We DO love and live textiles everyday. Growing up in a genuine family company (from both sides of my grandparents), I remember playing as a six year old between rolls of fabric, admired the loud embroidery machines, and spun yarn threads (much to my parents' annoyance) throughout the company building. The most beautiful experience is seeing step by step what can become out of a single thread of yarn: an embroidery on a wedding dress for the most important day, a cotton fabric for a famous stage decoration, a dance dress that can be seen on a TV show, or a simple gymnastics training suit that brings a smile to the face of a little girl. It just feels really good to sell honest products with honest quality, and receive great feedback from our customers...

Company history

ERNESSA-trend was founded in 1989 by Gerhard Erne. At first, the father-in-law's older embroidery machines were used, primarily for underwear and women's outerwear, as well as valuable embroidered fabrics for the African market.

Thanks to the tireless work and Gerhard's many years of expertise, the company quickly grew to become a well-known manufacturer of high-quality embroidery and fabrics. ERNESSA is now one of the most important suppliers for the dance industry, for well-known theaters and stages around the globe, as well as designers and fabric shops. The small innovative and creative team consists of his wife Ingrid and his son Dominik, as well as several long-term employees. Despite a difficult situation during the corona crisis 2020, Dominik Erne takes over the reins as managing director.
