125 YEARS, 365 DAYS – AND SCORES OF IDEAS FOR THE FUTURE
Only a few more days to go till the 125th year of the "Baumann evolution" draws to its end. This has been a fascinating year, and we look back upon it with great pleasure. However, it will give us even more pleasure to surprise you with textile creations in 2012 too – perhaps at one of the trade fairs and events introduced to you in this last newsletter of the year.
We would like to thank you very much for your interest, and wish you an inspirational Christmas holiday!
