The founder of it fits, Katharina Schaus, has set herself the goal of supporting the textile industry worldwide in the development of ecological, innovative and future-oriented concepts. These
always have the aim of being marketable, adapted to customer needs, functional and suitable for enhancing the company's image. Our aim is to ensure that social, ecological and economic aspects,
in short sustainability, fit together in business activities. It fits is a competent cooperation partner for textile and clothing companies that compete with sustainable strategies. Working
together with you to make ecological projects a success is a central goal of it fits.
Our location in Konstanz on Lake Constance enables us to maintain a very personal relationship with our customers (above all) in the DACH region (Germany, Austria, Switzerland) and to recharge our batteries for our work in this environment every day.
