Needle factory (Germany)

This abandoned factory once belonged to one of the world’s leading brands in sewing machines. Established around 1900 in the U.S., this company used to be – and still is – famous for its innovative sewing solutions. The brand is furthermore well-known for its fruitful collaboration with renowned architects, who have designed several of its factories and office buildings. Up until 2001 the needles for the sewing machines were manufactured in this particular factory. In this same year, the factory changed owner, only to be abandoned three years later, when maintenance costs became unaffordable.
