PRODUCTION

transparency is an important part of our philosophy, therefore we would like
to introduce you to people behind our great products.

NUNO – THE SUPPLIER OF SANTO TIRSO

 

About 2 years ago we got to know Nuno and since then he has fulfilled every wish when it comes to fabrics. From classic t-shirts made from polyester-cotton fabric to textiles made form 100% organic cotton or wood fibers. In addition to fabric production Nuno is also very familiar with the topic of recycling. Together with his father, he runs a processing plant in which the scraps from various companies are being sorted by color and quality and then pressed into bales. New wonderful fabrics that you will find in many Vresh and Das Merch products are made out of these bales.

JOSÉ – THE PRECISION FREAK

 

Of course, to make sure that your T-shirt fits properly, it has to be perfectly cut. This is ensured by, among others, José. A few years ago he started his own business and now runs with two employees. There, in addition to the Vresh textiles, also a lot of fabrics of the big brands are cut. Working with a small team makes José very flexible and concentrated, therefore we can rely on the accuracy and attention to details of our partner.

BELINHA – THE COLORFUL ONE

 

After the fabric has been made and the individual pieces are cut for your new shirt, it’s time to put on some colors. That’s what Belinha, her aunt and the rest of this professional print shop take care of. Equipped with the best machines needed for screen printing & co. Hundreds of textiles are printed day after day. No matter if it is small detailed print or full print over the whole textile, there are hardly any limits.

PS: If you want to learn more about screen printing, then do not hesitate to contact us directly. From April / May we will be offering workshops in our new flagship store in the Tabakfabrik in Linz -> shop@vresh-clothing.com

RAQUEL & PIEDADE – THE SEWING MASTERS

 

Now we need to make the final step to have finished T-shirt or hoodie. In tailoring process individual parts are sewn together and forms the final product that has a great design. With the utmost precision and a lot of tact, every single part becomes a masterpiece. Raquel, her mother and ten other busy hands work in the mountains over Fafe and make it possible for you to buy so many beautiful items from us. We are proud to be an important partner of this small enterprise and to ensure a continuity with each order.

FILIPE – MASTER PROPER

 

Before landing in our shop or to you all T-shirts are properly tested. Felipe and his team wash and dry our goods with state-of-the-art industrial machinery so that you do not experience any nasty surprises after the first wash. This guarantees the highest-quality and longevity for every single piece.

HÉLDER – THE ONE FOR THE SOCKS

 

Anyone who wants to get dressed in a sustainable manner from the top to the bottom also needs socks. Hélder has built a fast-growing operation from his own garage and now works with highest-quality fabrics that we have in our possesion. From fine yarns, our socks are sewn piece by piece. In order for this to work smoothly, technicians create a program from a simple graphic template. We are simply thrilled with this crew and look forward to many more joint projects.

PEDRO – THE PROFESSIONAL ROUND EMBROIDERED

 

Small motifes and logos are particularly suitable for a stick. In this case Pedro is our contact person. In his small but fine embroidery factory, he makes not only standard embroidery but also very special projects with sequins. In addition to our print shop we also have a competent partner for embroideries with whom we can implement all of our wishes.

MARISA & ELSA – THE JEANSENTHUSIASTS

 

The process looks quite different with our jeans. For over 30 years, the family business, which two sisters have taken over from their mother, has been producing branded jeans for many international and national labels. What we find particularly impressive is that they handle almost the entire process in their own factory. And do that with unbelievable quality. They both helped us from the beginning to develop our own jeans and as you probably know, they did well.

If you want to know more about our production,

SUSTAINABILITY

The V stands for Value and this is where our journey starts. Vresh is a brand for real people. We want to do things we like and also do something good, for people and the planet. Same with Das Merch.

Since 2014 every single piece was produced under fair conditions and in 2016 we even decided to produce only in the European Union. But we are not done yet, on the contrary, this is only the beginning.

 

PRODUCTION 🇵🇹

The North of Portugal is famous for its high-quality fashion products. So we decided to build a network there, where we only work with family-owned enterprises. From yarn to sewing and to the finished product, every single process takes place within 50km range. What is more, we pay extra 20% to the usual price to support these local enterprises.

 

MATERIALS 🌱

Our fabrics are locally produced in Portugal by Nuno who is also an expert in recycled fabrics. All our production waste is collected and recycled but that’s not enough for us.

In 2019 together with Nuno we developed soft and long-lasting fabrics made out of 100% recycled material. We are aiming to produce sustainable clothing without sacrificing comfort or quality. From now on we will start to produce all our products from 100% organic or recycled materials. Our goal is to have fun, enjoy life and also reduce our ecological footprint.

 

PACKAGING 🗳

Avoiding plastic is not that easy but we do it wherever it’s possible. We even try to reuse packaging materials, so please don’t rate our products on our packaging. For sure, every order is packed with love and by hands of ourselves in our headquarters in Linz, Upper Austria.

 

FUTURE 🚀

There are many ideas to make our company even more sustainable and the number one on our list is to make it “CO2-Neutral”. If you have any ideas how to do something good, just let us know -> hello@dasmerch.com

STORY

When we founded Vresh in 2012 we had the idea of a brand, that supports local retailers and the boardsport community. After 5 years we decided to leave the boardsport sector and go more into sustainability. Our aim was to give something back to the nature. The concept took quite a long time to be ready and now it’s time to publish it.

 

TRASH. RECYCLE. CLOTHING.

High-quality is still a promise but sustainability is a duty. Our fabric supplier Nuno is developing soft and long-lasting fabrics made out of 100% recycled material. We choose to produce sustainable clothing without sacrificing comfort and quality

 

THE SIMPLE WAY TO STYLE.

Sustainable production is a big step into a better future but there is more. When we created the new collection we also created a whole new concept of how to dress. Every single piece matches the whole collection. Stop thinking about what to combine. It was never easier. The collection is very basic: high-quality materials, nice cuts and simple branding elements. Based on the concept of the capsule wardrobe we try to reduce the collection to only a few pieces. More collections and pieces will follow. What is more, we design clothes for every situation. Work, fun, sports.QUESTIONS.

 

If you want further information about our new concept and our new collection, contact us directly here.

Best,
Michi & Klaus
