|Rascher of Germany|
Creating outstanding men's coats and hunting apparel for over 100 years
The founder, Christoph Rascher, born 1885, graduated on his examination for the grade of master tailor on September 20, 1909. He established his own tailoring business on April 15, 1910 by entry in the handcrafts register.
His first workshop was in the back of his parents´ yard in St. Vit. In 1913-14, he built a house with workshop in the local center of St. Vit. By the end of World War I, Rascher employed 6-8 associates.
By the end of the 1930's, he had started the production of Loden jackets, with production being interrupted during World War II. After the war ended, production started up again and towards the end of the 1940's it had grown into a small hunting collection.
The family enterprise of Rascher men's clothing continued to grow as Christoph Rascher received additional support from his son Wilhelm and his daughter Helene Vollenkemper. By 1957, the first factory building was established.
The grandson of the founder, Christoph, joined the company in 1977. In 1984, the label “Duck Valley” was added to the already successful running label “Rascher”. The business had been managed by Christoph since 1989. Today the company employs 27 employees and supplies the German market, Europe, Eastern Europe, and the USA.
