History of ribbon-making factory in Dobruška is dated back to the late 19th century. At this time in the former Austro - Hungary, the production of hats was highly developed, but the hat ribbons were only imported mainly from Germany.

The former Mayor of Dobruška, Dr.Josef Archleb consistently pushed for the development of industry in the city. On the basis of his activities in 1896 was established by Mr. FROWEIN of the Rhineland a small factory for the manufacture of ribbons in Dobruška.

The first ribbons were produced on 10 shuttle ribbon looms and the first products were men's hat bands of natural silk for the company Hückel in New Jičín.

Since the ribbon products were sold well and the company prospered, it iniciated the creation of an additional ribbon-making companies in Dobruška, which began producing in the spring of 1903. In 1911, two competing companies were joined and the joint-stock company United ribbons factories was founded. The significant development of the company occurred in the period of the First Republic, when the production areas were expanded and production capacity significantly increased.

In 1990, it came to the return of company independence when state enterprise was appointed and on the date of 1 January 1994 the joint stock company STUHA was founded.
