Get creative with fabrics from Zweigart®

Embroidery is more than just a hobby: it gives everyone the chance to discover themselves and give their own creativity free reign. In addition to the inventive and creative aspect, the joy of making things oneself and the feeling of having created something unique, embroidery offers one thing above all: tranquillity and recuperation from the everyday stress.  Embroidery puts all of one’s attention on oneself and the work they’re creating, allowing a chance to switch off and set the everyday stress aside and forget one’s surroundings for a moment. Embroidery is yoga for the soil.

The largest collection selection in the world

All embroidery is based on needlework fabrics, upon which any desired embroidery technique can be put into practice. They have a clear surface structure and are square, so that warp and weft thread count is always exactly the same.

The most important feature of ZWEIGART® needlework fabrics is its outstanding countability, which is achieved by high-precision weaving. This is especially important for cross-stitch motifs as embroidery on needlework fabrics usually involves counting. Nearly all of our needlework fabrics have a firm finish, making it easy to embroider even without a frame. The fabrics get softer after being washed, but they may also shrink a bit – this should be kept in mind. This rule generally holds true for embroidered fabrics: Always observe the care instructions for the threads used.

We offer a diverse range of needlework fabrics, such as Aidas, linen and evenweave, as well as a broad, fashionable colour palette. The collection is continuously updated for the latest trends.

Countless products

In addition to our needlework fabrics, damasks for embroidery and stramines, we also offer further items for needlework such as ribbons and lace, crochet shapes and needlework kits.

High quality

From purchasing the selected source materials, dying the yarn and grey fabric, weaving on state-of-the-art dobby and Jacquard machines to the finishing and refinement process, every production step is carried out 100% in-house at ZWEIGART®. Our trademark is the ORANGE LINE – an orange-coloured thread in the selvedge of all ZWEIGART® fabrics. This is our sign for best quality and state-of-the-art fabrics that are colourfast, easy-care and absolutely precise in the weaving. That’s ZWEIGART® “Made in Germany.”

Superlative quality and responsible resource management – a philosophy ZWEIGART® has practiced since the very beginning in 1877. We at ZWEIGART® firmly believe that sustainability must be put into practice actively so as to contribute to the conscientious use of resources. We have endeavoured to live up to these highest requirements on a daily basis for over 145 years.
