OUR HISTORY

Textiles

Our story, as Thygesen & Birk, began in 2010, where two renowned Danish companies joined their threads to create an innovative international company. The company was established on the foundations of Thygesen Fabrics, founded in 1931 and with great know-how within high quality fabrics for the fashion, sportswear and underwear industry, and on Birk Jersey, founded in 1975 with great experience and knowledge within jacquard, jersey, rib and basic fabrics.

Our heritage and traditions hold a very special place in our heart; we aim to maintain the spirit of our founders and the spirit of good Danish craftsmanship.

We are deeply rooted in the proud traditions of the Danish textile industry and we are driven by the wish to secure our textile heritage worldwide. We are located in Denmark where it all began, but we have also expanded our production to facilities in Poland. We take pride in preserving our Danish textile heritage. We have the passion, expertise and drive for creating. We are one of few European knitting manufacturers, and we are determined to hold our ground and keep the textile industry in Europe.

We are one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of innovative, trendy and high quality fabrics. With over 50 years of experience, knowledge and passion we develop and produce high quality circular knitted and warp knitted fabrics.
