Essedea was founded in 2003 as a spin-off from the warping company Heinrich Essers, the global leader in warp beam preparation. With its more than 100 years of experience, the group is one of the specialists in technical textiles in Europe. Essedea developes and produces 3DEA® Spacer Fabrics – innovative, three-dimensional high-tech textiles, 100 % made in Germany.
As one of the global innovation leaders in the field of spacer fabrics of the latest generation, Essedea is a competent and reliable partner for the development of niche products or the realization of series production in this area. Highest product and process quality, innovative R&D activities, efficient supply chain management and economic efficiency are the key elements of our corporate philosophy.
3DEA® spacer fabrics consist of a bottom and top layer that are kept at a precisely defined distance to each other by means of resilient threads. The extraordinary properties of these three-dimensional textiles enable optimal functionality for almost any application in a great variety of industries.
Using the latest knitting technologies, Essedea can optimally adjust the bottom or top sides of the spacer textile and the spacer thread independently from each other for any customer application. This allows different surface constructions, heights ranging between 10 and 55mm, and different hardness grades of the 3DEA® spacer material.
Essedea sells its spacer textiles world-wide under the inter- national registered trademark 3DEA®.
