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.
