Craftmanship as Passion

Savoir-Faire since 1854

The crowning glory of each and every Eskimo plaid is the savoir faire which has been passed down through generations of passionate and experienced experts. This stands both for outstanding craftsmanship skills and a tradition of innovation.


Duty of tradition

The woolen goods factory Schweiz. Wollwarenfabrik Neu-Pfungen is founded by Ferdinand Ernst in 1854. The company processes cotton, wool, silk, camel hair, alpaca wool, llama wool, etc. sourced from all over the world. A number of renowned textile machinery manufacturers such as Sulzer and Rieter are established in Switzerland, as are clothing companies in the Winterthur region which occupy a leading position in the area of fashion. Eskimo is launched as a brand name in 1973 and stands for quality blankets made in Switzerland. Eskimo Textil AG earns itself international renown with its production of in-flight blankets, sleep blankets, travel blankets, throws and children’s blankets, as well as fabrics for uniforms.
