Knitting begins with an idea and demands skilled hands

Knitting starts in your head. Every single loop needs to be programmed in CAD software.

Ever since the company was founded in 1927, we have taken pride in our master craftsmanship and ambitious design. To this day, our home and our people are at the centre of what we do.

Production in Austria – A proud tradition with an exciting future

Sustainability is an important part of our company culture. This begins with the way our own knitting technology efficiently prevents waste. Almost 100% of our energy needs are covered independently by water, solar and wind energy. This also helps to secure jobs in the region.

At Kobleder, we show how it is possible to maintain a flow of knowledge across generations and expertise in terms of material and products in the region. This helps secure the future of production sites and creates a culture, design and craftsmanship legacy that is futureproof.
