories. – Our focus: Clothing for motorcyclists and snowmobile riders, outdoor and ski clothing, general and forestry work clothing, kids’ clothing and gloves.

The first impression is what counts. We set all levers in motion to develop and realise ideas in close cooperation with our customers. Step-by-step good design adds value to your brand always under the criteria of quality, innovation, dynamics, sportiness and aesthetics.

Leading brands of the motorcycle and sports industry are among our long-term customers.

So arbeiten wir.

You, the customer, and your idea are at the very beginning of every concept! We have the vision, the plan and the experience to realise it. It is the ambition of ART FOR FUNCTION to develop a coherent and tailor-made concept for your brand and to implement it efficiently.

The concept is followed by the briefing. We draw the first scribbles. As soon as we have the release, we work out detailed design drafts and present technical innovations. In teams we develop logos and trimmings and generate 2D/3D displays, size charts, sewing patterns and gradings. We offer you a colour concept as well as material proposals. You set the target prices, we assume the cost and time control throughout the whole projects. We communicate with suppliers and garment manufacturers. Prototypes are subjected to all necessary tests and checks (test use, suter test, fit checking). According to statutory provisions, we prepare the goods for certification and material content and care identification.

We guide the whole process from pattern design to series maturity. The final stages are the release of production and the production and quality control.

Diemelstadt. A team at the heart of nature.

The motorbike is our home. We are cross-country and marathon runners, love winter sports and know well about the requirements of general and forestry work clothing.

We are driven by passion! We live our designs! We work meticulously on them right up to success! We are inventors!
