Christian Fischbacher has been in the hands of the same family since 1819. Our deep-seated passion for and knowledge of textiles is part of our heritage that has been passed down for six generations. Each generation has brought its own new ideas to the company and has thus contributed to our ability to maintain the high standards of quality and innovation throughout our history.
Since 2008, the company has been run by Michael Fischbacher and his wife Camilla. The two met while studying at Oxford University. Under their direction, a fresh, international spirit prevails at the headquarters in St. Gallen.
Before they took over the management of Christian Fischbacher, Camilla and Michael lived in England, Asia and the United States. CEO Michael Fischbacher speaks six languages, including Japanese and Mandarin. He represents the company’s roots in family tradition and principles, as well as its global focus. Art Director Camilla Fischbacher runs the in-house design studio and continues to drive the creative and innovative development of our products.
As with every generation, Christian Fischbacher today is a reflection of the personalities of its owners: family-oriented, modern and cosmopolitan, they stand for a kind of luxury that is not an end in itself, but rather about the importance of good quality and unique, individual design.
