RESEARCH & INNOVATION

Research and innovation at every stage of the development of a fabric.

The collections that the Albini Group offers to the market are the result of a long process of research and development. Thanks to the complete control of the supply chain, every single phase of the creation of a fabric becomes an opportunity to innovate.

Quality starts with raw materials, which is why Albini Group is constantly looking for the best, thanks to a dedicated team that deals with the research and selection of the most beautiful cottons and linens in the world. An expert from the Albini Group travels all over the world to find, develop or cultivate the right raw material for each fabric.

Creativity, research, experimentation and an important spinning know-how allow us to create fabrics with special yarns, such as mélange, mouliné, buttoned, bouclé and chenille. We develop particularly innovative blends with noble yarns such as silk, linen, wool and cashmere.

ICA (I Cotoni di Albini S.p.A.), the Albini Group company specialized in the production and sale of high-end yarns made with natural, noble and sustainable fibers, allows us to obtain the direct and complete control over the production chain, from raw materials to fabrics.

Each dyeing recipe is studied internally, enabling the development of new techniques and effects, such as délavé and two-tone dyes.

State-of-the-art machinery and cutting-edge technologies allow us to achieve excellent coloring performance and significant savings in energy resources, paying great attention to the environmental impact.

Each Albini Group collection features innovative fabrics, thanks to the use of innovative raw materials, new weaving techniques and designs, special and fine yarns.

Thanks to the important know-how of the people and state-of-the-art looms, it is possible to create precious fabrics: all weaving machines are constantly renewed to keep the technology always at the state of the art.

During the finishing, each fabric is embellished in touch and appearance.

Albini Group carries out this phase in its own factory in Italy, where, thanks to the perfect process control and the use of exclusively designed equipment, it creates innovative and high-performance finishing.

Constant control along the entire production chain allows Albini to verify the outcome of the innovations introduced in every single phase. A timely correction of the initial requirements is essential to make the process definitive, optimise product performance and achieve the highest quality in each step of the fabric creation.
