About us

Our history

It started because of a yearning. Don’t all great things start that way? Roofer Franz Falke-Rohen worked as a knitter during the winter months, then just a few moons before the turn of the century, the impulse came: he made up his mind to set up his own knitting mill in Germany. The rest, as they say, is history.


For the Falke family, quality is an end in itself. Every detail warrants being perfected with a passion verging on obsession. For over a century, four Falke generations have worked zealously to achieve an almost unthinkable measure of perfection, making underwear, hosiery, socks and sports performance apparel in exquisite harmonies of fabrication, technological design, color and styling.
