Tressa, is the oldest braid factory worldwide and the only one in Switzerland. Straw,a humble raw material, became the base for an important cottage-industry in the Freiamt, a region of the Canton of Aargau in Switzerland. Wohlen, at its center, developed into a hub of high fashion, where, for over two centuries, clever and inventive merchants created materials for the production and trimming of ladies hats. Combining straw with horse-hair, silk, hemp or cotton these products amaze by their unique and exquisite beauty.
Nowadays Tressa still produce a wide range of various hatbraids and also decorative ribbons, cords, laces, shoelaces, nylon core vents.
