About us

We have been writing our success story at RABE since 1920 when Albert Rabe founded Rabe Strickwaren GmbH in St Egidien. A lot has changed since then. We are now there for our customers in over 249 shop-in-shops, 227 soft shops and 9 stores in more than 38 countries. One thing has remained the same: RABE Fashion Group is still a family company that is managed from the headquarters in Hilter in the Teutoburg Forest.

 

Quality

Creating high-quality knitwear that all women would feel good in - that was Albert Rabe’s vision. His vision became our guiding principle. Soft, flattering and exclusive: Knitwear by Rabe impressed then as it does now with its outstanding quality, which is regularly tested and awarded prizes by the renowned Hohenstein Institute.

 

My Favourite Jumper®

Get dressed and feel good! The specific cotton blend and special knitting technique results in quality and a feeling beyond compare when wearing it. Natural, cuddly and soft - simply an absolute “Lieblings-Pullover®”!

Unique!®

Comfortable to wear, breathable and kind to skin! “Einzigartig!®” offers you high-quality knitting and a feel-good factor. The fine, smooth and crease-resistant fibre made from a soft modal blend is extremely soft and cuddly - a unique, lightweight wearing experience that is akin to cashmere.

Softcare®

The finely knitted quality guarantees a pure, feel-good experience. The extremely soft viscose blend is not only comfortable to wear, but is also markedly simple to look after. Women with sensitive skin need not worry as the Hohenstein Institute has deemed it to be “allergy-tested” and “skin-friendly”.
