WHAT WE DO

We make basics – simply good basics.

We make T-shirts, henleys, sweatshirts, tanks, knitwear, and accessories.

We are specialists in making unique fabrics on rare 100-year-old loopwheelers in Germany for an authentic vintage appearance

as well as developing new styles with contemporary looks and feel.

All created with well-considered designs and made of high-quality sustainable materials.

Most of our styles are all-time favorites:

they are all year-round essentials, good for any look and mood.

Simply your reliable companions for your good moments in life.
