Functional Textiles

Although we have more than 130 years of experience in the development of textile fibers, we constantly ask ourselves how we can improve our products and how best we can meet the expectations of our customers.

From being the first to create highly popular wash-and-wear shirts to our heat-training ladies garments, our attunement to daily life has led to great achievements.

We have accumulated an extensive knowledge of all kinds of fibers, from cotton to wool, rayon, nylon, polyester and acrylics.

This expertise has allowed us to make many different combinations of material, and to regularly develop new and better functioning textiles over the years.

We have devised comfort evaluation technology that can quantify that illusive sense of discomfort that can so often only be expressed in vague terms. This technology is used to study such factors as temperature and moisture inside clothing, and the data obtained is used to design and produce extremely comfortable textiles. TOM III and the newer version, SAM, are mannequins that provide very realistic simulations of sweat production to evaluate the dampness generated by the human body inside a garment made of a particular fabric. This kind of expertise has allowed us to combine different materials in the development of new functional textiles over the years.
