OUR PHILOSOPHY

“Quality exists when the price is long forgotten.”

We listen very carefully to our customers and develop an individual proposal for each project. This way our experience and our skills are of full benefit to the customer. A good price-performance ratio, combined with the selection of suitable materials, enables us to deliver optimal craftsmanship that lasts for many years and gives pleasure. The design and the fine tuning of colours and shapes are an important element for us. We avoid using plastics and work ecologically and sustainably.

HIGHEST QUALITY FROM ONE SOURCE.

Our rarities of wallpaper art have been inspiring many cultivated people for over 50 years. Historical patterns serve us as a model to get these hand printed wallpapers as a replica. When leafing through our website you will be able to see surprising, beautiful patterns from three centuries. Our collection includes over 700 wallpapers and borders. They are printed colour by colour on top of each other with high quality materials, on hand-painted ground. The charm of these products is revealed through the eye of the beholder.  This has nothing to do with mass-produced goods from the hardware store.

HISTORY

OUR HISTORY

The Julius Hembus company was founded in 1894 and already helped build the Kronberg Friedrichshof Castle. The company can look back on a long tradition in the field of restoration.

To mention are for example: Frankfurt Cathedral, Old Opera House Frankfurt, Kurhaus Wiesbaden, Former Villa Mumm, Gutleutkaserne, Kronberg Castle, Kronberg Battle Church, St. Johannis Church in Kronberg.

It was the founder of the company, Jakob Hembus, who had been commissioned by the Empress to restore Kronberg Castle and in particular the castle chapel, where, with a lucky hand, he found and uncovered the sacred carrion painting from 1300 under a layer of paint. After Jakob Hembus, the brothers Paul and Julius Hembus took care of the company’s fortunes together.

After Paul Hembus’ early death, Julius Hembus continued to run the company on his own until his own death in 1983. Julius Hembus was awarded honorary citizenship of the city of Kronberg, the Badge of Honour of the city of Frankfurt and the Golden Dürer Plaque of the German Painters’ Trade for his services to the cultural scene. Until 31.12.1999 the company was managed by Hans Hembus.

On January 1, 2000, Julius Hembus Maler- und Stuckwerkstätten GmbH was taken over by the Höchster Familienbetrieb Moosbrugger.
