ALUMO has been leading the way in cotton weaving and shirting fabric production for more than a century. What started as a small, family-owned company has flourished to become the preferred fabric supplier to renowned tailors and clothing brands the world over – always in the same Swiss quality on which ALUMO built its reputation.
ALUMO relies exclusively on the finest quality cotton to produce more than one million metres of shirting fabric per year for tailors and brands across the globe. And with every single centimetre of our two-ply fabric required to pass our rigorous quality checks, our passion for precision and commitment to excellence remain as unwavering today as when the company started back in 1918.
ALUMO is based in the mountainous region of Appenzell, the home of the Swiss textile industry for the past several centuries. In fact, there are ancient records showing that linen weaving has been practised in Appenzell since ancient times, with cotton gradually replacing it starting in the 18th century. ALUMO continues this long tradition of fabric production in the region by honouring its own heritage and demonstrating its commitment to craftsmanship across every step of the value chain.
