Emanuel Lang, le savoir-faire français

Emanuel Lang, French know-how

Read time 1

We are proud to have once again worked with a French company for the development of our linen and cotton seersucker shirt. We had already trusted Velcorex for the velvet of our work jackets this winter, which was one of the most beautiful velvets that we had been able to discover: a soft touch, a soft thickness, and a particularly pleasant suppleness on this type of pieces.

For our summer collection, it was from the French company Emanuel Lang that we found our first seersucker. Founded in 1856, it creates high quality fabrics, and specializes in rare weaves and designs not found elsewhere.

For more than 160 years, the company located in Hirsingue in Haut-Rhin has passed on its know-how from generation to generation. From the design of the drawings to the final control of the fabrics, Emanuel Lang is recognized for his work of great precision, which supports French excellence within the textile industry.

By positioning itself at the forefront of French know-how, Emanuel Lang wishes to work in a short circuit, in order to ensure traceability on each of its products.

It is also one of the rare French suppliers of shirt fabrics to ensure all the manufacturing stages from yarn to fabric: winding, warping, gluing and weaving all take place in this Alsatian workshop made up of around twenty people. This mastery and know-how allow them to face competition from the Asian market in particular, which, in the 2000s, threatened the company with bankruptcy.

To stand out from the crowd, the company decided to offer more sophisticated fabrics, with interesting textures such as seersucker , becoming the main European supplier to offer such complex and innovative fabrics.

By positioning itself at the forefront of French know-how, Emanuel Lang wishes to work in a short circuit, in order to ensure traceability on each of its products. The growing use of materials such as linen , hemp and nettle grown in Europe demonstrates the company's interest in both the environmental and ethical causes. So much so that in 2019, with expertise in weaving around natural materials, Emanuel Lang is the first to reinvest in a linen spinning mill since the 90s. An activity which had completely disappeared under the effect of The relocation.

Emanuel Lang is a fine example of know-how, innovation and modernity, with whom we are happy to be able to work!
