TRADITION MEETS INNOVATION - ONLY THOSE WHO KNOW THEIR PAST CAN SHAPE THE FUTURE.
In 1884, Albert Handschin and Carl Ronus founded a knitwear factory in the Swiss town of Liestal named HANRO - the foundation for an international success story was laid. As pioneers in the field of circular knitting, they manufactured top quality undergarments on machines specially developed for the purpose. Right From the early days, the company focused on high quality natural fibres.
More than a century's of experience in developing. Our creations stands for passion and an attentive eye to detail. Our designers create their designs still by hand, furnishing imaginative sketches and draping them attentively on custom-made mannequins. In every detail, they look for something special and unique. Our products embody elegance and aesthetics in every fibre.
It takes creativity, diligence, patience and a passion for detail to develop filigree lace or opulent embroidery. Stylish details such as the finest St. Gallen embroidery or French Leavers lace are elaborately hand-crafted by our own designers in cooperation with renowned European manufacturers. They add that extra special something in unmistakeable Hanro styles.
Those who wear Hanro garment for the first time are surprised how soft the cotton feels, how airy and light the wool is, and how delicate the silk mixes are. For us, true luxury means feeling completely at home in your own skin. Fabrics must be of the very highest quality and origin to meet this demand. Hanro only processes hand-picked, long-staple quality cottons such as Pima cotton or Egyptian Giza cotton, as well as top quality Merino wool, finest silk and the very best Swiss cotton yarns and threads. That makes Hanro Unique.
Our demands on quality and excellence extend to our production sites. No expense is spared to meet these demands, which includes Hanro manufacturing and finishing our own fabrics.
