After the second world war, Günther Drews founded his own textile business which became an internationally operating company.
The brand DREWS is dedicated to his personality.
With the brand DREWS BAZIN, our company BARILUX textiles honors Günther Drews and his achievements (see box). Even if his former textile mills belong to the past, his philosophy to succeed with the best quality and experience in the market still keeps is legacy alive today.
Familiy values and traditions play an essential role not only inside our company but also for the culture of wearing guinea brocade. Consequently, we are very proud to partner with the musician Toumani Diabaté, his son Sidiki Diabaté and the whole familiy as our ambassadors for our brand DREWS BAZIN.
Known as one of the worldwide best kora players, Toumani Diabaté descends from a griot familiy, which goes back for about 70 generations. His sons, Sidiki and Balla Diabaté, follow this path while inventing new styles and sounds.
