Our institute is a non-profit research institution in the Free State of Saxony, committed to the long-standing traditions of Saxon textile research. Our process- and product-related R&D work reflects classical textile technologies as well as innovative, unconventional solutions for the broadest range of applications. We cultivate exchange with companies and research institutions in Germany and abroad and support companies in the regional textile industry with our know-how.

We are committed to respecting internationally recognised human rights in accordance with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, in particular the International Bill of Human Rights and ILO core labour standards, and we advocate compliance with them.
