Texon Italia: technology and innovation also ‘made-to-measure’
Specialised since 1947 in the development of cellulose materials for footwear, over the years, the company located in Cassolnovo (PV) has expanded its range of product offerings, proposing itself as an innovative and reliable partner also in the sports segment, with the ability to develop personalized solutions based on the specific needs of the customer.
Texon’s research into the development of cellulose materials for insoles first began way back in the Thirties, leading to its launching onto the worldwide market in 1947, with the subsequent development of products that are the fruit of skilled workmanship, thanks to the close and daily interactions of the company’s technicians with the world of footwear production. Halfway through the 60’s, Texon Italia was founded for the distribution in Italy of cellulose materials produced in the company’s facilities in Germany. However, it is only in 1983 – in the wake of the extraordinary developments characterising the Italian footwear market – that the Texon Group decided to set up a facility of cellulose production in the Marches. Over the years, Texon Italia has expanded its product range to include general components for footwear, while cementing collaborative and exclusive distribution agreements with foreign manufacturers of materials for footwear. Since 2007, the company has been headed by an Italian management team, acting as the exclusive licensee for Texon in the Italian territory.
The brand’s reputation has been skilfully constructed over time, while identifying and satisfying all the new requirements that arrive each season from the market. Thus, also in the segment of sports shoes, Texon Italia has developed a series of materials capable of replying to the growing demand for increasingly lightweight, resistant, and high-performance fabrics, which can substitute leather and microfibre in the construction of the upper. The company has also developed innovative and often personalised solutions in accordance with the specific needs of clientele, allowing it to stand out among competitors in the sector.
The range of articles proposed is quite vast and includes fabrics for uppers made using both the jacquard technique and other techniques; mono fabrics and dual elastics, with high resistance to tearing and lacerations; linings with a state-of-the-art PCF-free membrane, which are waterproof and highly breathable; and fabrics made using fibres and highly resistant yarns.
The advantages for users are multiple, like, for example, in the case of whole uppers made using the jacquard technique, along with the possibility of cutting the shape, with just one line of stitching on the heel and then the application of a heel counter, toe-cap, and sole: and the shoe is done!
