Story of Comazo: from Germany to Russia

How it all began?

In 1884 farmer and sales agent Conrad Maier from city of Albstadt near Stuttgart started to knit fabrics in his living room.

How did the name appear?
Conrad Maier Zum Ochsen = Comazo
At that time streets in the town did not have names. There was a hotel named ‘Oxen’ near the factory, so the citizens called the place “Conrad Maier zum Ochsen”, or ‘Conrad Maier’s factory near “Oxen”, or briefly – Comazo.
How did the crown appear in the logo?
Conrad Maier put a crown in the Comazo logo as a symbol of quality of knitwear. There have been 2 major events in the German history of the second half of the 19th century: unification of Germany and its transformation into an industrial center of Europe. So at that time many German brands were putting an imperial crown on their logos.
After 150 years Comazo is…
Underwear that is highly popular in Germany

Despite difficult political and economical situation in Russia in the 1990-s we had a lot of professionals: people were eager and willing to work”.
