XO EXTRA ORGANIC is an umbrella brand of Norafin Industries (Germany) GmbH, a specialist in the production of technical nonwovens with its headquarters in Mildenau in the middle of the Ore Mountains.
Arisen from the “Mechanische Flachsspinnerei Meyer & Co.” which had been founded in 1877 in Wiesenbad – just a few kilometers from our present site – we are engaged since the 1980s in the development of nonwoven solutions amongst others on the basis of natural fibers.
The cooperation with a French producer of high-quality flax fibers raised the development of new products on a natural fiber basis in the year 2006 to another level. Since then, a team of developers have searched for ecological alternatives to conventional products. One of the first outcomes is the evolution of a natural wallpaper based on flax fibers and viscose fibers, sourced from sustainable forestry, that was introduced to the market in 2017.
Further sustainable product solutions are currently under development.
