Testfabrics, Inc. is an established textile manufacturer, converter and textile resource servicing the textile needs of a variety of 'special interest textile consumer groups' worldwide.
We are 'in the textile business' on behalf of our many different customers. As is the case with most industries, unless you are an active, daily participant in them, it is often very difficult to get attention to your particular needs. Our client groups have special textile needs but individually they do not have the demand level to attract the attention of the textile industry. Testfabrics, Inc. exists to service their needs for textile goods and services.
In the 1930's and 1940's, our initial clients were comprised of the manufacturing chemical suppliers to the textile industry, the producers of textile dyes and processing chemicals. This group was followed closely by the developing surfactant and synthetic detergent industries. They needed consistent, reliable textile materials for their laboratory evaluations for quality assurance of their production, for development of new products and for demonstrating their products' capabilities to their customers. Individually, their needs were insufficient in volume to interest any supplier willing to comprehend their special needs. Collectively however, there was justification to pay attention to their needs and to develop a means to satisfy them.
The founder of Testfabrics, Inc., Werner Klaas, was in a position to listen to these potential clients and to act on their behalf. His basic business instinct for servicing his clients' needs developed over years of constant care and attention and attracted other related groups with their own special needs for textile products and services.
The same business instinct remains at the core of our business today.
Testfabrics, Inc. maintains an inventory of textile yarns
and fabrics specifically prepared for dyeing (the fabrics
are not loom state or raw, they are de sized, scoured, bleached
where applicable and with no resin finishes unless specified).
They can be dyed, painted, printed and made to be colorfast
using proper technique and reputable textile dyes and paints.
These fabrics are available in small order quantities and
have found tremendous application in textile design and
other related outlets.
No guarantee can be given that yarns, skeins and fabrics,
may not be contaminated by foreign fly.
All fabrics are quoted and
sold by METER.
(A meter is 3.37 inches more than a yard)
Prices and charges are quoted in US
Dollars and are subject to change
without any notice.
To insure consistent supply of these
necessary materials, Testfabrics, Inc. maintains a staff
of trained textile professionals and a manufacturing facility
dedicated solely to the consistent production (for more
than 50 years) of textile test materials. We are the only
supplier with this capacity and it is solely to insure the
constant flow and quality of our products. The demand for
such materials is insufficient to warrant the attention
of any contract producer and without the constant vigilance
of dedicated employees, the consistency and reliability
of our products would be lost.
We have well equipped laboratory to perform tests on our
products to ensure that when you receive your order you
can proceed with your work without worrying about the quality
of the test materials you are using.
From more then 60+ years Testfabrics, Inc. is has strived
to fulfill the needs of the worldwide textile and related
industry. To better assist our international customers our
products are available in 35+ countries around the globe
through our worldwide agents.
