ATA is the name of a clothing factory which operated in Israel between 1935 and 1980, a nostalgic name in Israeli fashion history. The factory designed clothing with fine materials made for long hours of work. The brand was resurrected in 2011 with the purpose to bring life to the spirit of Israel’s first few years, which marked the beginning of something new to the Jews who came to build this country from all ends of the world. ATA‘s clothing lines, for both men and women, are comfortable and basic but with an added benefit of more modern materials, silhouettes, and a vintage touch.
