In 1998, Franz Bittmann was looking for technical snowboard clothes. But what he found on the market didn’t meet his expectations. So, at the age of 22, he started his own company. Over the years, the brand eleven developed into one of the most innovative European snowboard and ski clothing enterprises. The brand quickly established itself in over 17 countries throughout Europe and North America and was on the shelves of over 300 shops.
Beside design and sales the management decided to keep the entire marketing and branding in-house to keep the brand authentic and vital. An excellent design department combined with the deep knowledge of production and market mechanisms resulted in increasing requests from a variety of industries. In 2011, the management decided to focus completely on this new business unit.
Today, eleven works as a full-service agency for customers such as Salt Communications, Red Bull, doodah, Swiss Ski, Scott, Credit Suisse and the Swiss society for organization. In 2010, eleven founded the kid outerwear label namuk, which can be purchased worldwide through its own web shop and in selected stores.
