about us

The from Thannen GmbH is a company based in Vorarlberg, Austria.

The story of the "von der Thannen" begins almost 130 years ago in the Bregenzerwald. In 1892 Kaspar Ignaz von der Thannen founded an embroidery company with five long and one short embroidery machines. It became the most important boat sticker in the Bregenzerwald and remained so until the decline of this branch of industry.

The craft has a special status in the Bregenzerwald and was a welcome employer for the predominantly rural region. The so-called Stickferggers were responsible for the delivery of the goods and the collection and delivery at the exporter in Switzerland. Only the highest quality was accepted. The embroidery spread very quickly in Vorarlberg. The wage orders from Switzerland achieved a high economic value, especially for the mountain regions of the Bregenzerwald. Emperor Franz I confirmed the privilege of embroidery processing trade in 1818, and cotton fabrics and embroidery thread could be imported duty-free.

Like your ancestors, the company "von der Thannen GmbH" has set itself the task of presenting its customers with the highest quality in the form of bedding and accessories with self-created designs. Today, in 2020, the company is introducing a new collection of natural floral prints from hand-painted watercolors and soft pastel colors. The collection offers only the finest fabrics from Vorarlberg textile companies. Playful, but with an eye for detail. The goods are packed in a fine cardboard box, for the sake of the environment no plastic is used.
