    Finest handkerchiefs with tradition

    Founded in 1920 in the Bohemian town of Hohenelbe, the mushroom handkerchiefs with their unmistakable company logo quickly became synonymous with cloth handkerchiefs finest workmanship.

    Cloth handkerchiefs by Alfred Pilz

    After the war, the company moved to Aalen, where it was quickly said: "Aalen wipes the world's nose" and "always a healthy nose ahead with Pilz handkerchiefs". The Pilz-Werke merged with the traditional Berlin company Pellens & Loick (Pelo) - our gift boxes therefore refer to both companies in an illustrative manner. Weaving and sewing was done in Aalen up until the 1980s, today in a small clothing factory in Hungary. Design, packaging and all the ironing, folding and laying still take place in Aalen.
