History
Shaping Nearly 100 Years of Fashion...

Founded in Freiburg, Germany, in 1919, Madeira has always been committed to the production of high quality embroidery threads.

In 1975, the company began to shift its concentration from the domestic German market to the global marketplace. Then in 1987, subsidiaries were set up worldwide to streamline the distribution process. Today, Madeira maintains a presence throughout the USA, Europe, Japan and key Asian markets.

The international presence proves to be a major benefit for clients, offering complete inventories, close proximity to markets, on-time shipments, access to the latest products and raw materials, and design solutions tailored to meet the needs of local markets.
