Partners in innovation since 1965, Obermeyer and Schoeller have worked in lockstep to bring innovative outerwear to skiers for nearly 60 years.
Schoeller, the Swiss-based textile company, has a storied history. In 1868, Rudolph Schoeller moved to Zürich to establish Switzerland’s first worsted yarn spinning mill. Originally named "Schoeller & Söhne," the origin of today’s Schoeller Textil AG was based in Schaffhausen on the upper Rhine River. Fast forward more than 155 years and Schoeller is behind “highly-functional textiles and innovative textile technologies” for a number of applications.
With Obermeyer’s roots as one the US’s original ski brands, a partnership with an institutional European brand like Schoeller continues to produce innovative and exciting results. Obermeyer has relied on the partnership to produce high-performance products made from high-quality materials for decades.
Our renowned Katze Suit—a one-piece ski suit that blends fashion with technology—is made possible thanks to Schoeller’s 4-way stretch material. The flattering fit moves with the skiers, and the materials keep you dry. The end result: a beautiful ski suit made for a full day of skiing in the harshest climes (and an eye-catching apres session after the chairlifts stop spinning).
