The Accessories Specialist Since 1880

Valentin Fraas"Since 1880 our company history has proven that long-term success is attributable to effort and work. Maintaining this tradition is passed on by experiences which demonstrates, that despite all technical progress, unstable political conditions and changes in economic variables, it is the devotion to the company, joy in the task and hard work, that lay the unchanging basis for a successful company future."

- Arthur Fraas, 3rd Generation of V. FRAAS



V. Fraas (named after its founder, Valentin Fraas pictured above) has been manufacturing scarves and textile accessories in Germany for over 135 years. In 1880, Valentin Fraas began as a hand weaver, making scarves, neckerchiefs and shawls in his one-man operation in Wüstenselbitz; a small Upper Franconian town with a prominent textile tradition. Then, weavers could produce a maximum of 143 scarves a day. Today, in the fifth generation of V. FRAAS, we produce more than 280 times as many, every day!

Around the world, in 25 locations, 600 employees are working for V. FRAAS; up to twelve million scarves are manufactured annually. Our company-owned manufacturing locations have made V. FRAAS the world's leading manufacturer in the distribution and sale of scarves and textile accessories.

At V. FRAAS we also develop custom-designed lines for private labels. Many renowned domestic and international companies use our manufacturing and services for their own brands. Our customers can also choose from the wide range of original accessories bearing our own private label brand "FRAAS – THE SCARF COMPANY," which has been offered since 2006.

The philosophy of V. FRAAS is expressed through high standards in design and in product quality. Scarves are our history, our passion and our heritage. "Scarves are our world."
