The elastic band revolution
Nastrotex Cufra Spa has been a leader in the production of elastic bands for underwear, sportswear, and footwear for 65 years, founding its success on expertise and the ability to innovate. The Cucchi family’s vast experience in the sector, in the wake of traditional quality, looks to the company’s future with an avant-garde approach, promoting the development of technologies and material research.
The variety it offers is thanks to the company’s production capacity of 130 looms subdivided between flat, jacquard and crochet stitching, capable of creating 35 million metres of elastic bands per year destined to clients in Italy and around the world. «A couple of years ago – say the owners of Nastrotex Cufra - we designed the first digital printing machine for elastic bands.
The system allows digital printing, on different materials, of different custom designs on two sides of the elastic bands, perfectly coloured in every part, even when fully extended». This innovation has the effect of optimizing production and the purchase of dyes as well as offering a unique article in its kind. A revolution has begun and is not going to stop.
