LUHTA: STARTED BY FATHER AND MOTHER, TAKEN OVER BY THE SON
Everyone knew exactly what to do. Mrs Luhtanen designed, Mr Luhtanen sold. Based on this clear division of tasks, Vithori Luhtanen founded his own clothing company in 1907. And the fire grew. Even despite the material shortages during the Second World War. Even after the takeover by son Jaako. Years earlier, he had already had the idea of travelling from smaller Lahti to larger Helsinki to recruit new wholesalers, thus helping the family business take the next step on the expansion ladder. Evolution followed.
Luhta found his way to the sporting goods market via traditional clothing. Later, right in the middle of the ski fashion. The unmistakable designs of the Finnish brand left an impression - even further south. Luhta expanded, sending its premium articles to more and more Luhta dealers. From the far north, across the Alps, into the whole world. The brand has long felt at home there, but still remains at home in tranquil Lahti, where unique designs are created that combine optimal function with Nordic fashion sense.
LUHTA PRODUCTS: HIGH QUALITY PERFORMANCE FITTING
If there is a family business behind jackets, trousers and shirts, the demands on the individual products grow organically from within. Luhta articles are no exception. Quality and design merge, innovation promotes new material ideas and fashion experiments - without losing sight of tradition. Because Luhta always keeps this in focus. The Finnish brand sees its more than 100 years of experience as a big plus.
It allows it to develop ever new innovations on a secure foundation. Performance plays a decisive role in this. Luhta products should accompany you as long as possible on your trips to the Alps, protecting you from cold and moisture. At the same time you can make a stylish appearance. So you can easily take your jackets from the Luhta Sale to the bar in the evening. After all, Athleisure and the far north go together perfectly from different perspectives.
