  • Project Management (Cut and Sew)

    There are times when customers are looking for “the whole package.” We can produce a fabric, have it laminated, cut and sewn, and even packaged (depending on your needs). Between our own in house capabilities and our relationships with other laminators and cut and sew houses, we would love the opportunity to find the most efficient and cost effective way to complete your project or product.

  • Shearing

    Equipped with two complete shear lines, we have the ability to shear just about anything from very high-pile paint rollers and buffing pads to very low-pile applications that require precision. We have experience shearing many different fibers from wool and polyester fabrics to cut resistant blends featuring Nomex®, Kevlar® or Celliant®.

  • Custom Fabric Design

    With over 50 years of design experience, our team is here to help you bring your ideas to life. We use our experience along with your ideas and specifications to design a fabric to meet your needs. Whether aesthetics or performance is the priority, we can do it all.
