About usWith the creative heart in Hamburg, Iris von Arnim has been interpreting the zeitgeist in the form of cashmere and high-quality knitwear for 45 years: favourite pieces that last a lifetime. Luxury knitwear for today and tomorrow - timeless, long-lasting, pure.
"Our values? Quality. Trust. Personality. Craftsmanship. Tradition. Honesty. An endless ambition for our work. The employees as part of the family. The values of a family business. And our history. My mother's. With this spirit, we want to continue telling the story."
Passion for over 45 years
“I like to think of knitwear as a way of life. As a friend who knows best what you need at the moment. Rather quiet – with that particular touch that flatters without being overwhelming.”
IRIS VON ARNIM
The designer’s home – located in Hamburg-Harvestehude – is the headquarter and where the creative departments are based. Part of the brand are its stores in Sylt, Munich, Vienna, and the online shop.
Trust and loyalty are the basis on which Iris von Arnim's creativity flourishes. Selected partners have accompanied the family business for many years: People who understand their craft perfectly and show the same appreciation for precious materials like cashmere.
Mother and son
Born only a few years after the company was founded in 1976, Valentin von Arnim grew up between cashmere, knitwear and designs. With Iris as creative director, he took over the management of the strategic and operative business in 2009.
Since 2013, the UOMO collection, which Valentin established, has been an integral part of the brand. His vision: design for the knitwear enthusiast, born with a global mindset.
Like his mother, Valentin is passionate and ambitious in everything he does - always curious and with a clear sense of quality.
