A GOOD OUTCOME IN WASHING DEPENDS ON 4 VARIABLES: EQUIPMENT, WATER, CHEMICALS AND THE RECIPE.
Our treatment facility in Texim is fitted with state-of-the-art fully electronic washing and drying machinery. Our washing machines are able to decide themselves automatically the correct amount of water and chemicals to be used according to the exact weight of the garments, therefore deviance is very limited. Our tumble dryers have special systems that dry garments while maintaining their volumes. And furthermore, we also have dry cleaning equipment that helps us obtain handfeels not possible with washing machines.
Second important element of washing knitwear is water itself. That means the water used in washing machines has to be filtered and always kept in a stable pH and softness level for the chemicals to perform in the desired way. This is exactly how we treat the water we use in our washing process.
Then comes the chemicals used. In Texim, we only use chemicals from world-known nominated suppliers, always fresh and sustainable. Maintaining consistency of chemicals assures a durable performance on washing process.
Final element of the process is the recipes used. Considering tremendous types of different yarns used in knitwear production, recipes are the key elements in achieving the desired handfeel on the garment. For this purpose, we use recipes that come from our joint venture partner treatment laboratory in Italy. That means, we not only use Italian yarns but also Italian know-how, with Turkey's competitive costs.
