Our factory is the only one on the Hungarian market to produce premium wool felt material since 1896.

More than 125 years of expertise and extremely environmentally friendly production technology allow organic wool felts to be continuously produced within the walls of the old factory building.

We are committed to promoting felt, as it is a textile that answers the challenges of modern times: natural, timeless, sustainable, renewable.   

Discover the versatility of wool felt!


Wool felt has properties such as the unique durability and resilience. The waviness of the fibers provides natural flexibility. This flexibility makes it resistant, while the outer covering of the fibers forms a protective film layer called Lanolin. This thin waxy coating on the wool fibers makes the wool waterproof. Wool can be dyed well, as the natural dyes penetrate right up to the middle of the fiber and the color becomes intense and permanent. Since all wool fibers have a natural moisture content, they are perfectly fireproof without any chemical treatment. 


1. Sheep shearing

The sheep are shorn every year, usually at the beginning of summer, so that the sheep are not warm during this period, but they already grow their fur back by the winter period. 


2. Wool cleaning

The  shorn wool is cleaned of plant and animal impurities, then carbonization takes place and the shearing machine tears the wool into elementary fibers.


3. Carding

The unruly wool fibers are combed into an orderly unit by the carding machine, so a continuous quilt is formed, which waits rolled up for the next step.


4. Felting

As a result of the high temperature and water vapor, the scales of the wool fibers open and cling to each other with the the help of the rubbing movements of the felting machine, this is how the felt is formed, which is further compacted by the fuller machine as needed.


5. Dying

The finished wool felt is then dyed to the desired shade with Oeko-Tex Standard 100 pigments. Unique color dying is also possible.


6. Drying

The finished felt is dried, ironed, or in the case of thick industrial felts, finished by pressing and stored in a roll.



At the flowing Gyöngyös stream at the border of Kőszeg, local industrialists had already been working on the post since 1841, and then the factory buildings, which are still standing today, began to be built.

in 1896 the factory was bought  for 11.000 Huf by hat maker Kamill Eisner and his brother from Prague.  The building was considered huge at the time, with all its equipment in it. According to the first reports, the new owner wanted to create a hat factory.

Most of the time, only the Eisner Brothers Felt Factory is mentioned in the documents, but based on the letterhead used by the company, it can be determined that their name was "Magyar Nemez-Ipar-Tarsaság." The construction and placement of the machines were probably finished at the beginning of 1898, because at that time they asked the city council to approve the factory work schedule. They got the permission, only Sunday work was removed from it. We could see that only the most necessary transformations were carried out to start production as soon as possible. 


​According to recollections, the equipment in the Factory was replaced in 1927. The "Vohl-type" machines manufactured in the 1880s, dismantled in a Czechoslovakian factory, were brought to Kőszeg,some of which still work today.
