Fisba-Stoffels, like many Swiss textile companies, was founded in St. Gallen, probably as early as 1895. It was called Fisba-Stoffels Taschentuch AG (Taschentuch means handkerchief). In 1907 they built a factory outside the canton of St. Gallen, in Elgg (canton of Zurich). Later on they produced not only handkerchiefs, but also scarves, sometimes also in silk. In 1988 they fusioned with the Fischbacher company, and the name Fisba-Stoffels disappeared. Christian Fischbacher AG is a well-known Swiss company, producing high-quality bed linens and interior fabrics, which has existed since 1819.
