FUSH˚ – expert marathon clothing manufacturers and suppliers
We have worked with thousands of marathons over the years. And after 17 years of working with so many marathons and perfecting our trade as custom clothing manufacturers, it is safe to say we’re experts in the niche. As we’ve worked for a lot of small marathons, we’ve kept our minimums reasonably low – 150 pieces per design/colour in as many sizes as you need.
Also, take a look at our sportswear page where you can find some of the running t-shirts we made so far.
On our activewear manufacturers page, you can learn more about how we make clothes for exercise.
Additionally, we have an impressive choice of fabrics. That’s because, in our factory in south-east Serbia, we have a total of 8 circular knitting machines with a production cadence of 2.5 tonnes of polyester fabric in a day.
Our trained experts are tending to those machines. Those experts have devised a way to make ultra-light mesh fabric that’s ideal for the summer marathon running. It’s half the weight of a regular running t-shirt fabric but it has the same moisture-wicking abilities. You can see the comparison in the video below. Also, you can take a virtual tour through our knitting mill.
Marathon wear is an integral part of our custom t-shirt manufacturing model.
The running t-shirts are both S size. The one made from ultra-light mesh fabric weighs only 50 grams!
When experts cooperate, magic happens
Having in-house experts has definitely helped us make better marathon clothing. But working with external experts has helped us really pick up the pace.
Such was our cooperation with the Belgrade Running Club (BRC). We made 2 sets of their official running wear clothing line. And the production process was heavily influenced by the on-field results of our samples tested by the guys from BRC. You can read more about that cooperation in this case study.
Even though it’s really great that we have worked with so many races over the years, running a business of a private label marathon clothing manufacturer has one downside to it. Not many events want to share where their clothes came from. That’s why we can showcase just a tiny portion of our portfolio.
Anyway, here are marathons that worked with us and were happy to let us share that information with the world:
Both events have trusted us with their official gear for races in 2018 and 2019. Even though coronavirus heavily affected marathons worldwide, Wizz Air Skopje Marathon 2020 was held and FUSH˚ made the official marathon tees.
FUSH˚ marathon clothing range
You can see both the marathon clothing made for events as well as for running clubs. Swipe for more.
From us, you can get bespoke marathon t-shirts (short and long sleeve), tank tops, sports bras, skirts, shorts, marathon singlets, and leggings. There are two ways in which we can make these products for you:
- We can offer complete solutions from our vast database
- We can start to make your product from scratch. That’s because we are an OEM clothing manufacturer)
Chafing is not a word in the FUSH˚ dictionary, so rest assured that your marathon runners will feel comfortable wearing our running apparel. That’s because we have flatlock sewing machines that ensure your running wear has flat seams.
Just remember that you can rely on our designers to either materialize your design or provide you with their own design solution. Therefore, production-wise, there’s no way you’ll “hit the wall” when working with us.
Ethical and sustainable clothing manufacturer
Social and environmental responsibility are becoming more important in the corporate world. And they definitely should. We believe that you, as a marathon organizer care about running your races as sustainably and ethically as possible. Otherwise, you probably wouldn’t even land on our website.
With that in mind, we are excited to report that:
- We pay no less than 20% over the national minimum wage to our employees
- We pay premium rates for overtime
- We pay childbirth and marriage bonuses
In addition to social end environmental responsibility, we are focused on efficiency too. That’s why we run an all-under-one-roof operation. All your customized clothes will be made in 2 factories in Serbia (south-eastern Europe) so 0% of the manufacturing will be outsourced. As a result, you will definitely know where your marathon apparel was made and so will your runners.
As certified courses need certified manufacturers, here’s what we bring to the table when it comes to sustainability certifications:
- ISO certificates (9001:2014, 14001:2014, 45001:2018)
- OEKO-TEX, GRS, and GOTS certificates for yarns and fabrics we use and make
- OEKO-TEX certificate for the inks we use in our dye-sublimation printers
- OEKO-TEX certificate for trimmings
As mentioned before, we make our own fabrics, so our carbon emissions are lower due to not relying on imports that much.
That should have been enough information to entice you to send us an enquiry. There’s a contact form below waiting for you to fill it in. So do it!
