Weaving

Able to provide a quick, reliable and flexible response to the market demands and operating in a constant balance between innovation and tradition, our Weaving department produces fabrics with a high technical and creative complexity.

At Riopele, the Weaving process is divided into three different stages – Preparation, Weaving and Preliminary Quality Control.

During the Preparation stage, when the warp and weft are prepared, we proceed with the warping of the yarns - using both sectional and direct warping machines -, starching and all the drawing-in operations. We also have four highly technologically advanced sample warping machines, which will quickly develop blankets and samples for our customers.

The Weaving area has 187 weaving machines (62 air-jet looms and 124 rapier looms) distributed across 10 physically isolated units to avoid contamination problems.

Finally, the whole product is examined in the Preliminary Quality Control area.
