Aparso is one of a few brands that produces in fully owned manufacturing facilities. With production and development in our own hands we can guarantee an efficient, fair and sustainable supply chain. Our set up allows us to provide highest quality in materials and workmanship at a fair price.
Aparso is a fully integrated international outdoor brand. Established in 2015 as a German Chinese Joint Venture between a high-tech textile manufacturer from Fuzhou China and a German family owned, specialized business for garment product development. Together building on over 40 years of experience in developing functional outdoor apparel.
With this background we have started to create a selective collection ranging from high quality basic wear to high performance functional apparel. Our German product development teams are working closely with its colleagues in China to maintain highest quality standards. As material and product development experts we love creating products. Except high quality, we care about sustainability of our products. Therefore we aim for natural, sustainable or recycled materials and using hi-tech production technologies that saves the environment.
As one of the top european destinations for outdoor activities with a growing demand for outdoor consumer goods, Slovakia has become our primary market outside of Germany. Together with our local partners we set up a fully owned subsidiary company in the heart of Slovakia’s outdoor tourism region. We want to be present and accessible to cater directly to our growing number of sales partners in Slovakia and Eastern Europe. In quest for experiences – venture beyond ordinary.
