Scarves are our passion.
The stuff we're made of: 140 years of company history, five generations, and one philosophy - to put all our knowledge, passed on from generation to generation, into every scarf. You can feel this passion. In every one of our scarves.
We wish you an enjoyable journey of discovery through our world.
Learn how we are knitted. Or: An instruction manual for this website.
~1~ Whether on the sofa or somewhere in the countryside - sit down and relax (maybe even lie down). Our website is just like our scarves - pleasant, pleasing, made for you. It is not intended to instruct, but to entertain. And to keep you happy!
~2~ You are sitting down now? OK, get back up again. Go get yourself something to drink, it makes reading even more fun. A Franconian Pinot Noir perhaps? Recommended by our managing directors since it’s a soothing wine that brings out the best notes from the rich soil of the environment.
~3~ If you get chilly while reading, you can of course throw on one of our scarves. We like to call this “immersing yourself in the matter”.
~4~ Here we go - Just click through as you like, and experience every fibre of our passion for scarves. We have put together many different stories for you, all with one thing in common, to show you why we have been producing scarves with love and dedication for 140 years.
"Ideas come all by themselves.
Best, when you're not even looking for them.
My creative kick? Whenever I smell paint or just see an artist’s easel,
it goes off in my head. It's funny, but it does."
"Many companies talk about sustainability, we live it.
Almost 70% of the yarns we process are produced and dyed here in the region.
Due to the short transport distances, we relieve the environment
and conserve natural resources."
"In a FRAAS scarf, there is a specific thread that runs through it. Not just the thread that we knit, rustle or weave. The red thread also runs through ecological and ethical aspects. Our environment is important to us, our employees are important to us, and of course our customers are important to us. So that we can put a piece of textile trust around our customers' necks that makes their outfit complete."
"Our trainees are our future, so that we can continue to supply our customers with top quality. Every year we hire apprentices who complete their training here at the textile technical school in Münchberg, the only one left in Germany, in block training.
"In the weaving mill, we use technology to give ideas
and work with the designers until the patterns are exactly
as we imagine them to be. Then we produce them."
