Altex Profile




About Altex

Altex is a family-owned clothing company founded in Athens, Greece, in 2003 by Yannis K. Alexiou.

Today, Altex employs more than 155 experienced fashion specialists in Greece and the production countries, designing, developing, selling and marketing Altex’s brands. Until last year Altex focus has been on men’s fashion; however, since 2015 Altex introduced its complete women’s line which is based on the fashion DNA of the Funky Buddha Brand.

Today, our clothes and accessories target young men and women, and they are sold under the brand names: 2NDSKIN (2009), FUNKY BUDDHA (2003) and GARAGE55 (2011). Altex clothes and accessories are now sold in Greece through over 400 independent retailers, as well as through a network of branded FUNKY BUDDHA stores all over Greece, Cyprus and several other countries.

Altex does not own any factories, instead we co-operate with loyal suppliers. Approximately 60% of the production takes place in China and the rest in various other countries.

Throughout the past 3 years, Altex has been characterized by good quality at the right price and our philosophy has always been: “Sell more at lower prices”. This is also true today.

Our vision is to always develop and market our brands in accordance to European fashion trends and to create a distinct mix of brands which will appeal mainly – but not only – to the trends-aware 16-35 age group.

We are humble and together we work hard. We base our co-operation on trust, partnership and honesty. We treat all people as individuals but we think and act as a team. Therefore we succeed.

The backbone of Altex is our family feeling. We help each other and have unlimited faith in our relatives. We show our identity in the good examples we set for one another. We are proud of our heritage. It is both our link to the past and the foundation of our future.
