Production location Germany: MADE IN GERMANY par excellence

6 textile manufacturers that produce 100% in Germany

23. May 2022

It really still exists: the German local textile industry. The manufacturers who produce 100% in Germany. We present six of our exhibitors of the upcoming MUNICH FABRIC START and BLUEZONE, who embody MADE IN GERMANY down to the smallest detail.

Onshoring – Nearshoring – Off-/Farshoring?

The answer to this question depends of course on the location of the sourcing partner company. If both your fashion brand and your production partner are based in Germany, this stands for Onshoring par excellence. Because Onshoring describes the choice of a domestic production partner. Short value chains, short distances. While Nearshoring stands for relocation to nearby countries and Offshoring describes outsourcing to more distant areas, mostly outside of Europe.

Let’s look at these six exhibitors from German textile production: Dresdner Spitzen, Frohn HighTex Group, Handel & Diller, Kindermann, Maibom and Mehler Tuchfabrik.


DRESDNER SPITZEN

DRESDNER SPITZEN has stood for quality and elegance from Saxony since 1884.

As a traditional family business with an innovative spirit, the German company develops sophisticated and sustainable lace and lace fabrics, as well as functional knitwear. At the fully integrated production site in Dresden, all production steps are combined under one roof, from design to raw material production, dyeing, finishing and finishing.

With a well-trained team, DRESDNER SPITZEN guarantees the highest quality in all areas. With the Standard 100 by OEKO TEX® and STeP by OEKO TEX® certificates, the top expert proves the long-term implementation of human-ecological product requirements, sustainable and ecological processes and compliance with social working conditions.

————————————————————————–

FROHN HighTex Group

FROHN HighTex Group produces fashionable and innovative textiles exclusively at the company’s location in Northern Bavaria, one of the most well-known German textile regions. The third-generation owner-managed company has a network of regional partner companies with first-class trained textile specialists.

Sustainability and resource reduction have been anchored in the corporate philosophy of the FROHN HighTex Group for much longer than this became a core topic of corporate strategies in general. FROHN is well positioned for the future and the fourth generation is in the starting blocks to continue the company with foresight, flexibility and a focus on innovative, functional textiles.

“Our aim is to be one of the best in our industry and we can only do this through our network and a qualitatively optimal supply chain with short distances to partner companies located around our northern Bavarian production site.”

— Wolfgang Frohn, General Manager

————————————————————————–

HÄNDEL & DILLER

QUALITY BEFORE QUANTITY

As a family-run company, Händel & Diller produces on the most modern large circular knitting machines at its own location in Balingen-Frommern on the Swabian Alb.

Subject to ecological and social responsibility, fabrics are created here for manufacturers of underwear, home and sportswear or for technical applications. The foundations of success are innovative and creative products, a pronounced customer orientation, good team spirit and a quality awareness that exists across all departments.

“We remain loyal to the southern German production site because local production corresponds to our social understanding and our ecological responsibility. With the know-how of our employees, the existing infrastructure offers quality advantages, the possibility of economical production and the supply of our customers with the highest possible process reliability. We want to guarantee our customers reliable supplies even in times of more complex supply chains.”

— Helmut Diller, General Manager

————————————————————————–

KINDERMANN

The Kindermann company, founded in 1885, is one of the last companies in Europe to refine corduroy fabrics at the Leutersdorf production site, making them stable and stretchable lengthwise and crosswise. Knitwear, technical fabrics and traditional workwear fabrics are also finished. Since 2007, one of the most modern processing locations in Germany has been built here and continuously developed.

The woven and knitted fabrics are sourced from sister company Cord & Velveton, also in Leutersdorf.

Kindermann has also been selling fabrics made from certified organic cotton for over 30 years. The company has also been certified according to the GOTS standard for several years.

With on-site production, Kindermann ensures fast and flexible deliveries and short supply chains.

“If we are faster, better and more reliable than the competition, then Germany is definitely justified as a location.”

