Piel SA products receive Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certificate

From classic traditional styles to brand-new trends, Piel S.A. is one of the leading integrated companies in the Spanish textile sector producing household textiles and upholstery covers for homes designed totally to individual tastes. The company has developed an additional focus with its development and production of innovative technical textiles as well as the production of high-quality clothing textiles. The entire range of Piel S.A. is certified according to the human/ecology requirements of the OEKO-TEX Standard 100.

The Valencia region progressed in the 15th century through its silk and textile production to become one of Europe's trading centres and flourished for many years. Even today many of Spain's important textile companies are located in this region with its traditionally favourable conditions for textile production. Piel S.A. was established here in 1976 and has focused on customer-orientation as explained by Vicente J. Sanchís, General Manager.

“Our challenge as a European textile company in order to remain competitive over the long term is to always remain flexible and develop a feeling for the needs of our customers, to exploit new markets and then implement these modifications accordingly in the company.” And in line with this the company based at Agullent, and with its approximately 60 employees, has adapted its product and activity portfolio to sales markets and successfully carved out some niche markets for itself. Through its company-owned worldwide sales and distribution network in more than 70 countries, the textile company is in a position to meet market developments and individual customer requests extremely flexibly.

Piel S.A. has a very strong presence in the market for household textiles such as bed linen, bedspreads, padded bed throws, table cloths and, plaids. An extensive range of upholstery covers of all types in many different types of materials, textures and designs rounds off the company's portfolio. Piel S.A. also produces textiles for clothing and produces high-quality, top fashion designer pieces according to specific customer requests.

All areas of the company are vertically integrated which means that all phases are carried out under the company's control - from the very selection of raw materials through the processing in the company's own weaving mill to garment manufacture and packaging. Four in-house design teams are continuously working on new creations and individual customer solutions based on new fashion trends.

In the growth market of technical textiles, Piel S.A.focuses on highly-efficient textile solutions which combine functionality, comfort, safety aspects and – where necessary - decorative aspects. In this area the company mainly supplies leading automotive producers (interior fittings), shoes (mesh materials), outdoor products (tents, rucksacks) and mattresses. In the non-woven sector Piel S.A sets new benchmarks with two products with their extremely wide usage spectrum. Loose polyester fibres from the recycling of plastic bottles are primarily used as filling for cushions, mattresses, duvets and upholstered furniture to name but a few.
