Melancholy under the rain

Stutterheim's vision is to bring great rainwear and accessories, filled with craftsmanship, passion and authenticity brought to you in a true way. The brand is based in Stockholm and has retailers all over the world.

<

Alexander Stutterheim had just recently discovered his grandad's old rain coat in an abandoned barn. At that moment, old memories struck him and he instantly wanted to wear it. It was both stunningly cool and very practical (although as big as a tent). With great care, he brought it back home and imagined it in an updated, contemporary version. A homage to his grandad.

After the discovery, he went out to buy a piece of oilcloth, put it on the kitchen floor and cut out a design using the old coat as a pattern. After some improvements, there it was – the 60's raincoat, updated to fit the modern man and woman.

Alexander took the prototype to the last standing textile factory in Sweden, in the small town of Borås. As soon as he met the manager, Johan Käll and the seamstresses, Birgitta and Lena, he knew they were the right people. A perfect match. With their skills, craftsmanship and great attention to materials and detail, they realized that raincoats should be handmade. A great way to honor his grandad's durable and practical raincoat.

And there it was. The coat. With all its seams taped and sealed. In the very best quality, handmade and with a discreet, classical cut. The first 200 coats – Arholma Svart – were made and sold in Alexander's apartment. Each coat was signed and numbered by the seamstress (they still are) to really make sure the quality matched the very highest of standards.

After a couple of months, he had to move the business to another location. The new store, showroom and headquarters, became the venue for experiments within the realm of rain and darkness. And from now on, it's here where every new idea and product is born.

Alexander managed to give new life to his grandad's old coat. A coat to wear out in the countryside, at the sea or just when strolling around the city. To be well-dressed, even in bad weather conditions, is now possible.

HANDMADE

All of Stutterheim's coats are handmade, with a strong attention to detail. The materials are chosen after a careful process and their seamstresses invest their energy and love into each coat that leaves the factory. Why? Because quality matters, quality makes you feel better, more beautiful and at ease.

An item being handmade in this digital and ever-connected world is something rare. It's the polar opposite to what we are used to – that everything goes very fast and after just six months your favorite coat is already on sale and probably gone before you even had a chance to purchase it. At Stutterheim, the slow is cherished, as well as the handmade and the attention to detail.

The Stockholm Coat. The perfect raincoat in many colors. All seams are welded – double welded actually – to ensure the best protection there is.

The Arholma Coat comes in several colors – all constructed from the finest rubberized cotton there is. It's hand-sewn and each seam is taped by hand to ensure 100% protection while walking in a downpour or a thunder storm. The biggest difference between the Arholma and the Stockholm coat is that Arholma has a beautiful organic cotton lining with a pocket that will carry your phone perfectly and keep it securely protected from the rain. All Arholma coats are numbered and signed by the seamstresses to ensure 100% quality.

The Mosebacke Coat is the A-line version of Stutterheim's iconic raincoat. This feminine model has a fashion forward silhouette, with a spacious cut. It is handmade in rubberized cotton, comes unlined and with welded seams. 

The Skeppsbron Coat is the Stutterheim take on the classic peacoat. Handmade in the iconic rubberized cotton, this double breasted coat comes unlined and with dark metal snap closures. 

The Arvid Coat is constructed with fabric from Limonta – the world's finest cotton fabric producer, founded in 1893. For the Arvid coat, it provides the finest stormproof, protected blue cotton. Limonta's process begins by hand-dying the yarn, then it dries fully and is woven into the fabric, before being treated between its layers with a stormproof protection.
