Van Maele Weavers produces linen fabrics since 1906. In the early years it was mainly for military or technical applications ( tents, backpacks,…), postal bags, etc …
Today, some of these fabrics are still produced , but with finishes which greatly improve softness and handle.
Van Maele Weavers is a fully integrated producer (weaving, dyeing and finishing) of high-end fabrics for home furnishings : upholstery, curtains, sheers and paperbacked wall-coverings. These fabrics are sold worldwide.
Linen, which represents 90% of the production, is combined with novelty or natural yarns like raffia, metallic yarns, wool, horsehair, ... which gives the collection a refined exclusive and timeless look.
I am happy to announce that on July 16, 2015, “OJ Van Maele” successfully emerged from a long judicial procedure, recapitalized, reorganized, and renewed. This was made possible thanks to the help of an American investment group made up of design industry leaders who firmly believe, first and foremost, in the “OJ Van Maele” organization, in the value and importance of luxury weaving, and in the heritage of how we do it.
With their help and support, the new “Van Maele Weavers” is pleased to begin an era based on the same principals as those “OJ Van Maele,” started with in 1906, coupled with renewed financial strength, stability, innovation and creativity.
Van Maele Weavers remains a fully integrated producer of high-end fabrics for home-furnishing: upholstery, curtains, sheers, and wall-coverings, with world-wide exports. Linen represents the majority of the production, combined with natural or novelty yarns such as raffia, horsehair, and abaca, which give the collection a refined, sophisticated look. Timeless classic designs are woven on dobby looms and proposed in beautiful colors and finishes.
Quality has been a long-standing priority of the OJ Van Maele organization, and the new Van Maele Weavers will continue to provide the same full array of high-quality products and services. We will improve and expand upon the organization's current offering—weaving, dyeing and finishing—to provide a level of products and services unrivaled in the marketplace. If you have any questions regarding our products or services, please do not hesitate to contact us.
We want to thank all of you who were there for us during the dark times and want you to know that we deeply appreciate your past support and look forward to a bright future, prosperity, and our continued working relationship.
