State of Art, a statement of style Ever since 1936, the knitting workshop of the Westerman family had focused on baby clothing. In the mid-1980s the family company took the name Albert Westerman Group, and the main activity of the business changed. Increased competition, new materials such as terry cloth, and a lower birth rate meant a different direction was needed. Albert Westerman was able to tap into an upcoming market with the production of pullovers, among other things. As of 1987, these items were sold under three own brands, State of Art, Collumn and Tender(grass). When the company started producing less and distributing more, the decision was made to proceed with the strongest brand only: State of Art. It is not a coincidence that this is also the brand in which the late Albert Westerman's passion for classic cars is most keenly shown. The very first State of Art Store opened its doors in Almelo in 1994.