————————————————————————–

MAIBOM

Innovation, ability to deliver, quality and sustainability are the four pillars of the Maibom family business. The daily work is based on these pillars, as is the company’s future direction. The Maibom weaving mill refines cotton outer fabrics in blends for trousers at its Germany location, since cotton outer fabrics can be finished here under the highest quality and most sustainable conditions. Over the last few years, the company has positioned itself much more flexibly and can therefore compensate for seasonal fluctuations more easily.

Digital printing makes it possible to produce “on demand” flexibly and at short notice according to Eco Design standards and to react to certain market trends. Furthermore, the capsule “Made in Germany – woven and finished in Germany” sets new standards – a mixture of organic cotton from Turkey and Tencel is used.

 

“Only the finishing gives the fabric its special character.”

— Fabian Maibom, Management

 

————————————————————————–

Tuchfabrik Gebrüder MEHLER

As the oldest textile factory in Germany, Gebrüder MEHLER has been focusing on quality since 1644. The family business is now being run by the 11th generation.

From the fiber to the finished fabric and all with a great deal of passion and dedication.

The yarn for loden / cloth is produced in the spinning mill in Forst (Brandenburg) and the fabric is woven and finished in Tirschenreuth (Bavaria).

The clothing and interior fabrics made of pure wool are individual, customer-oriented and certified according to OEKO-TEX, GOTS and IVN.

EVERY.BODY Spring.Summer 23 #3 - BAROQUE.POP

BAROQUE.POP

the maximalist mood of this trend theme needs expressive fabrics

17. May 2022

We are happy to present you the Spring.Summer 23 trend themes included in our MUNICH FABRIC START Trend Book. We hope the themes will give you the impression of what the next season will bring and that they will inspire you and spark new ideas for your future collections’ development.

BAROQUE.POP is the third trend theme included in our Spring.Summer 23 Trend Books. The maximalist mood of BAROQUE.POP needs expressive fabrics with extraordinary surfaces and rich decorations to shine. Without a doubt, this theme is best shown in unique surfaces – technical materials like sporty mesh fabrics or highly elastic stretch are at its core. Full of juxtapositions, BAROQUE.POP is responsible for releasing unlimited amounts of expressive energy.

Bold colours and otherworldly reflections – real and virtual – lure us onto the festival playground in this extroverted theme…

TURN UP THE VOLUME !

BAROQUE.POP is pretty much about celebration. The desire to celebrate concludes with expressively beaming colours – heavily influenced by the sportswear aesthetics. The motto of strong colour combinations is: Don’t be afraid of contrasts! Make statements! In juxtaposition, primary colours multiply their power. When used as solid tones – they reveal the spirit of expressive energy. Metallic coatings and the use of intensive gloss effects is definitely a move towards the virtual future…

Inspired by fantasy creatures of the techno era and gaming, patterns pop up as hip graphics.
3-D effects, sometimes visual, sometimes haptic additionally activate prints and patterns…

MORE IS MORE.

The details of BAROQUE.POP follow a simple formula – MORE IS MORE. From futuristic trimmings, accessories, prints or through styling itself. Prints and colours are courageously and playfully layered. The playful aspect of this trend theme is shown in an almost childlike joy of combining such different elements together. Overcoming the conventional idea of beauty is the stylistic goal of the BAROQUE.POP trend theme. Combining crew socks in pool slides with bucket hats over hoods are the beginning of new aesthetics.

Fabrics glitter, sparkle and shine but always with the reassurance that sequins and coatings are sustainable. Even at the peak of exhilaration, BAROQUE.POP remains focused on sustainability, new technologies and provocative designs.

EVERY.BODY Spring.Summer 23 #2 - Souvenir d´un Moment

SOUVENIR D’UN MOMENT

- the joy of carefree happiness and the little things in life -

11. May 2022

We are happy to present you the Spring.Summer 23 trend themes included in our MUNICH FABRIC START Trend Book. We hope the themes will give you the impression of what the next season will bring and that they will inspire you and spark new ideas for your future collections’ development.

