Standard Textile, the world leader in institutional textile development, manufacturing and distribution, announced it has sued Sobel Westex in Federal Court in New Jersey for infringing one of Standard Textile's longstanding patents on woven sheeting.

Specifically, Standard Textile asserts that Sobel Westex has sold and is currently selling sheets under the name "Dolce Notte" that infringe on a Standard Textile patent issued in 1996 covering woven sheeting fabrics made with spun cotton warp yarns and texturized multifilament filling yarns. This technology, which demonstrably enhances product comfort and strength and reduces operational cost by extending service life, is currently utilized by Standard Textile in the manufacturing of several popular hospitality sheets and pillowcases, including such well-known and respected brands as ComforTwill, Centium Satin, and Centima.

Gary Heiman, Standard Textile President and Chief Executive Officer commented, "We invest significant resources in the ongoing research and development of proprietary products and technologies that are unique in the advantages they provide for our customers and our industry. The popularity and market share of our exclusive product portfolio and our status as the preferred supplier to some of the industry's largest and most respected brands attest to the value of our research and development initiatives. The patent laws are intended to encourage and reward creativity and technological innovation and we will not allow others to profit unlawfully by selling products that infringe on our patents. We will vigorously defend our intellectual property rights by pursuing all available remedies from Sobel Westex for its infringement of these rights."
