Belvedere is an innovative Austrian shirt and blouse brand and is part of Arido, a traditional Austrian company.

Since Arido was founded, customers always have trusted our fashion expertise, our high quality awareness, the good service and flexibility, as well as our international design approach compared with our production made in Europe.

The Arido company originally emerged from the wholesale operations of J.M. Fussenegger Textilwerke, when the wholesale company Heinz Ginzel & Co. was founded in 1942, in the middle of World War II, which already had 100 employees after a few years and started producing men’s shirts, blouses and women’s underwear in Vienna’s Mariahilferstrasse.

The huge pent-up demand after the war made it necessary to expand and relocate the production facilities. A suitable factory building was acquired in Wiener Neustadt.

Since 1998 the company operates under the name of ARIDO apparel GmbH & Co KG. In November 1999 the Belvedere brand was taken over.

In 2002 the operative business was outsourced and the company Arido Hemden Manufaktur GmbH was founded.
