Why we chose Chemnitz as a location?

Connecting tradition and future – craft meets upcycling

The German location of Chemnitz (Saxony) and its surrounding region are characterized by a traditional textile history.

As a registered factory and trading town, Chemnitz was called the “Saxon Manchester” during the 19th century and was one of the most important industrial cities in Germany.

Cotton weaving and printing factories were already the most important pillars in the 18th century. And the textiles were traded worldwide. Chemnitz then achieved a new quality with spinning mills based on the English model, which were the first factories in Saxony to establish themselves.

This long tradition of textile development, production and processing continues to this day. An estimated 14,000 people work here in around 250 textile companies.

Well-known international companies have their fabrics woven here or their clothing designed and processed here. It is therefore not surprising that high-ranking research and development institutions in the textile sector founded their headquarters here. Such as “Fraunhofer Research Center Systems and Technologies for Textile Structures” (STEX), “Sächsisches Textilforschungsinstitut e. V.” (STFI) and “Cetex Chemnitzer Textilmaschinenentwicklung gGmbH”.

We would like to build on these renowned traditions and quality and with THE COFFEE JACKET ® also benefit from the existing know-how in the region in southeast Germany and pass it on to you.
