TRADITION, RESEARCH AND DESIGN

Serates is a shuttle fabric factory founded in Como's textile district in 1977.

The attention to design and research into materials distinguish the company, which was first established as a weaving mill specialising in producing technical fabrics, and today is an international reference point for sportswear and luxury clothing brands.

EXPERIENCE

Serates has over 40 years' experience in the textile sector, which means an immense historical archive of fabrics to draw upon and solid expertise that comes from constantly improving methods and techniques to achieve the highest levels of quality.

All of this is embedded in our history and is the value we offer our customers.

RESEARCH

Studying materials is in our DNA.

The process of researching them perfects and enriches our knowledge of textile fibres, weaves, the chemistry of dyeing and finishing techniques.

Our fabric collection comes first from study and then from mixing all these elements.

INNOVATION AND CRAFTSMANSHIP

The factory is equipped with the latest generation of technological machinery, thanks to investments made from the beginning of the new millennium to the present day.

But that's not all. Our equipment is a mix of modern technology and old Italian machinery built in the 1970s when Como's textile district was developing.

No longer on the market today, these machines are highly valuable in our production process and allow us to accomplish unique products and craftsmanship.

AN AGILE ORGANISATION

Serates does not take inspiration from business school books but has a simple organisational model, typical of small Italian companies founded in the 1970s, which we have preserved and perfected to maximise our industrial agility and effectiveness.

We work in an environment of widespread specialisation, where the work is in the hands of experts and operators who each contribute at the stage where their skills are required.

COMMITMENT TO THE ENVIRONMENT

Serates uses electricity that comes 100% from renewable sources (sun, wind and water).

In the offices, thanks to the LifeGate project Impatto Zero®, we compensate for the carbon dioxide emissions generated by managing our electricity supply, contributing to the creation and protection of growing forests.

Production takes place entirely within a 10 km radius, which minimises CO2 emissions from transport.
