In addition, during the period in question, the business sought to develop a range of improved premium fabrications. One example was for the use in the healthcare sector to provide added comfort, hygiene and durability to healthcare personal wearing it.
The company consistently seeks to develop new textiles, fabrics, materials and production processes. Trialing and developing various methods of sustainable manufacturing and adapting to changes in legislation or industry requirements and ensuring the highest quality and demands of the fashion industry.
