Our Process

Fabric Analysis and Knitting

Have a sample of what you want?

Our knowledgeable inhouse staff will take your sample and deknit it to determine construction. From there we can work with you to determine any potential improvements that can be made to enhance the performance of the fabric.

No Sample? – No problem. We can work with you to develop a fabric construction that will meet your needs!
