MERZ B. SCHWANEN

MERZ B. SCHWANEN
Originally founded in 1911 it took the chance finding of an archive piece and some investigative work by owner Peter Plotnicki to resurect the Merz B. Schwanen company just three years after they had to close.
Using their original loopwheel machinery and only organic materials they have authentically recreated cotton garments from various decades. All of their items are manufactured only to order due to the length of time the looms take to create the fabric. The looms work at a very slow speed compared to the modern machines and take the time and attention of a skilled craftsmen to keep them running perfectly. Luckily a few of the original workers are still in attendance so the fabric is always of the highest quality. Proudly manufactured exclusively in the Swabian Alps in Germany just as it has always been.
We are very happy to have Merz B. Schwanen in store and online having worn their goods for many years already.
