Bringing people together
Since 1842, six generations have succeeded at the head of the Haas Tanneries. A a family-run business that has successfully stood the test of time by designing in its workshops the most exquisite calf leathers.
A tradition's legacy
Founder Aloïse Haas acquired a spinning mill, turned it into a tannery, then built up a diversion canal onto the Andlau river.
Émile Haas, Aloïse’s son, took over the tannery and developed new leathers.
Alfred Haas, Aloïse’s second son, started up the production of « Box-Calf », which is a chrome-tanned calf leather.
His son Jacques-Alfred Haas, became part of the company and started the production of “spinning calf” used for the spinning mill machines.
The Novocalf ® innovation was rewarded a gold medal at the Brussels World Fair.
Roland Muller, Jacques-Alfred’s son-in-law, took over the business. He developed the Barenia® calf leather and diversified the production for the fashion industry.
