Authenticity and tradition

  • • René is the third generation to manage the workshop
  • • Their work is deeply rooted in the region’s tradition
  • • Their signature product is the Altausseer Spencer

When Archduke Johann, brother of the Austrian Emperor Franz I, married the postmaster’s daughter Anna Plochl from the village of Bad Aussee, the region of Ausseerland-Salzkammergut came into the public eye. The couple lived a very humble and down-to-earth lifestyle in Styria, including wearing traditional rural costumes. To this day the region is the most authentic rural area of Austria, where wearing traditional clothes – known as G’wand – is widespread among locals as well as visitors. The Haselnus workshop references this heritage. It was founded by René’s grandfather in 1932, while his father Georg was the first and only bespoke tailor in Styria to be awarded the Styrian Crafts Award.
