Quality report on each gray piece

Many different basic types of fabrics are produced in big quantities and stored to be assorted in colors, prints and different finishing at a later date accordingly to market requests. Through this process, many issues are highlighted only too late, when there is no time to resolve them.

To avoid all this we have specialized in gray fabrics inspection, so that our customers receive a full report on the status of each gray piece, while we can hold on to them to proceed with all mending eventually needed before proceeding with dyeing and/or printing.

Processes for which we have developed a warehousing logistic to supply our customers, especially in the upholstery fabrics trade, but not them solely, with the service of splitting lots accordingly to their many different assortments and follow up inspection during all the different finishing steps, up to the issuing of the final quality certification.
