Polyester made of Ocean Waste

Sustainability and environmental protection are firmly anchored in our corporate values. In addition to supporting local afforestation projects, we have been successfully developing and processing yarns made of recycled post-consumer PET for a long time. Now we are once again sending out a strong signal for the environment and against marine litter.

SEAQUAL® and Georg + Otto Friedrich - Together for a Clean Ocean

Together with the SEAQUAL® Initiative, which is committed to cleaning the oceans of marine litter, we have developed another highly sustainable textile: DecoTex Blue. It consists of more than 60% SEAQUAL®polyester fibres, which are made from recycled marine plastic.

Do you know that approx. 12 million tonnes of waste is dumped into our oceans every year?

The SEAQUAL® Initiative aims to clean the Mediterranean Sea of plastic waste and recycle this plastic by upcycling into new, environmentally friendly polyester fibres. For more detailed information about the SEAQUAL® Initiative click here.

We produce at three locations, exclusively in Germany. For us “Made in Germany” is more than just a hint about the location – it is a performance commitment. And we can be judged on this promise.

Uncompromising product quality requires optimal manufacturing processes. At Friedrich, a well elaborated workflow system ensures consistently reproducible quality standards. Each individual product can be tracked with a coded label, from the finishing plant to the warp knitting machine and filament. All textile-relevant tests can be carried out either in our in-house laboratory or by independent, external testing institutes. In this way, we ensure that our customers receive the highly quality, which they expect.

We focus on our core competences and work with the most capable and long term cooperation partners in every product area. High customer loyalty and long-term business relationships as well as the development of our company show us that we are on the right way.
