Alumo is a Swiss fabric brand that has been producing high-quality fabrics since 1918. The brand was founded by Walter Wirz in the small town of Appenzell, Switzerland. At first, the brand specialized in weaving cotton fabrics, but over time, they expanded to include a wide range of fabrics such as linen, silk, wool, and blends.
The name Alumo comes from the combination of the Latin word "alumen," meaning alum, and "mo," the abbreviation of "mollus," the Latin word for soft. Alum was a key ingredient in the production of cotton fabric in the early days of the company.
Alumo fabrics are known for their exceptional quality, softness, and durability. The brand is committed to sustainable and ethical production practices, ensuring that their fabrics are produced in an environmentally friendly and socially responsible way. Alumo fabrics are used by some of the world's leading fashion brands and designers, and the brand has become synonymous with the highest quality Swiss-made fabrics.
