True to our name, our journey commenced in 1888 against the backdrop of the formidable Dachstein. Here, the challenging terrain and climate underscored the necessity for resilient attire. Enter Loden fabric, renowned for its enduring strength, primarily employed as workwear. Post-World War II, Loden's role evolved to embrace functional clothing, adopted by notable mountaineers like Heinrich Harrer, famed for "Seven Years in Tibet," elevating its significance.
In the recent years, we've channeled further investments into our in-house clothing line, recognised as Steiner1888. Here as well, our unwavering commitment to quality persists. Our signature Mandling loden, harmoniously blended with select premium natural materials, forms the cornerstone of this endeavour.
