A close-knit family.

Our philosophy

Phil Petter – the company comprises Corinna and Kurt Petter and their daughter Anja in addition to a committed and friendly team of long-standing, highly qualified employees. Here it is the traditional values which count – the discussions and work processes involved are both ongoing and honest. The team in Dornbirn works at refining the perfect product each and every day in line with their own high standards. We never do anything unless we are entirely convinced.

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.

The beginning

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.

Perfection from the specialists.

We focus our full attention on knitwear. A good end product requires a perfectly equipped andfully integrated production process with cutting-edge machinery and long-standing employees to guarantee visible and tangible benefits for the wearer. As a manufacturer, we place a great deal of importance on hand-made production using both traditional and modern techniques. We recognise the challenges of our times and always ensure that we can offer that extra edge with our special materials, finishing effects, special cuts, surprising details and skilful implementation.
