The history of Wolford is inextricably linked with the history of fashion. Art, culture and architecture influence the style and taste of every age. Nevertheless, the distinctive aesthetics of Wolford have run like a thread through the company’s history since 1950. What began in Bregenz, Austria, with the foundation of a company to producing stockings for women from pure silk and rayon, has become an internationally expanding fashion label with a broad product portfolio.

The innovative knitting technology continues to be the focal point of the brand, enabling the company to stand out from the competition. Ever open to creative ideas, Wolford shows how knitting technology can be turned into unique products through its partnerships with prominent designers. The visual representation of the brand is distinctive.
