Does anyone have further information on the cloth factory owned by the Stehli family in 1321. It was latter known as Stehli Silk with factories in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and Obfelden, Switzerland. In 1958 it was transformed into joint-stock Stehli Seiden Soc, still in possession of the fam. early twenty-first century. The production of silk fabrics in Switzerland ceased in 1977.
