Dorothee Imhoff and Stephan Himmer launched Gecko! in 1998, introducing garment collections in 100% Irish linen for women, men and children. Using the most exclusive shopping Centre of Pondicherry in Tamil Nadu as their base the collections were an instant success and Gecko! became well known in South India as a brand name. Shoppers from Chennai, Bangalore and Hyderabad were keen to pick up Gecko! products and hence the next step was taken. Gecko! clothes are now available in many cities in India and the network is expanding to this day.



Simultaneously Gecko! started to export and unique collections were designed for far away markets like the Maldives, Canada, Spain, France and Austria.

Of course all of the above means that we are bragging like hell. But anyway, after all those years we still feel like going to the office in the mornings and we enjoy working with our customers.


We are also quite happy about how Gecko! is doing and are planning to stick around. If you are interested to work with us please write a mail.
