Established in 1961, HATA TEX. is headquartered in Ishikawa Prefecture, Japan's largest production region of synthetic filament yarn woven fabrics.
In the synthetic fabrics industry, production is typically divided between yarns and woven fabrics. However, HATA TEX. operates an integrated mill, performing everything from twisting to weaving, producing highly original fabrics.
The fresh and unique textiles that excite global markets is made possible by the company's innovative corporate culture that combines time-tested techniques with the latest technologies.
The planning and manufacturing of HATA TEX.'s functional fabrics incorporate creative techniques derived from the twisting process. New techniques are opening doors to new markets.
It all starts with twisting
Twisting the fibers.
Rather than simply twisting the fibers, several different types of fibers are combined to add a unique touch to the final product. Unspun yarns are gaining popularity, but performing this process makes a significant difference in the products' characteristics. The secret to HATA TEX.'s quality is in the experience level and techniques of the craftsmen.
High craftsmanship is necessary to warp synthetic fibers
The slightest variance in tension leads to inconsistent dyeing or scratching. Unlike cotton or wool, synthetic fibers are unforgiving.
These seemingly ordinary warping yarns are full of ingenuity to control tension.
A green disk is attached to each end of the warp yarn (each yarn).
A needle-like tensioner is attached to each disk and is set to ensure that each yarn is delivered to the beam with uniform strength, thus preventing inconsistencies. This trick was the result of a culmination of years of experience.
