This year marks the anniversary of textile innovator Création Baumann, a fourth-generation, family owned company known for its innovative textiles and eco-friendly production and products.
In 1886 Friedrich Baumann and Albert Brand founded “Brand & Baumann” for the manufacture and distribution of linen goods. After going their separate ways at the start of the 20th century, Friedrich Baumann set up his own business which was taken on by his sons Willy and Fritz in 1930.
After the Second World War, the enterprise was split into two; an upholstery fabric manufacturing plant and a linen weaving mill. Fritz Baumann took charge of the linen weaving mill, which developed into the trademark “Création Baumann”. In 1951 the enterprise, which was also producing curtain fabrics, relocated to Langenthal, Switzerland—the company's current headquarters.
Since 2000, the management has been in the hands of CEO Philippe Baumann, a fourth generation member of the Baumann family. Today Création Baumann has a staff of 260 people, 9 subsidiaries, 40 representatives worldwide and company showrooms in New York, Paris, Tokyo and London. The company boasts in excess of 6,000 items for window treatments, upholstery, fabric panels, vertical blinds and roller blinds are available.
“My family, myself and the entire company are very proud to have reached our 125th year as a family owned company. We have been able to stay true to our original vision of producing sustainable, innovative and beautiful fabrics. We look forward to many more years of the same and extend a special thank you to our clients and all who have been involved in our success,“ said Baumann.
Because of its attention to specialized testing Création Baumann counts among their hospitality and cultural clients the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Smithsonian Institute, Wynn Hotels, the British Museum in London the Paul Klee museum in Bern, the Hotel de Paris in Monte Carlo and the Takano Yuri Cohaku Spa in Tokyo.
