Since 2010 we’ve been proudly providing protective outerwear to people around the world, however we’re painfully aware that many people lack the necessary clothing to protect themselves in cold, wet weather.
You can help us fight this. From December 1st - 24th, for every order you place on stutterheim.com we will pay for warm clothing for three refugee children through the UN Refugee Agency UNHCR.
During this season of giving, you can help us to make a difference, and make your shopping experience that little bit more rewarding. To encourage you to join in, we’re handpicking a different Stutterheim design each day which will receive an exclusive 24hr discount. Join us as we reveal a new offer every day on our countdown to Christmas, and share some in-depth stories behind our most popular designs.
So treat yourself or a loved one, knowing that you’re also helping others.
The Arholma Story
Based on our founder Alexander Stutterheim’s grandfather’s raincoat worn in the 1960’s, the Arholma coat bares a special meaning. Alexander was going through his grandfather’s belongings shortly after he passed away and uncovered an old fisherman’s raincoat.
Alexander's grandfather lived his last years on the small island of Arholma in the Stockholm archipelago. He was a headstrong man, constantly swaying between creative and melancholic states of mind, not unlike his nearest neighbour, the ocean.
Alexander brought the coat with him when he returned to the city. There, on the kitchen floor of his old apartment, Alexander created the pattern for the first ever Stutterheim coat as a homage to his grandfather. An updated version of this classic piece of outerwear, better suited to the needs of its modern wearer. It was from this very same apartment that the first 200 Stutterheim raincoats were sold.
Using the finest craftsmanship, materials and details, the Arholma is a state-of-the-art piece of rainwear. It is hand sewn at our factory in Poland by one of our skilled seamstresses – made in rubberized cotton with an exclusive lining in cotton/polyester. The hand-stitched seams are, of course, taped underneath in order to stay totally dry.
