History of Classic Cotton spinning mill
The origin of the spinning mill in Josefov in Jaromer dates back to 1896. In 1892, the sugar factory owned by Antonin Cerych burned down. After the disaster, the factory was transformed into a mechanized production of wool carpets. Due to poor sales, the production was transformed into a spinning mill (production of cotton goods) in 1896. The prosperous spinning mill in Josefov was then expanded to a capacity of 50 000 spindles until 1907. In 1946, the spinning mill was nationalized and incorporated into Cotton Spinning and Weaving Mills NatCO Jaromer, where it was until 1948. In 1948, the company was renamed LINA, Spinning and Weaving Cotton NatCO Jaromer. During the next reorganization, it was then incorporated into the national company TIBA, the cotton plant in Dvur Kralove nad Labem.
Current production program
Clasic Cotton s.r.o. was founded in 1992. The closed TIBA 07 plant, producing just 100% cotton yarn until then, was privatized.
In 1993, Wagenfelder Spinnereien GmbH joined as the majority owner, acquiring 73,5% of shares in the company. The arrival of this company enabled the exchange of technological equipment and the expansion of production possibilities with special types of yarns.
The production range started to specialize in blends of all types of fibers, a new production of chenille yarns was opened. Chenille yarns were also the basic assortment during the first 10 years of the existence of the company.
Over time, the company has started its expansion into the European market and became a major subcontractor for IKEA. However, this cooperation was terminated in 2014 as the production of IKEA was transferred production to Asia.
We produce classic and even rotor yarns, smooth and flame /flatt and slub yarn/, single and twisted. It is yarns in blends with natural fiber - linen and hemp - that are the basic production program of the company. Yarn VS/linen, PES/linen, Cotton/linen, VS Bamboo/linen and various multi-component blends are supplied throughout Europe and are used mainly in the production of furniture fabrics.
This is where the company's strategy manifests the most - to produce a wide range of yarns with special mixing and representation of gray and colored fibers and not to try to compete large spinning mills with so-called simple production / 100% cotton, 100% VS, 100% PES/. The biggest specialty of the company is the production of melange yarns with dyed linen - we are the only producer in the world to produce this kind of yarn.The company is OEKO certificate and ISO 9001 certificate holder.
In August 2020, the business shares of Clasic Cotton spinning mill s.r.o. were bought from the previous owners - the Wagenfelder Spinnin Group - by group of investors associated with Acort Group a.s.
In the year 2021 our spinning mill was renamed to Classic Cotton s.r.o.
