Curt Bauer Germany - long life basics


Textiles are our passion



The medium-sized family owned company has been producing for more than 130 years, now in the 4th generation, at the same location in Aue in the ore mountains (Erzgebirge) in Germany. Many different textile product lines are manufactured with the latest Jacquard weaving machines and electronically controlled finishing facilities.


Product lines are diversified: house textiles (bed- and table linen), damasks for apparel in Africa, contract textiles for laundries, hotels and restaurants, textiles for airlines as well as technical textiles are produced and distributed.


Goods are distributed through several channels according to different product groups. House textiles are distributed through high-end department stores (partly through shop-in-shop systems, as in e.g. KADEWE in Berlin), through furniture shops, high-end mail-order companies as well as retail stores.

For further processed product groups, distribution is organized through wholesalers or cooperation partners.


More than 60% of the goods are exported. Main export areas are West-African states, European countries as well as the Asian region. Sales overseas is organized through business trips, agents and own offices, e.g. in Shanghai.


Quality is essential to success. For more than a decade the company defends the quality management system according to DIN ISO 9001 of TÜV Rheinland. Further the German environment-friendly certificate for textiles „Öko-Tex-Standard 100“ is also maintained.


Vocational training plays a major role. The next generation of employees is raised mainly through trainees in the company.
