2015: Automatic screenprinting machine

Looks like every year has to start with something new! This time we extended the company with a new space where we established a new printing room to fulfill the demand by the customers. By this we also baught a lot of screenprinting equipment like this full automatic screenprinting machine you can see here.

Too big for the doors so the printing machine comes in through the window.

Moving in the digital printer through the window.

2014: Digital t-shirt printing

In February 2014 our new digital t-shirt printer arrived. Unfortunately it was not fitting through the doors so we had to bring it in through the window. That was also very tight and high! Oh oh...

2012: New screenprinting machine

New rooms = more space. Time for a new more professional printing machine. Because it is so much fun we directly stressed the limits with manual multicolour printed t-shirts!

2011: New warehouse!

By the end of 2011 we moved out of our dark basement rooms the first time and we really enjoyed the plenty of light in our rooms. Very good for the mental state of mind! :-)

Summer 2007: The first ThokkThokk Shirts

Later in this year the idea was to create some different and even more progressive t-shirts with a radically minimal design.  The result was the iconic "Squared" T-Shirt design.

Here on the photo you can see it photographed on myself wearing it in Sidges close to Barcelone at the first "Photoshooting".... ;-)

The first typical "ThokkThokk" t-shirt with the "Squared"design.

Startup anno 2007! ;-) The early days of ThokkThokk.

2007: It all started small...

....very small. To be precise it was only a 12 m² room for office, living room, kitchen, sleeping and storage but also a lot of fun. Everything was self made, improvised and learning by doing.
After starting to sell some ethical & sweatshop free shoes through the internet the first t-shirts sweatshop free t-shirts with own designs were developed. The t-shirts under the name of Plussquared were the predecessor of ThokkThokk. Everything with a lot of bold colours and very playful.
