Akris

Since 1922, Akris has been defining the pinnacle standard for excellence in production and masterful technique. Akris is an independent family owned fashion house established 90 years ago by Alice Kriemler-Schoch in St. Gallen: a Swiss town celebrated for its truly exquisite embroidery and advanced textile traditions. Today, the brothers Albert and Peter Kriemler are the third generation to lead the business.

Akris fabrics are custom-produced in specialized mills in St. Gallen and Northern Italy, sometimes the development of a fabric may take up to several years. Akris clothing is then pieced together in the ateliers of St. Gallen, Zurich, and Ticino by masterful seamstresses. Akris is known for the precision hand finishing that completes the production of each piece: a double-faced cashmere jacket requires two and a half days to complete, for example.
