The AFT Group – Who’s behind Sumissura and Hockerty?
The AFT group was founded in 2008 by three Spanish friends. They launched the Hockerty website first, and then its sister site Sumissura a few years later. They have combined their expertise in new technologies to create a 3D configurator which is extremely fast and efficient, and has been honored many times with awards for its design and performance. The AFT group is looking to use its knowledge to benefit other made-to measure products. They are also considering European manufacturing.
Hockerty has been improving its offerings and products since the beginning. This is thanks to the feedback of its customers and community. Hockerty has an avant-garde approach, and “zero waste” optics. They encourage everyone to consider their purchase and promote “slow fashion”. Hockerty believes that there is no compulsive buying behavior that will be left in the cupboard.
Clients are required to design from A to Z their product.
Acquisition of innovative companies and new products
It shouldn’t surprise anyone that sales have increased since Hockerty &amp;. Sumissura has launched new products and services, including custom-made shoes and jeans for men. In the next few months, Sumissura will also be offering custom-made jeans for women. They also purchased a Spanish company called ‘Bullfeet’ that makes custom-made sneakers using vegan leather. This should be a welcome development for their digital customers.
The group plans to expand its product range and use its expertise to create other customized products in the future to be closer to customers’ needs.
Comprehensive and steady growth
Hockerty sees expansion as the only thing that is possible in an age when fashion’s future is digital. The company is already selling its products in all major markets and plans to expand their reach into new markets. Hockerty’s growth has been remarkable since its inception thirteen years ago, when it expanded throughout Europe and the United States. This market is currently its largest by turnover.
Alberto Gil, Hockerty’s cofounder, stated that “our products are produced upon demand, which means that we have a true zero-waste mindset in our production processes. This makes our company truly sustainable.” Gil stated that the partners of Hockerty have extensive experience in the technology sector which enabled them to enter this business model right from the beginning.

Another step towards expansion
Hockerty’s first brand ambassador was Spanish Olympic champion Saul Craviotto. He is a five-time kayaking medalist and is on his way to Paris 2024. Hockerty is known for its custom-made clothing. Hockerty decided to go beyond its comfort zone and create an exclusive collection with Saul that will allow him to feel great outside of the water: Hockerty & Saul Craviotto.
Saul’s personality, professional background, and values convinced everyone to work with him. He is deeply human and puts his all in the service of others. His family, his sport and country are his first priorities. Then, there’s his Spanish friends. In close collaboration with Saul, the Hockerty employees worked tirelessly on this project.
Saul Craviotto, a Spanish athlete who has won the most Olympic medals
Saul Craviotto, a father, a Spanish officer, and a kayaker, is one of the most successful Spanish Olympic medalists, with five medals in Beijing 2008 (London 2012), Rio 2016 (Rio 2016), and Tokyo 2020. With the aim of winning five Olympic medals at Paris 2012, Rio 2016 and Tokyo 2020, and competing for a sixth medal in the 2024 Olympics, he will continue to face new challenges.
AKA COMFORTABLE OUTSIDE THE KAYAK?
It is crucial to know what you should wear in every situation. It is important to know what garment and fabric will make you feel comfortable and happy. We designed several fabrics that were inspired by Saul’s kayak to help him expand his comfort zone. When you examine the details closer, the subtle patterns speak of Saul’s kayak, but blur into a light blue like the fabric of his top shirts. Hockerty.com has two of Saul Craviotto’s signature shirts in a limited edition or while the fabric lasts. Saul chose classic, lilac-toned dress shirts in the same style as the many suits in gray. The Saul Craviatto look is completed by a classic trench coat in beige. Saul chose a brown wool coat for colder days. Hockerty now has a limited edition Saul’s collection.
“I feel more comfortable in tailored clothes, I feel more relaxed, more at ease, and more agile. Aside from my athletic body, I have a unique body. My upper body is more powerful than my legs. It is very satisfying to be able to wear comfortable, sustainable and tailored clothing. I feel more confident about myself.” says Saul Craviatto.
Even though it seems like a successful career, Saul has had to deal with many difficulties, difficult moments, and even defeats. Saul has had to step out of his comfort zone to learn, improve and gain more time on the stopwatch. He continues to be the best version of himself. Learning is a process that helps us expand our comfort zone.
Hockerty’s extensive range of products, as well as the fact that they can all be made to Saul’s exact measurements, allow athletes to find the right clothes, whatever their weight or size.