SOUVENIR D’UN MOMENT is our second theme that is all about the search for happiness, joy and all the little things in life. This theme loves loose and relaxed, silky materials with hand-printed or regular prints and motifs. It definitely brings back this ‘Brigitte Bardot’ holiday vibe with a playful twist.

Even though, the moments of relaxation and joy are of highest importance within the SOUVENIR D’UN MOMENT theme, the sensuality, romance and a little bit of sex appeal are also crucial here. Shorts, midriff revealing tops and subtle cut-outs are the elements that represent the carefree aspect of SOUVENIR D’UN MOMENT. The overall feeling is that those colourful and intriguing textiles and cuts put you in a good mood and spread pure joie de vivre!

Playful details allow this theme to breathe with smiling ease

What colours stand out the most? Just imagine a poetic watercolour painting – calming blues, violets and yellow tones are paired with cool neutrals like matte greens and khaki. Off-whites and light-greys highlight the palette with perfect high-summer shades.

 

For more inspiration, order your own colour code that includes coloured yarns:

How to mix playfulness with sophistication? It is all about the details… Contemporary illustrations are reflecting the mixture of those two currents by telling humorous and complicated stories in an approachable way – for example by using delicate lines.

EVERY.BODY Spring.Summer 23 #1 – Augmented Essentials

Augmented Essentials

The need for mindful products

2. May 2022

After a long period of disruption and restriction, we enter the trend themes of MUNICH FABRIC START for Spring.Summer 23 with a new feeling – in fact, a new definition – of individuality and community. We are looking towards a time that will redefine our perception on many levels. We are longing for a post-pandemic world where everything is “back to normal”, and at the same time, we realise this magic moment of resolution and healing will not suddenly arise. Instead, we are experiencing a process of redefining meaningfulness, happiness, sustainability and participation.

In search of optimism, a new balance and an individual self-image, we rediscover ourselves and others with an improved worldliness and tolerance. We feel a new kind of empathy and connection to the grand human and climatic issues. Fashion that is guided by social activism and that creates products with a purpose pushes us towards truemorrow – towards a more fulfilling future. We take a new course with our lives with the goal of doing more good.

The upcoming blog articles will feature 4 trends of EVERY.BODY Spring.Summer 23. This first blog article is about Augmented Essentials and the need for mindful products. Find out what this trend is about:

Progressive, sustainable, and reduced to the max – in Augmented Essentials, the hidden benefits of fashion count more than ever before. Rediscovered natural materials and revolutionary features satisfy the hunger for mindful products.

Knowledge and information become crucial here. Disguised within the smart, minimalist designs, they appear on the label – listed as the most important material and as critical knowledge.

In the process of achieving a fully holistic lifestyle, research and science provide the correct answers. Thus, clever e-bikes are becoming a global choice, and biodegradable plastics are the key to truly ecological, circular products.

At the same time, customers are adapting more mindful consumption patterns and tend to prefer products that support non-profit organisations. Mindful products are therefore becoming increasingly important.

Sustainable Innovations #6: Wearable muscles by MotorSkins

MotorSkins' shape-changing soft-robotic textiles

SUSTAINABLE INNOVATIONS Spring.Summer 23 #6

30. April 2022

Innovative, intelligent, interactive: MotorSkins is a pioneering start-up in the field of shape-changing soft-robotic textiles. The Berlin-based company produces garments that help muscles move without any electronics such as batteries or motors – making them a pioneer in the industry. The first item produced is a compression garment for the legs.

The special feature: the textiles are being stimulated by the movement of the users thanks to the new design and the innovative material. This creates a cycle: when the foot of the user compresses one part of the circuit against the floor (during a step), the pressure and volume are transferred to the active part, which powers it.

