When he founds his company in 1937, Johann Rittersberger, great grandfather of today’s Göttmann caps and hats managing director, lays the foundations for decades of expertise.
In 1957, Johann Rittersberger’s son-in-law Karl Göttmann founds the Göttmann company in Bensheim an der Bergstrasse. It quickly develops into one of the leading specialists for headwear.
In the 70, under the management of Hans-Peter Göttmann, fashion becomes the consistent focus of the high-quality collection.
In 2001, Michael Göttmann assumes the management of the family company which today is among the leading labels worldwide.
Today, Gottmann continues their passion for design with their classic yet trendy styles. By using premium natural fibres and high tech materials, including cotton and water repellent GORE-TEX® , the focus stays on providing quality product that looks and feels great.
