Sustainability is especially application-oriented and it is important to achieve a real impact in practice. That is exactly what we achieved in numerous projects together with the Otto. In addition, the internships, bachelor's or master's theses and project courses give the students a close impression of the practice."


Technical textiles - Textiles visions made real!

We are often asked how it is possible to be successful as a cotton spinning mill in Germany. One of our secrets is called innovation.



„Pertaining to a system that maintains its own viability by using techniques that allow for continual reuse.“ This is how defines the word "sustainable". We see this as the cornerstone for longevity and stability.

Word of the executive board

Textiles can do a lot - there is great potential in yarns to create something new. As true unconventional thinkers and market experts we have always understood this. No matter what your textile goal is - we make it ours. We are here for you personally and are close to you - our home is and remains Germany.

Listening, understanding, implementing: We rely on honest cooperation that gives space for authentic communication. With flat hierarchies we quickly create real added value. And all of this is done with a clear head, because for us success also means taking responsibility in order to make a difference.
