Our activities are organised so that we can handle large quantities of part-finished material in the
shortest possible time. There are five stages in the line dedicated to bleaching. Apart from the first
and the last (the creation of huge rolls through an area used for opening bales, stitching cloth and
drying, which is done by the tentering
machine),the other three stages occur in continuous bleaching lines.
The first area is where the fabric is "boiled off", followed by the bleaching and lastly the blueing.
This is all done on a 360cm width of cloth. The whole production goes on for twenty four hours each day in a
continuous cycle. The rest of the work is done in the industrial premises at Finissaggio
Pigni. The fabric is printed here, then it undergoes a series of finishings to enhance it,
such as starching, chintzing, calendering, raising, feather finish and flame retardant treatment.
All this work is done by modern machinery such as a tentering machine, calenders with teflon rollers and raising machines,
for a maximum width of 330 useable cm of cloth.
