Knowledge and innovation.
Our weaving mill is based in Avelgem, mere minutes away from Oudenaarde, which is Flanders’ historical tapestry weaving center. We are proud to continue the fine art of weaving and keep this remarkable legacy alive. Our team aspires to offer the widest possible scope of high-end techniques and textures, ranging from the sophisticated Jacquard to high-end wilton. We achieve luxurious high pile, elegant cut and loop (commonly referred to as Brussels weave), and even intricate high-performance rugs. The finest materials are selected to weave our products, from natural fibres such as pure wool or cotton to even recycled polyester. OSTA highly values its in-house knowledge, and so the design team joins forces with our skilled master craftsmen to innovate and create the unexpected.

Early 1973 the American multinational Allied Chemical (later Allied Corporation) established a production plant called Klippan in Ieper, Belgium. Its task was to manufacture and assemble parts of safety belts to subassemblies. The final assembly was done in the European associated companies that also sold the products. At that time the company employed 600 people.
At the end of 1981 Klippan nv was closed due to economical reasons. Three months later the weaving mill started new production, yet its reduced version was no longer interesting to Allied and the company decided to sell Klippan. IEPERBAND nv was established in 1983.
Thanks to investments in looms and dyeing installations IEPERBAND nv soon grew and won a European market share of approximately 25%, in just a few years time.
To be able to survive in an extremely competitive market IEPERBAND nv merged with the German ELASTIC BERGER Gmbh company in 1987, co-manufacturer of woven band with establishments in Germany, Ireland and Spain.
In Europe, the BERGER GROUP is a leader in the car safety belts industry and has production plants in Belgium, Spain, Germany and China. Besides Europe, it has smaller market shares in China and the United States of America.
The parent company in Germany was established by owner Johann Berger in 1968. First, only elastic bands were produced. Later on, the company discovered the potential of car safety belts.
The BERGER GROUP owes its success also to its approximately 400 committed, motivated and innovative employees. They form a valuable potential whereby development and innovation, aimed at the international market requirements, are at the centre.
The consequent development of the technical safety fabrics’ technology, based on the demands of the car industry, along with the help of the Tier 1 customers, offers the Berger Group an exclusive opportunity to develop and market new technologies.
IEPERBAND nv manufactures woven band for safety belts in cars. This includes weaving, dyeing, setting, winding-up, checking and cutting to size.
The various types of bands are homologated by the Tier 1 customers and the car manufacturer, this means that the woven band is only produced after a formal approval of a particular reference sample. The base material is high tenacity polyester yarn.
The European safety belt market is characterised by its transparency and oligopolic features. The number of yarn suppliers, weaving mills manufacturing safety belts and system manufacturers is therefore rather limited. The pressure of Asian yarn suppliers increases. To maintain its competitive position the Berger Group works with Asian yarn suppliers
The overall annual use in the European car industry is a known and easy to observe item of information. The proportional market share of the various woven band manufactures is therefore rather easy to determine.
Cheap raw materials, labour costs control, flexibility and quality are becoming more and more the basic elements defining the power of the company.
Higher quality demands and the ever increasing price pressure forces us to constantly optimise our processes, and to manufacture in a more productive and cheaper manner.

We strive for full client satisfaction on every level by furnishing them with fabrics and textile products that will make a clear difference through:
As far as design is concerned, our creative department spots and picks up trends in their earliest stages, long before they become mainstream.
Furthermore we do not compromise on quality. Our products are generally qualified as extremely durable and luxurious, thanks to the exquisite yarns, craftsmanship, knowhow and meticulous production techniques.
Size and nature of your design, weaving and/or printing and a large choice of finishings, personalization, the colors of your choice, the required stain release or fire retardant coating… as far as customization is concerned everything can be done to meet your needs and wishes.
We are proud of our Belgian/Flemish origin and of our Belgian and French workforce. Everything we sell is made in our own mills, with raw materials we source from central European countries. What better proof of quality can you possibly require?
The roots of the Fibertex company go back as far as the nineteen-twenties when Emile Legon started his flax and cotton bleaching and dyeing business in Kortrijk. In the mid-seventies the actual Fibertex company was founded, now combining both weaving and finishing activities.
Continuous growth and subsequent investments led to the need for larger production facilities. The actual plant and headquarters on the grounds of the Kortrijk/Wevelgem airport date from 1992 and present the state-of-the-art in weaving, printing and finishing of textile niche products such as upholstery, curtains and textile wall coverings.
The common thread through the entire company history: the Legon family. Today’s ownership and management of the Fibertex company is in the hands of already the 4th Legon generation. This family approach stands for a daily and far-reaching involvement of the management, for real customer intimacy and for short communication lines.

DeltraconDeltracon Contact: Darline Delchambre
Deltracon is a family owned weaving mill of high end linen fabrics.
Deltracon was founded in 1990 by Rudy & Kathleen Delchambre. In 2013 their daughter, Darline, also started working in the company.
We produce linen fabrics for sheers, drapery, upholstery and wallcovering. Some or our fabrics are also used for bed- and table linen. Plains, dobbies, jacquards and embroidered fabrics are produced in 140/150 or 300 cm. Using natural noble materials has always been our passion.
In 2009 we took over a Belgian trimming company and renamed it Flanders’ Trimmings.
This company produces high quality trimmings & tiebacks/tassels.
After the unfortunate demise of Van Maele Weavers in October 2018, Deltracon decided not to let Van Maele’s history go lost since it suited so well with its’ own.
We purchased 10 weaving looms with 24 shafts, the entire yarn stock, archives and the Van Maele name.
These additional looms will enable Deltracon to produce more complicated dobby designs and paperbacked wallcoverings.
Deltracon treasures the past, present and is especially looking to the future since now a complete range of home furnishing fabrics can be offered.

Our linen world
We have been passionate about linen since 1858, initially as a trading house in Kortrijk, and later in Meulebeke when the weaving mill was established. Our belief in flax and linen as a sustainable premier product has only grown throughout the years.
Belgian premier quality
Our focus on a single raw material has led to extensive specialization in a range of markets and a renown position internationally: we are among the largest linen weaving mills in Europe.
Only 6 weavers around the world may carry the Belgian Linen™ quality label. This has been a symbol of linen woven in Belgium from at least 85% European flax fibers since 1960. It is a guarantee of quality, traceability and authenticity, which is independently managed and supervised by the Belgian Linen Association.
MASTERS OF LINEN®
Libeco linen carries the Masters of Linen® quality label. This guarantees that the linen was entirely made in Europe with a guarantee of transparent production processes and traceability. This label was introduced by (and is monitored by) the European Confederation for Flax and Hemp, or CELC.
