How did textilwerk.com come about? Who came up with the idea for it?
Our company was founded in December 2016 by Dan Schmitz and Maik Ehmke. At that time still under the name oyoyo. It all started with an idea from Dan, who wanted to support well-known and unknown designers * to have their designs produced in smaller quantities. Because this is often not feasible for freelance designers due to the high minimum quantities of the producers. In addition, Dan Schmitz was of the opinion that the retailer should not decide which design is worth producing, but the customers. The online shop started in March 2019. After an exciting, successful first year, oyoyo was renamed textilwerk.com at the end of March 2020.
