When Valentin Fraas founded the company in 1880, he only had ten employees. With a lot of hard work, V. Fraas grew to employ around 100 staff by the turn of the century. The company quickly outgrew its home in Franconia and developed further into an international manufacturer in 1982. Subsidiaries in New York, Toronto, London and Hong Kong were founded; Sales offices later followed in the Czech Republic, Russia, Poland, Japan and Korea. Today, FRAAS relies on the perfect mix of tried-and-tested quality standards, trends, sustainable production and fresh ideas for its products. Scarves are, quite simply, our world.
