About Technical Textiles

Technical textiles and other textiles, such as clothing and fashion, differ significantly. Clothing and fashion fabrics have aesthetic look and form as the key parameters, whereas technical textiles are fabrics that have specific functional properties for demanding environments. Technical fabrics are carefully designed and engineered for the specific application to give confidence, that the properties required will be delivered consistently.


Our Processes

We have fine-tuned a number of processes for creating scrims, thanks to our technical expertise and development capabilities. From the beginning of the process up to the final finishing details, we have our routines down to a science.
