Tradition meets technical expertise
Textilwerk St. Micheln is successfully continuing more than one hundred years of textile manufacturing tradition in Mülsen St. Micheln, Germany.
1896 – Establishment of a weaving mill
Councillor of Commerce and industrialist Otto Boessneck built what is now our factory and founded what is, given the conditions at the time, a large-scale weaving mill. At that time, it was exemplary, both in view of efficient ways of working and in the creation of social welfare schemes for the workers.
1930 – The weaving mill
Only woven fabrics were produced in the years that followed.
1974 – From weaving to knitting
Knitting techniques were used in the business from this time.
1992 – Re-establishment
All of the weaving machines were sold one year after the re-establishment.
Based on our many years of experience in textiles and over one hundred years of tradition, we have kept on investing in the latest knitting technology since our re-establishment. This means that we can now offer all technically possible processes in the sphere of warp knitting.