As an interface between sport, wellness and health, the start-up creates products that can be used medically, for relaxation or to support movement, depending on requirements. Currently, the young, international team at MotorSkins is working on textiles that are attached to the joints to make running easier – either for normal movements or also for illnesses. Inspired by nature, made for people.

“MotorSkins technology bridges the functionality of soft-robotics with the versatility of textiles. We are a development platform for applications that explore human-machine interaction. Our technology creates a new paradigm of innovation in materials and sustainability where smart active elements are made without integrating electronics or batteries.”

– Juan Opitz-Silva

Sustainable Innovations #5: The Healing Imprint

The Healing Imprint by Laura Deschl

SUSTAINABLE INNOVATIONS Spring.Summer 23 #5

22. April 2022

Emotional healing through clothing – where science and textiles come together: The Healing Imprint explores the therapeutic potential of knitted garments. Bodysuits, gloves, socks and pillowcases are made to stimulate acupressure points on different parts of the body such as the hands, feet and head when moved. The custom-made textiles have grids through which small massage balls can be moved. By this, the acupressure points can be targeted.

Laura Deschl is not only the designer of these special textiles, but also has a background as a yoga teacher – she used her knowledge to develop a yoga-based movement practice that uses one’s own body weight to increase pressure on certain points of the body. According to Deschl, trauma can also be worked through with this method. In combination with a trauma-sensitive yoga practice, the clothing thus becomes an individual tool that can release and dissolve even deeper emotions. The Healing Imprint shows how the fields of science, economics, medicine, psychology and textile production can be harmonised in an interdisciplinary way.

Healing Imprint
Healing Imprint

Allowing and feeling emotions: Mental illness and trauma are often still a rather invisible topic in society. One of Laura Deschl’s major concerns is therefore to draw attention to issues surrounding mental health and the traces of trauma on the body and to destigmatise them. Deschl wants to help patients train their body awareness and in this way bring them closer to their body again.

“With The Healing Imprint garments, the acupressure aims to help the wearer access buried memories or emotions, while the trauma-sensitive yoga practice facilitates introspection around those recollections. Considering that our society has an intense history of war, severe traumatisation and high exposure to everyday postwar stressors were common. These memories can get stored in the body’s memory and even be passed on over generations. Emotional wellbeing and healing is thus another angle to look at sustainability. A balanced body and mind are more likely enabling to make decisions that are in alignment with other humans and the planet.”

– Laura Deschl

Sustainable Innovations #4: "Sunkolor" by Panorama Fabrics

"Sunkolor" by Panorama Fabrics - The Textile UV Indicator

SUSTAINABLE INNOVATIONS Spring.Summer 23 #4

12. April 2022

With climate change still gathering momentum, the intensity of the sun’s invisible UV rays is also increasing. The problem: the intensity is not visible to the eye. The result: sunburn and damage to our skin that sometimes only appears years later which makes it all the more important to protect our important organ.

Exactly this is possible with Sunkolor. The material helps to visually perceive sun exposure and to establish a healthy relationship with it as a result. The technology Panorama Fabrics, the material driven Design Studio from Berlin, manages to make UV rays visible. For this purpose, Sunkolor yarns, which are produced in Germany, are woven into textiles.

When exposed to sunlight, the colour of the material changes thus indicating the dangerous UV index range. The change of colour makes it immediately clear once the situation becomes critical. In the first step, the yarns will be attached in labels to hiking backpacks. In the long term, a variety of different or outdoor garments will be made from this yarn.

The vision:

Create new tools to adapt in a changing environment caused by climate change.

Panorama Fabrics studio aims to contribute with its own products and pioneering designs to highlight the possible interaction between textiles, humans and our climate. Research is being carried out on innovations to make more people aware of the effects of climate change and at the same time support them in dealing with it. The two founders, Gabriela Kapfer and Karina Wirth, share a fascination for different materials and a passion for interdisciplinary collaboration, which enables them to create something new and progressive together.

“Sunkolor makes the invisible visible to create awareness.”

– Gabriela Kapfer & Karina Wirth
