Innovation

Our approach

Our fabrics help people spend time at work, at home, outdoors and with others. We want to ensure that people experience the very best of these spaces, when it comes to both aesthetics and materials. People, needs and the way in which environments are used change over time. This is what drives our research and the continuous innovation that combines materials, creates new colours and weaves and brings ideas to life. We want to continue developing competitive solutions that release the material’s huge potential while protecting the environment.
In the early Sixties we introduced technical fabric to the sea market and revolutionised the industry. We were the first to experiment by combining different yarns and vinyl polymer thus creating entirely new products that are exceptionally pleasant to touch. We were also the first company to introduce 100% recyclable fabrics, after years of research and hard work.
In 2011, we were the first to present tubular knit fabric and flat mesh fabric at Maison & Objet in Paris in partnership with Jaquiò and Moroso.
