About us

At home in the contract market

DELIUS offers the suitable concept for every kind of project: flame-retardant blackout fabrics and sheers as well as furnishing and upholstery fabrics in differing designs. These give a suitable well-feeling atmosphere to hotels, restaurants, old age people's homes, hospitals, cinemas offices, schools and kindergarten.

The Delius family are now in the 9th generation and are at the helm of a worldwide active company. In other words: the company has become a well-known strong and professional business partner due to the high quality of its products and its long-term competence in the world of textiles. Today, the trademark Delius is well known for its modern design, first class quality fabrics and its multi-functional fabric finishing. Numerous references prove Delius to be high in competence and reliability within the contract market.

In order to meet the highest quality requirements the product developments are subjected to numerous technical tests. Independent testing institutes examine and confirm the excellent properties – for example the quality of flame retardent fabrics for contract use world wide.

Our Mission

We are specialist in functional furnishing textiles!

Our fabrics can do more than you think. They not only decorate a room but also provide a variety of functions. Delius fabrics are blackout, they improve acoustics in a room, they reduce bacteria and energy consumption and they offer glare protection. Our upholstery fabrics are easy to clean, anti-bacterial and moisture-proof. All properties are tested by independent laboratories and confirmed by certificates.

We want our textiles to be long-lasting; we have respect to the preservation of nature and health as well as the value of our work. Our quality claim relates to the ecological aspects of our fabrics, to their durability and their innovative character. We want you to feel comfortable with our textiles, today and in the future.

 


Health and Well-Being

"Our product examinations are based upon scientifically founded parameters and are continuously adjusted to the current state of legal requirements." Angelika Schmidt-Koch, Qualitymanagement

Delius textiles are safe as regards to health. For this reason, the textiles are tested in an accredited laboratory. Regular surveillance guarantees continuing quality. We adhere to all legal guidelines and promise that our textiles correspond to all regulations.


Sustainability

"Continuity and reliability are closely related to the name Delius. Our family runs this company with much joy and engagement, now in its 9th generation.“ - Rudolf Delius, Managing Partner

 

Sustainable activities mean a careful dealing with natural resources, responsibility for people and the focus upon economic success of our company. For almost 300 years of company history Delius has encompassed this philosophy. A thoughtful company management as well as long term planning has ensured responsibility for our employees and products; this has always been our main focus.

Creativity and Functionality

"Our creative department continuously develops new products with high technical properties in order to achieve the right result for each one of our customers." - Andrea Rueger, Manager Product Development

 
DELIUS convinces by the demanding design of high quality contract textiles which are suitable for almost every day-to-day challenge. Modern design, innovative products as well as highest quality and functionality requirements are part of the development of our fabrics.

We focus upon technical properties such as flame retardancy, durability and developments for special use. DELIUS sets the benchmark for functional fabrics. The name DIMOUT, for example, does not only stand for the product, but has become a generic term for blackout fabrics.


Responsibility for nature and the environment

REACH is the European chemical regulation for the registration, the assessment, the admission and the limitation of chemical substances. It ensures a high protection level for human health and the environment. REACH is based upon the principal of the producer, the importer and subsequent users assuming responsibility for their chemicals.

This is exactly what we do!

DELIUS acts according to the principals of the regulation and know its responsibility for the chemicals in use and therefore for nature and the environment.

Assuming responsibility for human beings

Biocides are substances and products, which prevent the growth of germs. Biocides are being used in many areas of private and professional life; for example they are used as anti-bacterial cleaning and disinfectant materials, as wood protection materials as well as anti-midges-sprays.
A few fabrics of the DELIUS collection contain these substances in order to prevent the growths of bacteria in the fabrics. The biocide properties are of particular importance for the health & care market.


Engagement

We accept responsibility for society and commit ourselves long-term. In order to be able to do this as efficiently and focussed as possible, we have joined up with other companies, who show the same social engagement as us.
