Weba Weberei named 'Oeko-Tex Company of the Month'

Feb '14
Weba Weberei Appenzell AG is one of the most modern weaving mills in the whole of Europe and thanks to its creativity, flexibility, efficiency and continuous customer focussed approach, has successfully fought off strong international competition. The Swiss specialist in exclusive and innovative fabrics for shirts and blouses has developed an outstanding reputation throughout the world due to its clear positioning as a quality supplier. 
 
In addition, weba Weberei Appenzell AG is the first weaving mill in the world to be analysed and certified for Sustainable Textile Production in accordance with the criteria of the new STeP by OEKO-TEX certification. The company thus highlights once again its role as a world-leader in the field of more environmentally friendly, socially responsible and sustainable production.
 
weba Weberei Appenzell AG was founded back in 1944. At this time, the company specialised in the production of high-quality handkerchiefs. Today weba concentrates on the production of exclusive and innovative shirt and blouse materials for renowned manufacturers of ready-made clothing around the world. 
 
The company currently employs 75 staff and is thus one of the most important employers in the region. Kurt Ebneter, CEO, explains how strongly the concept of quality is embedded in the company: "weba's success is primarily due to the first-class quality of our products. Top quality products can only be permanently guaranteed with the best materials and the latest production methods. 
 
At weba, this is the established practise day in, day out." As a result of the close and long-term cooperation with partner companies, both at the upstream (spinning mills) and the downstream (textile finisher) value creation levels, weba Weberei Appenzell AG regularly manages to bring pioneering innovations to the market. Kurt Ebneter sees these new developments as decisive for the long-term success of the company: 
 
"It is our objective to regularly move the sector with our innovations. As the consumers want long-lasting products with maximum wear and care convenience, we can score points by working with our partners to develop first-class products with additional functional value." The latest achievements relate to "Dynamic Cotton", a pure cotton fabric with a crossway elasticity of 15 – 20% created using weaving technology, "Ice Cotton", a fabric with cooling and refreshing characteristics without the use of chemicals and "Wrinkle free", a non-iron fabric that also smooths itself when being worn.
