AWS specialises in outdoor and knitwear pieces that reflects their strong identity. Bold graphics, an undeniable sense for functionality and a mastery of proportions and volumes characterise the Swiss label, who won the Design Prize Switzerland 2019.
All AWS knitwear is produced by Textil AG Huttwil, one of the last remaining Swiss knitting producers. The pieces resulting from this creative partnership shape the signature looks of AWS, contribute towards the preservation of traditional crafts and stand for social sustainability.
Since 2016 AWS is also producing (outerwear, other apparel) at the medium-sized family business SLOWFASHIONFAST nearby Banja Luca, Bosnia and Herzegovina.
AWS was founded in 2016 by fashion designer Karin Wüthrich and graphic designer Matthias Fürst.
