WEGAL & TRICOTEL utilises an exacting monitoring system for every single production stage, starting from yarn choice, knitting procedure, dyeing and finishing; at the end, every single meter is strictly inspected before delivery to the client.
Moreover, new articles are tested for all quality parameters, e.g. colour analysis with spectrophotometry, dimensional stability, colour fastness and elongation features.
WEGAL & TRICOTEL was one of the first elastic fabric producers to detain a certificate of full compliance to the OEKO-TEX STANDARD 100 (RDP N. 953035 O).
A specialised team studies market developments and future colour trends. From this research new articles and colour cards are created to inspire our client’s stylists in the preparation of their own collections.
The continuous research and experimentation of new yarns, new structures and new finishings allow WEGAL & TRICOTEL to create innovative fabrics, to anticipate fashion and market trends.
Moreover, the technical department actively cooperates with clients in order to develop new fabrics, particularly studied to meet specific requirements. From this cooperation specific fabrics are created and offered in exclusivity for that particular client for an agreed period.
A fully equipped laboratory with dedicated knitting machines and small dyeing autoclaves for testing allow to produce small pilot productions, to verify the experimental input from technical department, in order to guarantee the commercialisation of new fabrics only after carrying out all suitable quality controls.
