Company

History and origins

Schlegel + Co came into being in 1932 as the successor company of Textilwerke AG. Initially, the family business concentrated on the manufacture of fashionable printed cotton fabrics. Over time, the company developed a second branch to its business, trading in and processing textiles. The company was transformed into a joint stock company in 1990.

Today, Schlegel manufactures a wide range of fabrics that have become synonymous with theatre and opera stages, events and the manufacture of exhibition stands. Even costume departments purchase their basic requirements from Schlegel & Co. AG. In the meantime, the company has become an acknowledged specialist throughout Switzerland for textiles in the theatre and events sectors.

You will find the company’s offices and salesroom at a privileged location right in the heart of Basle, a city with an international ambience. You will almost certainly not regret a visit to our company and perhaps a stroll through the adjoining Old Town.

Sewing workshop

The company’s very own sewing workshop, where professional seamstresses prepare curtains, backcloths or three-dimensional pieces in accordance with customer requirements and wishes, takes up an entire floor. Years of experience in the theatre and events sectors and specialist knowledge coupled with comprehensive fabrics know-how enable us to advise our customers individually and professionally. If we can’t do it, then it just can’t be done!
