Today, many consumers want to know exactly where textiles are originated and produced and under what conditions. Those looking for sustainable textiles for the bathroom, will make a find at möve: Since 1927, the family-run business produces towels, bathmats and bathrobes “made in Germany”. Long before the term “Sustainability” arose, möve has already invested in environmental protection and fair manufacturing conditions.

With an environmental and energy efficient investment policy, möve contributes to obtain flora and fauna at the production site, Größschönau in the Oberlausitz, for future generations. With extensive investments (total: 6.5 million euros) during the past few years, möve supported sustainability and environmental protection. For example, möve operates a new solar plant (capacity of over 70.000 kWh / year). Recently, möve took its own cogeneration plant into operations, which contributed a significant improvement of the energy balance of the company. Together with the solar system already installed, 1/3 of the total electricity demand is produced by environmentally friendly power self-supply.

By the way: the möve factory is open to visitors for free tours at all times; everyone can visualize fair working conditions, environmental protection and quality requirements.
