The Stutterheim story began on the small island Arholma, home to an old fishing village in the Stockholm archipelago, about 80km (or 8 Swedish miles) north of the city.
Here is where Alexander Stutterheim discovered his grandfather’s old raincoat sitting in a barn. A relic from his grandfather’s days as a fisherman in the early 60s, the coat was heavy, black, durable and timeless in its design.
Inspired by his find, Alexander generated the idea of recreating a timeless, durable raincoat. This is the origin of the Stutterheim story.
Inspired by the quality and feel of this old coat, Alexander set out to re-produce a modern version of this classic – and so our first raincoat, the Arholma, was born. The original premium raincoat, designed in Stockholm, made in Europe.
Today, we continue to produce modern interpretations based on this model and the ideas behind it. Made in our very own rubberised cotton, the classic Stutterheim raincoat is designed to be comfortable, durable, stylish and rainproof for years to come.
