About us

WHY NOT has been producing and distributing textiles for over 20 years. We are manufacturers and product developers, offering a full sports and leisure wear service.
Nowadays, speed and short reaction times throughout the textile processing workflow are of crucial importance. Customer-oriented project management, direct contact with the sample department in Hamburg as well as short and unbureaucratic decision-making processes guarantee that customers’ orders are fulfilled within a few weeks, from the creative idea to the finished product.

A constant presence in our manufacturing operations ensures the social framework conditions are in place. In the research and development division, we are constantly working on optimising manufacturing processes and quality assurance systems, as well as on new technical developments. In our supply chain, environmental standards are constantly being improved.
