The oldest provable textile professions are dated in Svitavy to the year 1516. There is cited the name of the first cloth maker in the chronicles. The count of profession masters was still grown and there were already so many masters in the town about 1760, they could not earn a living. Because old profession rules were restraining from business activities, the textile field was setting apart profession production at times of the first manufactures in 1773 and became to the free occupation. Heinrich Klinger asked the district authorities in Moravska Trebova for permission buying and manufacturing of flax fabrics. He founded the first textile production in Svitavy in 1866 – branch of his Viennese firm. Another from founders of Svitavy´s textile industry Julius Preussfreund put up the mechanical jute mill. He left the town in 1881 and Heinrich Klinger joined the mill to his company. It was founded k. k. Leinenwaarenfabrik.
