Our Story

The German knitting family started their business in 1895, Schmallenberg, Germany.

The FALKE scene is made up of multilingual globetrotters, headstrong individuals, curious explorers, fanatical perfectionists, sensitive creative types and incorrigible aesthetes. Their imagery, their interior design and their clothing are visible expressions of their instincts. We feel at home in their midst. We constantly keep them in mind as we pursue the perfect design and the best handcrafted quality.

Our friends who share our ethos expect their understanding of aesthetics to be perfectly translated into modern clothing. We make jumpers, bodies, fine tights and legwear whose designs help transform our shared sense of style into a reality with harmonious fabrics and colours. No, you aren't dreaming.

Being able to produce in South Africa is an inspiration and a privilege, one that we in Australia are proud to continue. At Falke we have a collective of 650 craftsmen and women who have weaving and knitting in their blood, as much as the Falke family does. Our knitters were the lifeblood of our business. They still are. We walked this road together, and every stitch adds up.

Every step is a step
closer to a better way.
