We are always looking for innovative solutions. This is why our team of technicians and engineers are continuously working on new technologies for our textiles. With numerous new developments, we have already been able to register many patents. This, in combination with the high aesthetic demands of our fabrics, which we put into effect in addition to the technical components of our textiles, makes us the leading brand of sun protection and maritime fabrics.
