About us

The DITF German Institutes of Textile and Fiber Research Denkendorf form the largest textile research center in Europe with more than 300 scientific and technical staff, covering an area of more than 25,000 m².

As the world’s only textile research facility DITF carry out applied research across the entire production and value chains.

Since 1921, we have been across all the major fields within textiles. From brainstorming all the way through materials research, prototype and production process development to pilot production and testing, we are an important R & D partner for both industrial and service enterprises. We are a major source of innovative know-how, particularly for small and medium-sized enterprises.

We quickly transfer sustainable results into profitable realizations and applications. The main objective is the transfer of scientific results into marketable processes, products and services.

Products and services

At DITF innovative technologies are developed and applied here to enable new and better products and processes. Furthermore DITF conducts research and makes developments for applications.

Market-ready products, processes, and services for all of the forward-looking areas in the textile world are created in close and trusting cooperation with the industry.

At the fair will be shown research examples from the areas of filament yarn spinning and nonwovens, staple fiber spinning, carbon recycling, fiber composite materials, e-textiles and lighting applications of textiles.
