The fragrance that protects your clothing against moths

It was probably no accident that the ORPHEA brand was developed and brought on the market in southern Switzerland. For the farther south you go in Europe, the more intense the fragrances. We owe it to ORPHEA or its patented technology that you can protect your clothes against moths with flower, lavender and precious wood fragrances.

The special story of ORPHEA starts in the 1920s when Johann Heinrich Bachmann, a Swiss inventor, began to collect recipes for effective natural remedies against insects. Thanks to his knowledge of herbs and plants, he created a complex formula containing over 400 elements extracted from plants and flowers able to protect wool garments naturally. In the mid-1960s, the invention was passed down to his daughter Sylvia. This is how a small-scale manual production unit got started before it was commercialised in the local Swiss market. The name ORPHEA refers to the Greek myth of Orpheus, the expressive figure of balance and musical harmony, as a metaphor for the pleasant natural fragrance of ORPHEA.
