How we work

Nova Fides manages the entire production and control cycle, many of which are completed internally. All phases, completed internally or externally by qualified providers, are managed using sophisticated computer programs that provide full information about the textiles.

Fabric samples and bulk production


Nova Fides’s internal textile production area is called Paola Textile, and that’s where we make both fabric samples and bulk fabrics ordered by our clients. Order schedules are guaranteed thanks to our sophisticated management systems.

Yarn archive


Nova Fides has a large archive of yarns in every colour and material. The yarn archive is entirely automatic, managed by a mobile structure that is both space-saving and allows for the accurate cataloguing of yarns that are always available.

Felt samples


When using regenerated fibres, the dying process is excluded. Fibres are made due to an accurate sorting of used clothing that is divided by colour, so that the final fibre becomes that same colour. So how do you get the colour you want? By mixing the fibres of different colours; we make small felt samples until we mix the perfect result.

The internal laboratory is one of Nova Fides’s strong points: inside, highly specialized personnel test the physical and chemical quality of our products, and all textiles are accompanied by a data sheet that indicates each lot’s statistics. The laboratory is also officially recognized by some brands as a certified partner.

Quality control


Customer service here at Nova Fides is based on two main factors: on time delivery and few complaints. In order to guarantee that textiles are made exactly as ordered, we have an internal quality control team. Every piece is checked and any defects are carefully noted.

Close the loop


Since 2011, Nova Fides has been operating in the used clothing recycling industry, selecting and salvaging used clothing that is returned to the stores of major brands that have collection policies. The material is selected, classified, and then each one follows a different path in order to recuperate as much fibre as possible. Unfortunately, not every scrap of material can become a fashion item again, but we make sure that these scraps find their way into other sectors that can use textile scraps. In this, 60 years of experience comes in handy.

PRSL


PRSL is a standard that Nova Fides has created in order to respect brands’ production standards and also define internal production ones in order to guarantee the correct use of chemicals and limit environmental impact. This new standard was created in collaboration with 4Sustainability®.
