Our Values

We live in a hectic, at times exhausting and fast-paced world. Stress at work is the norm and even outside of this we are subject to numerous factors beyond our control. That is why a comfortable, restorative haven—your home—is so important nowadays. We know how essential it is to feel at ease at home, which is why we value the highest quality in our textiles for the accessories in your living room, kitchen area, bathroom and bedroom.

Isn’t it lovely to buy an exquisite piece that brings one joy, is long-lasting and something we would like to have around all the time?

We definitely think so. We are convinced that conscious living is the key to happiness. However, we wish to share this happiness with the world, which his why we place our emphasis on sustainability of our products. It is not possible to imagine the textile industry without the worldwide division of labour. However, the relationships must become fairer in order for all those involved to profit. As Mary Rose, we accept responsibility for the role we play in this cycle. We make sure the resources used for our products are organically farmed and we take note of environmental and social standards in processing. This is also a part of conscious living: knowing your role for the environment and fellow humans.


Numerous bedding products we sell are GOTS certified, which you can see by the use of a green t-shirt symbol. The Global Organic Textile Standard, or GOTS, is the leading standard for textile processing of ecologically produced natural fibres. It defines environmental technology standards throughout the complete production chain on a high level while examining social criteria. Quality control is secured by an independent certification.

The aim of this standard is to define requirements that secure a sustainable production of textiles, from raw fibres to environmentally friendly and socially responsible fabrication to the labelling of the final product. This should ensure the consumer’s confidence in the product. The standard also covers the production, manufacturing, packaging, labelling, trading and distribution of textiles made of at least 70 % certified organically produced natural fibres. Yarns, fabrics, clothing, home textiles and further products made from textile fibres can be certified.

Fair Wear

The Fair Wear Foundation (or FWF) is an organisation that stands for the improvement of working conditions in the clothing and textile industry. The foundation reviews whether the member companies implement the principles of FWF in their production lines. It was founded in 1999 and has seen a steady increase in member companies ever since. We are proud to be members and the first company in the field of home textiles. Together with other members, we work on creating awareness for fairness in the production and shipment process. This awareness includes, among other things, limitation of working hours, free choice of work place, no discrimination, safe and healthy working conditions and pay to secure one’s livelihood. We stand behind this organisation 100 % and work towards fairness becoming the norm in our industry rather than the exception. Here you can find further information: www.fairwear.org


Whenever possible, we work with regional suppliers and producers to preserve net product and strengthen companies at home. Our pillows’ fillings come from suppliers in Austria. Each pillow is filled, packaged and shipped to 100 % by the staff at Lebenshilfe Dornbirn.

We stand by inner-city business, which our shops in the centres of Innsbruck and Dornbirn clearly show. They increase the attractiveness of the inner-city, which in turn other shops and restaurants can profit from.

Social standards

PAPTEX Textilhandels GmbH (Wholesale Mary Rose), as a member of the BSCI (Business Social Compliance Initiative), is committed to compliance with social standards in the factories that manufacture our products.

The aim is to continuously and sustainably improve working conditions in production sites outside Europe as well and to ensure that legal requirements are met. To achieve this goal, the BSCI has developed a code of conduct to which its members commit.

Compliance with these provisions and the implementation of agreed improvement measures are regularly monitored by external auditing institutes.

Living Tradition

Tyrler has been a staple when it comes to bedding, down and home textiles in Innsbruck since 1825. We have passed this know-how on over generations, and continue to do so. Not only can you expect highest quality of our products, you can also experience tradition first hand. Watch bedding being sewn to measure or duvets being cleaned in one of our shops, which the boss takes care of personally. Or watch bedding being sewn and repaired to become like new in our very own tailor shop. At Tyrler and Mary Rose, personal consulting is our highest priority. Our experienced teams will gladly assist you with any questions you may have in order to secure relaxing and healthy sleep for you.


Schlossgugger House: a time capsule that has seen so much. It is the oldest house in Dornbirn and was placed under monument protection in 1967. Research revealed that the house was built around 1290. A striking feature is the gradual petrification of the original wood structure: a historical conversion from a wooden to wood-stone structure. We fell in love with this house, purchased it and see to it that it is taken care of and renovated. It shall be a home for new ideas. This is a project that brings us much joy!

Turn to zero

We are driven by the image of a future worth living in, in which we, but above all our descendants, can live a sustainable and livable everyday life. Many small but important steps are needed to make this vision of the future a reality. Because every opportunity to curb global warming must be seized. Together with turn to zero, we want to achieve a turnaround in our greenhouse gas balance. Thanks to the expert advice and in-depth greenhouse gas balancing provided by the turn to zero team, we have gained in-depth knowledge of the emissions in our company. This enables us to implement targeted measures to reduce the negative climate impact of our company.
We want to do our part, so one of our major goals is to make our production facility in Turkey climate positive. In order to be able to implement this climate goal, a photovoltaic system is to be installed on the roofs of our production halls in Denizli/Turkey at the beginning of 2023 and we would like to convert the entire production (incl. vehicle fleet to electric cars).
We are not perfect, but we want to contribute to an improvement and try to enable the way for a fair and socially sustainable home textile production while keeping our ecological footprint as small as possible.


Textiles are often NOT vegan - would you have known that? Our CRADLE TO CRADLE CERTIFIED® GOLD products are - unlike many other textiles - vegan. This is because textiles in general are rarely completely free of materials of animal origin, as animal fats, uric acid, etc. are often added to them as processing aids in the course of production. Since such processing aids usually do not have to be declared, the impression is created that textiles are vegan. In our Cradle to Cradle products, we do not use any materials of animal origin and have thus been awarded the international V-Label. (Photographer: Philipp Kahrer

Global Recycle Standard

The Global Recycle Standard (GRS) is an international, voluntary, fully-fledged product standard that specifies requirements for the independent certification of recycled materials, the product chain, social and environmental practices and chemical restrictions. The recycled content of products must be at least 20%, while the logo may only be used if the recycled content of the article is at least 50%.
The aim of the inspection is not only the requirements for a correct specification of used substances and materials, at the same time the focus is put on correct working conditions under social fair standards.

Durability, an ecological home textile production and the consideration of social fair standards - this is what we are committed to: The GRS award not only shows that we are on the right track, but that our efforts, especially in the area of social fairness and our standards in environmentally friendly production do not go unseen.
