Since 1831

Exquisite taste, elevated quality and a refined sense of luxury – these are the principals on which Sahco was founded. Since 1831 Sahco serves the needs of a cosmopolitan audience who demand elegant, contemporary design in the best possible quality. 

Sahco’s story starts in 1831 when the company’s founder decided to build on generations of his family’s knowledge of the textile trade and set up his own business in Southern Germany. Together with his son, he specialized in importing fine carpets, silks and upholstery fabrics from both France and the Far East, slowly building up a business that survived the economic and social turmoils of Europe to become truly international. By the end of the Twentieth Century, the company had worldwide distribution emanating from its new head-quarters in Nuremberg and its showrooms in Paris, London, Milan and Munich.

In May 2018, Sahco was acquired by Kvadrat, one of the world’s leading design textile companies based in Denmark. With a new creative team in place and the shared knowledge of two rich design heritages, Sahco enters an exciting new phase in its long history.
