Based in Austria, Wolford has transformed into a global icon since the brand launched in 1950. Founded by retailer Walter Palmers and industrialist Reinhold Wolf, their objective was to create stockings for women made from pure silk and rayon. Today, Wolford has expanded into legwear, apparel, lingerie, swimwear and accessories. The innovative knitting technology created by Wolford continues to be the focal point of the iconic brand, enabling the company to become the most famous hosiery brand in the world.
The history of Wolford is inseparably connected with the history of fashion. Influences from art, culture, architecture and zeitgeist influence the style and construction of every collection. The distinctive aesthetic of Wolford creations runs like a common thread through the company's history spanning more than six decades. Wolford has always blended technological developments with innovation and an extensive quality control system.
Wolford's focus is on the female silhouette, representing timeless elegance and luxury while incorporating current trends. Through a holistic understanding of the layer closest to the skin, Wolford is to be worn every day, on every occasion, by every woman.
