Once upon a time in 1920’s Luxembourg, Joseph Galler and his brother began a business in the heart of the capital city: “H. Galler – Bonneterie en Gros,” or “H. Galler Wholesale Handknitting Yarns.”
The boys, only in their late teens, had to use their father’s name, H. Galler, as they were too young to assume the business title. With hard work and determination, the brothers maintained a successful shop for almost 2 decades until the German invasion of Luxembourg in 1940 shut them down.
During WWII, Joseph and his family moved to New York and created Joseph Galler Inc (incorporated 1952).
The business was one of the only ones of its kind back then, and had a huge showroom in the city until Joseph's death, April 3, 1993.
Today Joseph's granddaughter, Star, runs the business which is focussed on humanely cultivated, exquisite fibres that will last generations.
