Technical Textiles

GS4C is working with selected weavers to complete a portfolio of technical textiles entirely made in Filava. Fabric weight will span from 200gsm to 1200gsm and can have different weaving pattern according to the final application. Balanced (same yarn/cm in both warp and weft direction) and unbalanced (different yarns/cm between warp and weft) textiles with tight construction have been successfully produced in plain woven style (consequently looser woven styles such as twill, harness or panama are fully feasible and indirectly validated). Plain textiles have been tested as sustainable and fire resistent alternative for technical fabric for special garments, sailcloth and composite lay-up applications.
