RU Enterprise

As part of the research project, students can acquire practical know-how and directly apply the knowledge they have gained in the TEXOVERSUM Faculty of Textiles degree programmes. They are coached by experienced experts from the industry. Students also receive valuable impulses for their work in the fashion start-up from practice-orientated courses. RU Enterprise is supported by TD Alumni, the faculty's non-profit alumni association.


What do you do at RU Enterprise?

  • We design and sell limited-edition unisex collections. The focus is on sustainability and high-quality details to create timeless favourite and memorable pieces.
  • We work along the textile value chain - from design draft to purchasing & production to marketing - and get to know important areas of the company in a very practical way.
  • We learn about start-up methods and take entrepreneurial action while being coached by professionals from the fashion industry.
  • We attach great importance to values such as sustainability, quality, diversity and community, which we endeavour to demonstrate through our products.

Fashion Start-Up as a research project

RU Enterprises was launched for the first time in 2017. RU stands for Reutlingen University and at the same time for the question "aRe yoU?". The idea: to give students a practical experience of the individual steps within the textile value chain as part of a research project.
