Items made of plastic are ranged from chairs and tables to trays and bowls for snacks. In the Retro & Design webshop you can find a colorful variety of plastic designs. 

Emsa is a typical brand name that was spreading fame in the early 70s for its various well known colored household products. Emsa was originally founded on April 1st, 1949 by Franz Wulf as "Franz Wulf & Co. Plastic Fabrik" in Greven. A small drop-catcher for the coffee machine, made of plastic and in the form of a butterfly, was the first article of the company. After this they began the production of several different kitchen supplies. On October 1st 1956 the company from the city of Greven in Germany moved to the larger premises in Emsdetten. More objects were added to the range. Against the background of their location in Emsdetten and its main river Ems the company's name was changed on December 29th, 1964 into "Emsa". With a little bit of imagination you could see the German Emsa as an European counterpart of the American Tupperware
