The joint campaign of the two companies headquartered in Balgach (CH) should sharpen the knowledge of Swiss quality with consumers
As successful niche players of the Swiss textile industry, the two companies Metzler Switzerland and Rohner socks are launching the joint campaign with the gift box with shirt and matching socks. The gift boxes are available in three choices: White shirt with blue and black socks; black shirt with yellow and black socks, and blue shirt with grey and black socks. All available in trade retail shops as of mid-November. The noble gift boxes represent a Christmas gift of high value and in style. The shirts are of non-iron quality and offer high wear and cleaning comfort. Subtle accents and in colours matching the socks make the product a unique specimen. With the sourced raw materials from Swiss and European manufacturers, and the production of the end product Metzler Switzerland is underlining the quality aspects. The socks are of merino wool and knitted with special conic tube to avoid cut-ins and rolling (slips). Heels and ball sector are reinforced, and thus resistant to hard use. Also the bound off sock tip eliminates the formation of bruising. Jakob Rohner AG is sourcing the yarn from Germany and the production takes place in Portugal.
As we recall, the Swiss textile industry is pressed to stay competitive. With this joint Christmas campaign the two companies aim to remember the knowledge of consumers in view to Swiss quality products, states Heidi Masteroberardino-Metzler, managing the family enterprise Metzler in the third generation.

With newly invented circular knit machines the company produced high quality hosiery and socks. The yarns derived from Swiss spinners at that time. Soon the brand Rohner Socks was the synonym for highest quality and comfort. Today the company honours its past with continuous innovations, each work phase and each idea is continuously evaluated to fulfil the aim of highest wearing comfort, highest quality and best fit. Rohner socks are companions in day-to-day activities, on traveling and expeditions.
