Dear reader,

 

my name is Claudia Hagn and I have been successfully working in the international textile industry as a textile designer and developer of high quality (mostly) woven fabrics since many years. At the age of 16, I fell in love with my current profession and from then on steadily pursued my professional development. After my training in Münchberg (focus on weaving production), I became very young studio manager of the medium-sized Terry weaving Floringo, then switched to

fashion and damasks of the Christian Dierig GmbH and finally founded

in my mid 20s my own textile studio "Hagn-Design".

 

My wish was to learn more different textile technics and to travel to

weaving mills all over the world.

 

I bought my first CAD design from my self-saved contract from the

German company Grosse Jacquard machines. To be able to program the

technical datas for the weaving machines.

By my affinity to machines, computers and binding technology was the

service of the studio immediately ordered worldwide. No way was too

far for me and no country too dangerous for that.
Likewise, I taught designers in collection creation and binding

technology or coaching salesmen for the exciting presentation of the

new collections on the market.

 

In 2008, I developed private labels and registered a patent. So I specialized more in the creation of theme worlds, because I knew early that this is the success of the future, if you want to stand out from the cheap market. One of the brands - "Created in Hell" - has been successfully recorded by well-known dealers in Germany and abroad and has received several television presences. As a result, I became more and more involved with marketing, branding and sales, which also benefited my clients and their collections. At the same time, I founded my own marketing agency, which exclusively dealt with presentation, web design and programming, photography, catalog production, trade fair presentation, showroom and sales for the textile sector.

 

By this time, 2 permanent employees and up to 14 freelancers (designers, graphic artists, computer scientists, photographers) had already supported me in the meanwhile my two studios in Germany and in Turkey.

 

In 2015, due to my extensive knowledge, I got a very good permanent job offer from India and switched to management and sales to build the European headquarters of Welspun Global Brands in the retail and hospitality sector. I gave my studio abroad.

In 2017, I left Welspun again and took the time to take care intensely to my ill mother before she died.

In 2018 I founded Textile Concepts to bundle the sum of my experiences and contacts to the customers. These can now be ordered - in addition to design and technology, marketing, branding, help with assortment shopping and collection sales - in my new studio. I am happy to provide my worldwide contacts to various producers and suppliers for production orders.

 

It is very important to me to work closely and reliably with customers on a trusting level over the long term so that optimal results can be achieved.

For me, my job is not a profession, but a vocation. I am a visionary, with a lot of courage and passion for it.
Films to it u.a. HERE and THERE - because yes, I can prove it all ;-)

I look forward to your contact,

 

Yours Claudia Hagn
