History of Company:

Swisstex Direct, LLC, provides the global apparel manufacturing community with a total fabric solution for circular knitted fabrics. With innovative design and product development combined with the highest quality knitting, dyeing and finishing applications, we provide our customers with beneficial options and flexibility at our Los Angeles and El Salvador facilities.

Founded in 2005, Swisstex Direct provides a completely vertical solution with competitive pricing, backed by renowned quality, reliability, quick turn around and responsive customer service. As one of the world’s most technologically advanced dye and finishing facilities, the Swisstex group provides a one‐stop textile solution.

Swisstex firmly believes in the recycling, reuse of all materials possible. You will not find the use of any carriers for polyester dyeing or any resins of Formaldehydes that would be used for shrinkage control. Our commitment to operating a low impact facility leads us to alternative finishing procedures in order to avoid that use of extremely harsh chemicals that are harmful to humans or the environment.

At Swisstex, we adhere to a green corporate philosophy, with a full range of earth-friendly production and business practices that reduce waste and save natural resources. We pass the eco-advantage to our clients, in the knowledge that their fabrics were produced to a higher standard of efficiency.

We are continuously searching for ways to minimize our environmental footprint. As a result, we consume half the energy in our facility as the typical dyeing facility in the United States – with even greater savings over comparable facilities worldwide – measured in resources consumed per pound of fabric dyed.

Swisstex is a bluesign® partner. The basic idea behind the bluesign® standard is to combine aspects of consumer safety, water and air emissions as well as occupational health in a single standard under the general objective of resource productivity. With its practical and solution-oriented approach, the bluesign® standard creates transparency along the whole textile production chain without compromising functionality, quality or design.
