Born in Austria, at home in the world.


Phil Petter is an authentic Austrian product. We are authentic Austrians.

In 1973,Corinna and Kurt Petter began to produce exceptional knitwear

with great enthusiasm in Dornbirn, in the triangular border region between

Austria, Germany and Switzerland. From a hobby to a profession -

Kurt Petter enjoyed ski racing as a young man. The sportswear for

his skiing association was either black or dark blue, as was customary at

that time. He was always crazy about fashion and so decided to wear a bright

yellow self-made pullover with green cuffs and a red collar for the championships.

Despite coming in a long way behind in the first heat and being eliminated

in the second, his pullover certainly made a splash and suddenly everybody

wanted one. And so he came up with the idea of bringing out his own collection.
