Our fine papers can look back on a very long tradition – all the way to the 16th century when Düren first became a paper town. The mill was founded by Felix Heinrich Schoeller. He introduced the lily which today adorns the entrance gate to our company as a golden emblen and which is used as watermark in two of our papers. The lily stands for the tradition to which we feel obliged. The lily dates back to Rütger von Scheven – the founding father of all of Düren’s paper makers – who already used it as a watermark.
