Textile weaving

We manufacture rigid or elastic ribbons, in twill, taffeta or satin weaves from 4 to 200 mm, in natural or synthetic materials.

We take advantage of a vast range of colors to create plain or multicolored braids, in phase with your textile project.

We have mastered the jacquard ribbon technique, to weave motifs or logos directly into the heart of the ribbon.
