  • CAD

    We have been making high pile jacquard fabrics for over 20 years and have in-house CAD (computer-aided design) capabilities to make your JPEG into a custom designed high pile fabric.

  • Lab / Testing

    Although we are not a certified testing lab, we do many ASTM and AATCC tests on our fabrics per our customers’ requests. If a development or production fabric requires a certified test, we will often “pre-test” here in our own lab so that we and the customer can be comfortable that the fabric will pass at a certified lab. We offer the following testing: wash testing, colorfastness to wash, crock testing, abrasion testing, vertical burn, water repellency, tear strength, ball burst, thermal shrinkage as well a paint roller pick up and release

  • Padding / Treatments / Coatings

    Anti-microbial, DWR, anti-pilling FR treatments and coatings to provide stability are some of the services we can provide. We have the ability to heat-set fabrics or apply very heavy coatings depending upon your end use and specifications.
