The "Goldkante"

ADO Goldkante has been like a common thread, running through our range of products for almost 50 years. In fact, this thread is golden, and serves as our brand logo!

You can find the golden thread on the lower seam of our drapery fabrics. A golden thread is entwined around a weight tape that enables our fabrics to hang from windows smoothly and evenly. The golden thread has weight; to be precise, a metre-long golden thread weighs 30 grams. However, draperies from ADO Goldkante are by no means heavy or clunky. Our textiles have a fresh and natural look and exude lightness and harmony.

Our quality

 

ADO fabrics offer a high level of functionality and quality. We have been vouching for our extraordinary product quality for a long time by offering a five-year guarantee.

Low-maintenance

 

A great deal of joy with minimal effort. We make sure that all of our fabrics are washable at a temperature of at least 30 °C and retain their shapes even after several washes.

Easy processing

 

ADO specialises in room-height fabrics, and at least 95 per cent of its fabrics have a fabric width of 280 cm or greater. This means that you receive twice as much fabric for your money, and the fabric is also easier to sew.

Colour- and light-fast

 

As beautiful as on the first day. Our fabrics retain their brightness and colour intensity and remain soft to the touch even when exposed to strong sunlight.

Versatile combination options

 

Everything goes well together. Our products feature colours and designs that are perfectly coordinated with one another, ensuring that you can always create a calm and individual interior design.

Milestones – On the path to success

 

Many brands accompany us through our lives, and we may often find ourselves wondering who or what is actually behind them. ADO Goldkante is a brand that is steeped in tradition with a long history. The company was founded by the Wulf family in 1954 and was named after the district in which it was founded: AschenDOrf in the region of Emsland. As a German brand, ADO set standards from the very beginning and developed innovative products for textile room design.

In 1968, the golden thread became the logo of the brand that has stood for high quality and continues to do so today. The brand also carries an enormous amount of potential when it comes to advertising: Over three-quarters of the German population recognise ‘that one with the golden thread’.

 

In 2013, ADO Goldkante was acquired by ZIMMER + ROHDE, an international textiles manufacturing group that draws on its rich tradition and wealth of experience spanning over 100 years to create and market high-quality, innovative interior textiles. Zimmer + Rohde, headquartered in Oberursel (near Frankfurt am Main), has branches in England, France, Italy, Poland, the Middle East, Asia and the US, and impresses customers worldwide with its top-quality products.
