Reprocessing, sustainability and design are the principles that guide our work. We manage and control the production entire process, from a sweater transformed into yarn and then into fabric. Our passion is behind each step of the manufacturing cycle: study of new trends in design and fashion, analysis and control of all stages, and the realization of our fabrics.

Our yarn is taken from wool and cashmere sweaters, which are selected, shredded and then processed. From here we create the threads that tie and weave together a circular process, which is repeated in every production cycle.

  • Design of the fabrics. We project and produce our fabrics, relying on our experience, study of fashion trends and collaboration with our customers. We create textiles which are unique in terms of composition, design and color.
  • Creation of puffs (fiber wads). We cut small pieces of fabric to create puffs (fiber wads) wich are necessary to make resistance and color tests. We obtain unique, well-defined colors by means of personal mixes of different colored fibers.
  • Preparation of raw materials. We collaborate with specialists who collect used wool and cashmere sweaters, sort them by type and color, cut out the labels, zippers and seams, and eliminate all synthetic materials.
  • Formation of material lots. We carry out the first phase of quality control to assure that selected materials do not contain synthetic elements. Fabric collected from this selection is then further divided by material and color into “lots”.
First quality Check
  • Tearing. We select the materials and convert them into fibers by means of mechanical instruments with metallic teeth which open and unravel the fabric. This technology breaks the fabric into wads, which we then carefully analyze in a second quality control phase. The wads are then brought to the next production stage only if they are supple and resistant, enabling us to obtain a product which is soft and extremely durable.
Second quality Check
  • Spinning. The fiber wads are transformed into yarn by means of a series of twisting and processing operations. In this stage as well we carefully control the yarn, which must be of the highest quality and have a regular structure and minimal pilling. If the wads pass this control phase, they are then transformed into reels of thread.
Third quality Check
  • Winding. The yarn is now transferred to a cone-shaped bobbin of roughly 2 kg. We check and double-check the bobbins to eliminate impurities, such that we are able to produce thread which is unblemished, resistant and linear.
Fourth quality Check
  • Elimination of defects. We again check the thread, subjecting it to resistance tests to assure its conformity to the required technical characteristics.
Fifth quality Check
  • Warping. The yarn is positioned on beams and prepared to be placed in the loom. During this stage we check that the yarn has reached optimal tension so as to assure homogeneity in the entire thread bundle. Small variations in tension in the bundle can create irremediable damage during weaving. Our strict controls guarantee the realization of high-quality products.
Sixth quality Check
  • Weaving. The threads that pass the six quality controls phases described above are placed on the beams and inserted behind the loom to form the warp. The warp is then crossed with another thread, the weft. The continuous weaving action produces an orthogonal- or shuttle-woven fabric. 
  • Seventh quality control phase. The fabric is placed on a device called a “mirror”, which is used to check the overall quality of the raw fabric.
Seventh quality Check
  • Finishing. At the end of the process, we perform the refining operations. These consist of a series of treatments aimed at improving the appearance, handling and properties of the fabric in accordance with its destined use for the customer. 
  • Final quality control phase. The finished product is once again checked before being prepared for delivery.

Types of finishing for our products:

Polished fabric: operation performed with particular rollers which make use of heat, friction or polishing products.

Gauze fabric: by raising the surface layer with moving curved pins, greater thermal insulation of the fabric is obtained.

Embossed fabric: incision of a design in the fabric which creates a surface relief.

Printed fabric: the fabric is imprinted with various coloring agents which penetrate the fibers and become set.

Coupled fabric: two pieces of fabric are joined by gluing or sewing such that they can be used as the front and reverse sides of a clothing item.

Pressed fabric: fabric is passed through two cylinders, one of which is heated.

Trimmed fabric: fabric surface is cut with special cutting tools.

Fulled fabric: fabric is subjected to heat together with mechanical rubbing and compressing actions, which modify its structure and compactness as well as the inward curve of the wool.

Brushed fabric: fabric is passed through rollers, which raise its surface hairs.

Sanforized fabric: fabric is subjected to special treatment to prevent alterations in the dimensions of the warp and weft.

Delustered fabric: vapor eliminates the shiny appearance of the fabric, stabilizing its surface and dimensions.

Each of our products undergoes eight quality control phases to guarantee its suitability for the customer’s requirements.
