R&D & INNOVATION

Özel Tekstil sees the concepts of URGE - "Product Development" and R&D - "Research and Development" as interconnected yet independent concepts. Therefore, URGE and R&D activities are carried out by two separate units that complement each other.

R&D

At Özel Tekstil, one of our strengths is our commitment to innovation. Our design team, composed of talented and groundbreaking designers and textile engineers, conducts continuous research both domestically and internationally. Our designers closely follow the latest trends, while our engineers keep track of new technologies and raw materials. Our collections are prepared as a synthesis of these two efforts. Our R&D department develops 2 main season collections and 6 mid-capsule season collections every year.

Product Development

Within Prodcut Development, CAD work is carried out for product development requests from our customers, and when required, thread color studies are conducted based on the color palette. In cases where CAD work is not sufficient, a hand sample woven with the requested colors and threads is produced. Hand samples help in forming clearer ideas from a product and production safety perspective.

Our customer and collection samples are produced using state-of-the-art "sample warping, weaving, and dyeing" machines, with sample production ranging from 20m to 300m, serving both our customers and our collection work.
