About us

The Roots:

Nursery in Hamburg, established in 1920 by Agnes and Otto Fleischhauer

The Idea:

Werner Fleischhauer found a material in the early 1950´s to replace raffia and developed it to a successful sealing for T-budding and grafting, called Okulette and later in the 1960´s Flexiband. The great part about Okulette and Flexiband is that it is Biodegradable.


The Fleischhauer OSV GmbH company, established in 1958. Manufacturer of natural rubber grafting and budding material, rubber sheets and sealings.
