Our product lines:
Our core competence is to distribute finest and fashionable terry towels made of best-combed US cotton. With a vertical expansion in 2004 we now produce and market our own brand in our core market Switzerland but also internationally.
It was always our goal to create and market our own products. We generated know how based on the long lasting cooperation with Fieldcrest Cannon Inc., USA.
A specific touch, a great water absorption and a wide colour range of our CLASSIC collection convince any aesthetician. Wellness does not stop before pat drying!
Our BUSINESS line (formerly JETEX) stands for absolute quality but also affordable products of consumers but also for our commercial clients such as hotels, gyms, hair dressers, physiotherapists, beauty salons etc. With this brand we are focussing on a nice balance between ecology and economy without forgetting esthetic aspects of the users.
