Göppinger Kaliko- und Kunstlederwerke

The Göppinger Kaliko- und Kunstlederwerke were founded in 1938 by a merger of two companies, the factory Netter & Eisig located in Göppingen and the Leder- und Wachstuchwerke AG in Kötitz. The production focus of the factories was on nitro-based artificial leather and the manufacture of bookbinding and roller blind fabrics. In the 1960s there was an increased demand for artificial leather products and high-quality interior fittings in the automotive industry, which meant that Göppinger Kaliko- und Kunstlederwerke was able to expand its production. In 1970 the company became the property of Bamberger Kaliko GmbH and mainly produced fabric for book covers and materials for sun protection.
