WELLENSTEYN, the primary authentic “work-wear”-jacket for both sexes.
Tested and approved functionality, innovative fabrics and excellent quality for all purposes. 60 years ago Adolf Wuttke began his business as a welding rod reseller in Hamburg, but soon launched the production for deep submerge mechanical instruments. These devices, i.e. “Kastengreifer” a means for getting up sand from the sea bottom) or “Planktonhai” (an instrument to catch plankton from the sea) are still in use worldwide!
Adolf Wuttke´s customers – the German Shipyard Industry -. ever since needed sturdy, resistant and everlasting work-wear. At Wuttkes´s in Hamburg heavy, seaworthy and waxed sailcloth was tailormade, the so called “Deutschleder” (German Leather).
Out of this design and demand functional protective clothing created, which qualified for off-shore work in rough and stormy sea.
These decades of knowledge in performance, ergonomics concerning the requirement for tough and practical work-wear, Thomas Wuttke entered the company 1986 and began to create a new generation of functional jackets.
WELLENSTEYN – Fusion of Function and fashion
Nowadays the WELLENSTEYN-jacket is more popular than ever. The Brandungsparker for use in rough sea or at shipyards, the Cliffjacket or the Manchester Mantel for the daily challenges in big cities.
For action-oriented application: the Golfjacket on the green fee or the Engelsjacke in deep powder snow.
Also the permanent improvement in fabrics, functionality and last but not least the stylish statement is a permanent challenge in the creation of WELLENSTEYN-clothing-since generations. The owner permanently supervises the production site himself, several times a year, to maintain WELLENSTEYN´s quality at its highest level.
