Monofilament: a new trend
According with the philosophy of the Company, MEI has introduced a new loom configuration, apposite created for the production of a new "fashion label": woven labels produced using monofilament warping.

As you know woven labels are textiles and by nature contain stitches or 'binders' which can distract the eye and break-up small letters. To overcome this we offer our Monofilament qualities on MEI last generation machines with soft woven edge. For this particular product, MEI offers a SPECIAL rapier (positive) loom. The final result is a new and innovative woven labels with high quality and a perfect cutting on selvedges Minute nylon threads are included in the warp and these are used to tie down the figure weft invisibly. The result is a very solid figure with a less textile appearance. The combination of high definition and monofilament gives a truly 'PRESTIGE' quality.
