Benefits of airjet weaving technology, namely mass productivity and reduced employment costs, are evident and commonly recognized. But, as it does in every field, quality matters. And here lies the reason why Itema defines its weaving machines as tools for its Customers, where “the only thing more amazing than our technology is what weavers do with it” to communicate that, if performances are important, what matters the most and finally gives a competitive advantage to fabric manufacturers is precisely the fabric quality, a concept that refers to no defects, hand-feel and appearance of the fabric itself. Itema has an unmatched superiority in the market in providing the best textile versatility and superior fabric quality, due to its traditional approach of developing advanced and unique weft transfer systems with a life-long dedication and shared passion for textiles.
