INDNAT is a one man company. It´s about making Trousers, Jeans & Shorts by hand for you. Design, pattern drafting, garment construction, sales and service, all under one roof, from a single source. From the craftsman_* directly to the customer.

All garments are carefully crafted by hand_* and sewn one piece at a time or in limited production series. Good quality and durability of the garments are the standard by which i work, one that i continously try to improve. Important criteria for the designs are their use and the production method.

There is a main role in the design inspiration and that is in a big part taken by the curiosity towards clothing for craftsmen, traditional garments up to men’s suits. Its shapes, the functional details, the process methods used, the materials, the traditional tailoring techniques and even sometimes the old stories that go with these are the input translated into a refined form. In combination with new ideas on detail and limited only by simplicity, these are the aspiration of craftsmanship that i hold in honor.

Silent sports like climbing, cycling, surfing … the ocean and the mountains, … the interest in different handcrafts … a down to earth mentality and so much more, most of all that what i can not explain with words are ingredients_* for the design, fine-tuning and the spirit of the products.


Besides cotton fabrics like moleskin, twill, canvas, and cord, I work with denim and fabrics made from EtaProof®. I use particular loden wool fabrics from the mountains of Austria, as well as hemp and linen fabrics from the Mühlviertel region. Additionally, I offer excellent suit fabrics and tweeds for trousers.

My focus in sourcing fabrics is on 100% natural fibers. With few exceptions, all cotton fabrics and some linen come from controlled organic cultivation. The inner linings of all clothing items are made from organic cotton.


There is the option to choose an INDNAT Standard – Size with various lengths/hem widths from the size table ‘Ready to Wear’ or to have the trousers customized ‘Made to Measure’ to fit you.

By providing your measurements, a personalized paper pattern will be created and kept, or the ordered size will be noted. This allows for the easy reorder of additional trousers or shorts in various fabrics, even with alterations.

Mailorder / Selling

All trousers can be ordered with the help of the Online – Catalogue. In Girona you can come to the Workshop, I’ll show you the collection.

Twice a year I make a custom fitting in Munich and Bavarian Pre-Alps. On these days I offer a personal fitting. With the help of the presented sample trousers and all fabrics, my customers can order some new INDNAT trousers right there.


The catalogue provides you with informations about the materials and its origins. I am not allowed to show textile seals, I am not authorized to do so. This is not financially possible for a small workshop. However, I offer every customer as much transparency as possible in every area, please just ask. I am the “social standard” in production, I would like to say: All trousers are made by me.


This Statement calls for responsibility towards nature, the resources at our disposal, and our dependence upon them. The understanding of this should always be the underlying foundation to my inspiration and professional approach, for all steps and decisions to come.
