Following World War II, Italy emerged as a major fashion hub. Italian fashion designers came to understand the need for ready-to-wear, non-couture fashion, so designers focused on creating luxurious apparel grounded with a sense of reality. From then on Italian fashion houses blossomed and became the foundation for the powerhouse that the Italian fashion industry has grown into today.
In a changing world, Italian fashion has stuck to its roots. That’s why it is desired by so many today. Italy is known for striving for perfection and high-quality in all areas from fashion to food. This is why the “Made in Italy” label carries so much weight. As a consumer, people see a product that is Italian-made and instinctively associate it as being quality and a worthwhile purchase.
We have worked with our Italian factory for over 10 years so what better way to bring a touch of luxury to our range. Our factory manages every stage of production, with the capacity of producing 7 millions pairs per year. The constant control of the production chain allows us to monitor the work at all times and guarantees the highest quality of products.
The yarn passed through a machine and is transformed into a semi-finished product, which we call ‘tube’. The tights are made one leg at a time and then assembled at a later stage. To guarantee the highest quality without any defects our operators carefully check each machine during processing.
Toe Stitching and Assembly
Immediately after knitting an operator performs a further check to verify that there are no defects in the tubes. They are then sewn at the toe by a special machine that first turns the tube over to make the seam internally then joins together. During assembly the tubes are cut in specific point and then sewn manually.
Ironing takes place in the middle of the production process to ensure uniform dyeing. During the fastening, the operators put the assembled tights on special metal plates that iron by heating up with steam.
Prep for washing and Dyeing
At this stage the operators prepare the tights to be dyed by placing them in special steel containers, each container is then placed in another larger container and transferred to the dyeing department. The containers are then inserted into the dyeing machines. The colour is prepared in the laboratory and inserted into he machines. The dyeing plant uses a recirculation of the same water that is always clean and purified, which guarantees a homogeneous, antibacterial and eco-sustainable dye.
After dyeing the tights must be dried. To do this they are placed in a large centrifuge which drains most of the water but still remains most. They are then taken to the departed called the ‘oven’ where the operators place them on a special machines that dries them slowly.
Quality Control and Packing
At this stage the tights are ready to be worn. They are brought into the Quality Control department where the operators manually check each individual pair and pack every single pair ready for store.
