Svenmill: Building a Legacy in Fabrics & Yarns
When it comes to fabric production, the experts from Svenmill have developed a wonderful reputation for creating beautiful yarns, fabrics, and more. The team is extremely proud of a lasting legacy that spans over 60 years. They continue to serve long-standing customers from around the globe and supply fabrics to the decor and furnishing trade for both curtaining and upholstery.
The Svenmill factory in Cape Town, South Africa employs some 250 committed staff. They are split across production activities in weaving, knitting, and stitching.
The start in Decor was just that…a start. Svenmill continues to develop a technical fabrics division. Most recently, they further added a focused apparel range including circular knitted fabrics.
In 2013, they adopted a sustainable production initiative. After measuring the company’s carbon footprint, Svenmill made the decision to better manage its impact on the planet. This is done by reducing, reusing and recycling waste. Furthermore, they now offer fabrics made exclusively from recovered plastic bottles.
“We are always learning and delight in solving customer challenges. We draw on our expertise in yarns, fabrics, and increasingly chemistry, to produce and supply consistent and reliable products.”
The fabrics produced in the Technical division, range in widths from 10cm up to 700cm with weights from 38gsm to 850gsm.
There are four divisions including Decor, Technical, Apparel and Paul Steiger (CMT/sewing). These divisions offer a full range of weaving, knitting and stitching services to select customers in the following sectors:
- Home decor: curtaining, upholstery, bedding and tableware / napery using jacquard and dobby weaving, as well as lace jacquard knitting techniques
- Technical textiles: flame retardant fabrics (inherent and treated), filtration, high tenacity mesh, workwear, high visibility fabrics
- Apparel textiles: single jersey, cotton stretch, linen and linen blends
- Through the stitching plant, Paul Steiger, the company further adds value by converting these fabrics into ready-made curtains, scatter cushions, bedding, table runners, tote bags and others.
