About us

Fabrics for feel-good worlds

We develop high-quality contract fabrics for feel-good environments with aesthetics and function. Our flame-retardant blackout fabrics and curtains, as well as decorative and upholstery fabrics, give hotels, restaurants, care homes, cinemas, offices and schools an appropriate atmosphere. In addition to high quality and aesthetic appeal, our fabrics are characterized by their high functionality. They can darken, improve room acoustics, reduce bacteria, save energy and serve as glare protection. Our upholstery fabrics are easy to clean, antibacterial and impermeable to moisture. We have been based in Bielefeld since 1722 and can now look back on 300 years of company history.

Our mission

We want our textiles to last - out of respect for nature, health and the value of work. Our quality standards therefore relate to the ecology of our products, sustainability and innovation. We want you to feel comfortable with our textiles; even tomorrow.

"In our creative department, we are constantly developing new products with the highest standards of design, quality, innovation, functionality and sustainability in order to optimally fulfil the needs of our customers."

Lisa Kissel, Head of Design

Why polyester FR?

Object fabrics are manufactured for use in public buildings. And one thing is paramount here: safety.

Hotels and cruise ships should offer a safe home away from home, cinemas and theaters should be a place of relaxation and enjoyment and our children should be able to play and learn safely in schools and kindergartens.

So far, only fabrics made from polyester FR and Trevira CS offer this level of safety. Here, the flame retardancy is firmly anchored in the fiber and remains permanent even after repeated washing.

Tested quality

Our textiles are permanently flame-retardant and meet the high requirements for fabrics in public buildings. The focus is on their technical properties. For example, we have their durability, light and wash fastness or resistance to disinfectants tested in independent and accredited test laboratories and confirmed by certificates. DELIUS textiles are also harmless to health and legally compliant. Regular monitoring guarantees our consistent quality.

"Our product tests are based on scientifically sound parameters and are continuously adapted to the current state of legislation."

Angelika Schmidt-Koch, Quality Manager

Our responsibility

Through prudent corporate management and long-term planning, we take responsibility for our employees and products and place them at the center of our actions. We are networked with other companies that also take responsibility for society and are committed to sustainable action. And we are not standing still, but are constantly working to become even better.

More about sustainability

"For us, sustainable behaviour means using natural resources carefully, taking responsibility for people and ensuring the economic success of the company."
