Learn from the best.

We apply over 60 years of research and experience to training that is focused on specific product types or customized to your team and suppliers.

Topics including 3D technologies, patterns and construction are offered through Hohenstein Academy webcasts or tailored training, workshops at our location or yours, and events around the world.

Learn by doing.

Through basic theoretical knowledge + concrete, practical examples, we transfer knowledge from our experienced clothing engineers to your product/design/sourcing teams. During discussion groups, participants ask questions and exchange ideas.


Digitize effectively.

  • Efficient use of 3D technology and material parameters
  • Troubleshooting to improve fit
  • Sound in-house workflows
  • Supplier training and manuals to meet brand-specific requirements

Our pattern workshops at Hohenstein headquarters are focused on specific product groups - from shapely bras to comfortable loungewear to elegant suits. We give you tips and tricks for pattern-making that help turn design into reality and show you how to recognize and resolve fit problems in patterns. Workshop participants send a product with an imperfect pattern for our textile engineers to optimize. Then, we discuss solutions during the workshop.

In customized workshops, we address your specific projects and needs. Together, we discuss the opportunities and challenges for optimizing your product's pattern design. Practical examples and training materials facilitate our the discussion, which can take place at Hohenstein headquarters in Germany or at your facility.


Learn how to create your own patterns, recognize fit problems, design model patterns and add the final touches to your production model.
