  • 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

  • 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.

  • Picking / Blending

    Whether we are blending many bales of the same fiber to open and emulsify them or the intimate blending of many different fibers for the ultimate performance blend, our opening/blending department has both sample and large production capabilities allowing us to get consistently homogenous blends.
