Made-to-measure to make sure everything fits perfectly and leaves you radiant. This is what underlies our daily motivation and enthusiasm in maintaining our century-old tradition of bespoke tailoring at Runggaldier. Original costumes, dirndls, elegant classic fashions and traditional men’s fashions are well-suited to everyone, whether we tailor a top-quality item from the latest collections to you, design the perfect dirndl or wedding dress for you or make a traditional costume to measure. This beautiful work always fills us with enthusiasm and has the special charm of anticipation for when it all fits perfectly and leaves you elated.

Original South Tyrolean traditional costumes hold a special place in our hearts. All must be perfectly co-ordinated, from fabrics and materials that are true to the original to making bobbin lace, buttons, fabric printing and embroidery. We apply our full range of experience, talent and passion to the unique items produced by bespoke tailoring, because each detail is handcrafted on these splendid garments. Runggaldier is also a leading point of reference for costume associations in the Alpine region.

We are delighted to combine the traditional with the fashionable and modern, reinterpreting older couture with the use of modern materials. So do not be afraid to come to us with your favourite items: we know you are attached to them, and rightly so.

The traditional costume, dirndl or lederhosen are not throwaway items of clothing, but rather something that will accompany you a whole life long and often be passed down from generation to generation. That is why we at Runggaldier take every care in our bespoke tailoring.

This daily challenge is one we approach with passion: we will be pleased to advise you with style, skill and heart.


Traditional costumes are garments with a history! Runggaldier is one of the few businesses in South Tyrol that specialises in the field of making traditional costumes using original patterns from original materials, buttons, ribbons, embroidery and prints together with the appropriate accessories. The shop thus holds a valuable treasure in the form of innumerable authentic South Tyrolean traditional patterns, handed down over time, as well the ability to bring the very best out of this cherished attire.

Genuine South Tyrolean traditional costumes are a special passion of ours. There are many different versions, as in almost every valley the local people have their own traditional “Gwand” or costume. We at Runggaldier are thus particularly proud of our wide experience and skill in making traditional costumes according to the original pattern, including everything that is part of it. We procure fabrics and materials that are true to the original from a few selected specialist manufacturers. Bobbin lace is made for us by farmers’ wives in the Ahrntal Valley, while embroidery is sourced from experienced craftswomen in the area around Meran, the Passeier Valley and the Vinschgau Valley. The precious garments thus contain considerable experience, passion and hand-finishing, all making us into specialists for traditional folk costumes in South Tyrol.

Runggaldier is also home to a genuine treasure: our archives contain a valuable stock of rare, authentic South Tyrolean costumes from the years 1910-1940. These splendid historical items ensure the faithful production of genuine South Tyrolean traditional costumes, into which Runggaldier repeatedly breathes new life.

Associations for traditional costumes, music bands, folk dance groups, choirs and marksmen from across the Alpine region appreciate Runggaldier’s skill in making and adapting traditional, local and historic folk costumes for various organisations.

We will be pleased to help if your traditional costume association needs assistance with its particular outfit.
