Dutch brand Megmeister finds its roots in the German word of Meister meaning ‘master’ or ‘craftsman’. The word meister is literally woven into our DNA, and outlines our approach to designing and producing the world’s best, most technical, most effective base layers.
The idea behind the Megmeister concept came from our founder, Jos Ruiterman. Through working for over 20 years in the textile industry and dealing with many of the world’s biggest sports brands with performance textiles, Jos realised that there was a huge opportunity to create “high end performance wear”. He initially focused his attention on a new type of base layer capable of delivering ‘Next Generation Performance’ to aspiring athletes across the sports and leisure activity spectrum.
Achieving the goal of delivering the perfect base layer, would mean solving the major problem that has stumped sports brands over the years, and that is how to create a product that delivers perfect fit, comfort and performance without any compromises.
To help fulfil his dream, Jos assembled a team of fellow ‘Meisters’ including a textiles aficionado; a garment technician and a sportswear manufacturing specialist. After much research and development with performance athletes, they created DRYNAMO – a new garment construction technology - made of yarn designed specifically for high-performance athletes that features revolutionary moisture wicking capabilities; hypoallergenic qualities; ultra-low weight; supreme comfort and superior breathability.
Through their DRYNAMO innovation, they were able to deliver a 100% seam free garment, which offers friction free comfort. This combination of innovative DRYNAMO yarn and revolutionary production method, is the foundation for our Megmeister base layer collection.
But this is just the start, as the true sign of a ‘Meister’, is an on-going commitment to innovation and striving to develop new products featuring this ‘Next Generation Performance’. At Megmeister, with our culture of expert craftsmanship, we are constantly looking to re-invent our methods of production and develop new performance yarns and materials that can be used in products that maximise performance across a wide range of sports including cycling, running, football, golf and hiking.
So, if you take your sport seriously, we think you’ll be delighted to experience the ‘Megmeister’ difference.
