Arta Tekstil Ltd., a Turkish finished woven fabrics manufacturer and an accredited supplier to leading European retail brands such as Marks & Spencer, H&M, INDITEX and Top Shop, is seeing a programme of continuous investment over the past three years now paying solid dividends.

The company’s recent investment programme has seen the installation of a new European-built Monforts Thermex Econtrol dyeing system as well as two ten-chamber Monfongs Montex stenters and a Monfongs sanforising unit, all of which have been installed and commissioned by Istanbul-based Neotek.

Arta Tekstil specialises in cotton, polyester, viscose and lyocell finished fabrics and their blends, with varying levels of controlled stretch, in advanced weaves including twills, poplins, canvas, sateen, double-face as and dobby qualities.

“In combination with the new Monforts Thermex system, this provides us with a far wider range of fabric finishes and surface effects that we can achieve compared to our competitors,” saidArta plant manager Mehmet Kaan Kalipçioĝlu.

The latest Monforts and Monfongs installations have resulted in a production increase of over 50%, with a marked improvement in quality and reproducibility.

What’s been particularly impressive is the total control we now have over parameters such as humidity,” he said.

The company’s Thermex Econtrol range meanwhile has a working width of 1.8 metres and allows the single-bath continuous dyeing of cotton and polyester fabrics with selected reactive and dispersion dyestuffs, as well as cotton-polyester blends to be processed without reductive intermediate cleaning, eliminating the need for a steamer.

Our dyeing methods include reactive, sulphur, indanthren, indigo, pigment and disperse dyeing, along with specially-developed in-house techniques and special glitter, PU, pearl and other blade coatings. Through combinations of all of these techniques, we are able to provide our customers with highly-differentiated fabrics,” he said.
