Backhausen is based on three pillars: perfection, aesthetics and individuality. These pillars account for the company’s extraordinary weaving techniques and its outstanding international story of success – it all began in the northern region of lower Austria – The Waldviertel
The weaving mill, an innovative trend-setter, makes possible the realisation of even the most challenging designs, thus ensuring the high quality and longevity of Backhausen’s fabrics, that will be enjoyed by many generations to come.
Having arguably the world’s largest, textile archive, the Backhausen archive, contains over 3,500 original designs from the time of the Jugendstil (art nouveau), the Wiener Werkstätte and twice as many different patterns more. Many of them were milestone creations that inspired generations of designers from all over the world, such as those designed by Josef Hoffmann, Koloman Moser and many more. Until today, this treasure of creative ideas inspires the designers of Backhausen to produce fabrics of the highest standard.
The unique art of weaving, perfectly interacting with modern technologies makes it possible to efficiently execute all design requests; from contract furniture companies to private projects, with a minimum from 50 running metres.
