Varteks d.d., Croatia’s leading clothing manufacturing company with a nationwide sales network of fashion stores, was founded in 1918. During its almost  a century-old tradition it has continuously aimed for excellence and developed according to market and customer needs, while retaining its quality and distinctiveness.

Over the last 100 years of existence Varteks has become a synonym for classic elegance. 

With stylish and remarkably designed collections it has dressed numerous generations, shared a part in most inspiring memories and is renowned for its quality clothing.

There are no generations not related to Varteks – as its employees, scholarship beneficiaries, suppliers, business partners, ambassadors or buyers.

Varteks has always been the first and best neighbour: since 1952, its stores can be found in all the cities of the region with collections of premium quality suits and formal wear for men and elegant classical fashion for women.

For enthusiasts who want something more personalised or different, Varteks has developed an exclusive Made to Measure service for suits and coats.
