The clothing manufactory for men creates customized garments in a sustainable way directly in its store.
Handmade clothing for men
Here, just like in Zurich several decades ago, the sewing machines still rattle away in the back of the store: the clothing manufacturer, Markant, produces high-quality men’s garments using exclusively European fabrics.
The concept of urban manufacturing allows the craft to be experienced close up: while browsing and trying on items in the store, customers can see at first-hand how the individual pieces are sewn together. Markant produces its garments locally, in a socially compatible manner, and without long supply routes. In order to avoid over-production and/or large stocks, the Markant team make most of the items to order. In this way, individual wishes regarding fit, shape, and fabric can optimally be taken into account.
In the pretty store near the central tram stop, Stauffacher, every customer is sure to find his personal favorite item of clothing.
