Since 2005, we have led efforts to improve the design of apparel and gear in the outdoor and active markets.
WERX was founded in 2005, to work with leading apparel and gear companies in their quest to break new levels of performance, and innovate in new categories. We enjoy working on products we use in activities we love, and strive to re-think new ways of construction, fit, and function. We listen to loud music, drink lots of energy drinks, fly around in prop planes, beat up and test a lot of product, challenge factories, dismantle garments, and live in illustrator.
Based at 10,000ft in Breckenridge Colorado, the WERX team has the opportunity to have the outdoor elements at their finger tips. Whether it be able to actively watch the outdoor community engage in their activities, for trend purposes, or may it give the opportunity to test concepts, gear, and equipment right out our front doors, it truly allows us to be in the heart of an amazing environment that feeds our creativity and inspires us daily. Our studio is set up in the way that is conducive to product design summits, proto reviews, and energetic brainstorming meetings.
Our Asia Office
Since 2009 we have operated a WERX office in Pakistan, with full time WERX staff, to handle operations in Western Asia that we do not travel to frequently. This office supports design, manages sourcing & production from this region, and gives us an advantage to help fulfill the needs of our clients.
