Backhausen looks back on a long standing tradition of over 165 years, dedicated to ‘the art of weaving’. For 7 generations the company was owned by the Backhausen family. In September 2014 the company changed ownership and was secured as a family owned Austrian business again.
With respect to the achievements of previous owners, the company continues the tradition of craftsmanship with verve and enthusiasm.
Since the beginning Backhausen was engaged in the production of high quality textiles and contributed to the Austrian cultural heritage. Many historical buildings in Vienna, other parts of Austria as well as internationally were furnished with fabrics from Backhausen. See the long list of references.
The substantial Archive of over 3,500 designs and artefacts’ that is still owned by Backhausen company, incorporates the designs of numerous artists through the past decades. It is an authentic document of taste of the past 165 years.
May we invite you on a journey to the milestones of this fascinating company.
