framsohn frottier – A Touch of Nature

Certified with the European Eco-Label, ÖkoTex 100 and GOTS

In the densely forested north of Austria, textile production has been a tradition for centuries.
Since 1908 the Austrian company framsohn frottier produces high-quality terry products in the picturesque Woodquarter Region in the North of Austria – the “Waldviertel” region.

Today’s company´s name framsohn frottier is named after the founder FRanz AMstetter & SOHN, which means Franz “the father” and his “son”.
Company founder Franz Amstetter is still known by framsohn connoiseurs.

As a family run business, framsohn frottier places particular emphasis on the connection between nature and people. Nowadays this is called sustainability. We, have always called it a sense of responsibility.

Having the production locally in Heidenreichstein, gives framsohn the advantage that the CO2 emissions are reduced by short transport routes.

A continuous quality control from the beginning to the end is possible and ecological parameters are influenced.

 

NATURAL RESOURCES

The particular soft water in Heidenreichstein helps us to weave incompably soft towels and dye them in an especially gentle manner.

The high quality of the water from the own spring enables an especially soft processing of the towels.

Being able to grow up and to be part of such a long tradition is something I highly honour. I am particularly pround, despite all these years, that our entire production takes place under one roof, just as in the beginning.

It is very important to us to produce our products in a natural way of softening. The foundation for this is the uniquely soft water in Heidenreichstein.

At framsohn, it is a living corporate philosophy to produce sustainably terry products in which economy, production optimization and environmental protection are not mutually exclusive but mutually supportive.

Over more than 100 years, the traditional Woodquarter Region based company framsohn frottier has developed into one of the most innovative and successful manufacturers of terry towels in Europe, where profitability, production optimization and environmental protection are not mutually exclusive but mutually supportive.

Ever since, the finest yarns made from natural materials have been processed and have its final touch exclusively in Heidenreichstein. The particularly soft water helps to weave incomparably soft towels and colour them in a gentle manner.

Hardly any chemicals are added to the water during processing at the factory and in all production steps.
This is not only gentle on the environment and the natural circulation of the water but also on the fibers of framsohn´s terry goods.
Contrary to it, fibers treated with chemicals break or fluff and do not last long.

framsohn frottier positions itself as a premium quality producer, is open to new technologies and has a special taste when it comes to colours and trends.

Through the use of special fibers, weaving techniques and equipment, the products of framsohn frottier are produced in a high quality.

The Quattro collection uses MicroModal® from Lenzing. These fibers are made of CO2 neutral beech wood tree fibers and are naturally and permanently soft.
