Our Philosophy

Quality, Innovation, Respect for the environment


Quality: product and service.
We can offer a 100% guarantee to our quality, because our small size enabled us to impart this value to each member of our team.
Putting this value into practice has been our daily commitment for over 25 years.


Thanks to our constant research for competitive materials and suppliers, and our investments in human resources, we can offer all classes of dyestuffs, and a full package of auxiliaries suitable for dyeing and finishing any fibre.
The careful listening to the needs of the market allows us to “tune” our offer to make it more competitive and cutting edge.


Quality also means respecting the environment.
That’s why we stopped stocking mutagenic products, we cut down disposal of dyestuffs in the environment with the best kinds of de-dusting agents, we increased the degree of fixation by carefully choosing dyestuffs in order to reduce the need for waste water treatment and, finally, we developed new compounds and blends, and innovative dyeing processes to protect quality in textile fibres and in the lives of people who wear them.
