Principles & values

We live for textiles with passion and with reason. Find out what we stand for and what makes us special.


Home is where the heart is

We have been attached to our roots since 1901 and are one of the last spinning mills in Germany. We are proud of that and nothing will ever change that.


Freedom means independence

The company has been run by the Otto family for four generations. With entrepreneurial foresight and a sense of duty we pursue our goals and grow independently.


Unlike any other

Just being good has never been enough for us. When it comes to developing sustainable yarns we are the pioneers. We are different from everyone else and able to realize textile visions.


Team players

We always meet you at eye level with the respect and fairness that we also expect from our partners. They form the foundation for long-term, successful partnerships in which you can keep learning from each other.


Open doors

We know the exact path of the textile supply chain: from the raw material to the finished yarn. You can experience the art of spinning with all your senses on site.


Deliberately better

We ensure an ecologically responsible production. Our own hydropower plants are extra special, they have supplied our company with green electricity right from the start.



We source our raw materials exclusively from safe countries where fair trade is guaranteed and child labor is excluded. We also attach great importance to short transport routes and sustainable fiber production.


For the people

Success is not a solo performance, so we are happy to give it back. To our employees, our partners, our community and our region.
