As a leading trim manufacturer since 1882 we have a long history of striving for excellence. Nowadays we are a well known supplier to international wholesalers,  renowned furniture manufacturers, manufacturers of cushions, decorative textiles and outdoor furniture makers.

We span an immensely wide range of production techniques, such as twisting, braiding, weaving, embroidery and crocheting and have continually invested in the latest up to date machinery and an extensive yarn stock to broaden our possibilities and ensure constant, reliable quality.

Today, we are able to deliver specially tailored products, like cords, cut-, tassel- or bullion fringes, braids, woven and embroidered tapes with a minimum of only 100 – 200 m, yet as a sizable, modern company, we are also happy to produce large volumes in time, even with short notice.

At our location in Germany we produce all components under the stringest of rules, understanding that our customers expect the extra benefit from a product „Made in Germany“. All required manual assembly of our components is done by the skilled and through the years highly trained personnel at our site in Poland to ensure we can doubtlessly meet requested price points.

It has been our strategic focus to maintain and improve upon our definately unique and wide variety of production techniques. With more than 130 years of expertise and knowledge of producing and delivering tailor made solutions to the home textiles trade and upholstery manufacturers we welcome any design request and will gladly develop trimmings, decorative or upholstery cords, fringes of any kind, woven and embroidered tapes, braids, cords, tassels and tie-backs to your liking. 

Our intention is not solely to guard our rich heritage, but to also excel in the development of new products, product applications and current and future trends.

Product development is continuous, we welcome any challenge. With thousands of products in our archives it goes without saying we strive for more. Please feel free to contact us.

We will gladly submit product suggestions as well as pictures or send original samples or, at best, take the opportunity to visit your esteemed company and talk in person.
