As both CEO and lead designer, Patrick Stieger is the engine and the fuel behind thesign. A native of Switzerland, Patrick combines the best of European traditions with American innovation. He fell in love with textiles at a young age, inspired by his father, company founder Engelbert Stieger. His father also instilled in Patrick’s a deep commitment to excellence, and pride in the Stieger Company name.
thesign collections reflect Patrick’s style and taste in every sense – classic, strong, elegant, edgy, with an eye to history, and elements of mystery, surprise and illusion. A former race car driver, Patrick brings edge, intensity, and a passion for life into all aspects of his work. As his passion project, thesign represents his finest work to date, both as an artist and designer.
