1. Painting canvasses and tapestries by hand

Cotton fabrics such as canvas can never be woven exactly straight. By hand-painting the canvas colour by colour these differences can be corrected. As a result its quality level is substantially higher than that of machine-printed canvasses. Symmetrically laying out the drawing on the fabric requires utmost precision.

2. Silk-screen prints for textile, table mats and upholstery fabrics

The silk-screen printing technique allows for a very broad range of colour tones. Moreover, special washable ink is used for applying silk-screen printings onto the Vervaco table mats. After one wash the printed pattern on the fabric disappears, resulting in a lovely piece of embroidery.

3. Sublimating and manufacturing polyester textile

In sublimation print the sublimation ink of the transfer paper with a digital or analogue print is heated with a printing press in order to make the ink gaseous. The fabric to be printed absorbs the ink. The colour of the material to be printed has to be white or transparent, as the inks are transparent and would not be visible on a coloured background.

The big advantage of sublimation printing in comparison to normal printing is that the textile absorbs the ink. This means that the print can be washed without fading, wearing or tearing.
This sublimation technique is used at CPT for producing high-quality personalised sports clothes for various sports branches.

Ready-made clothes

All sublimed fabric parts are manufactured in our own workshop, in accordance with first-rate quality requirements and standards. These completely finished products are packaged and delivered according to your specific requirements.

As an additional service, we offer the possibility of designing the respective patterns and gradations as well as digitalising the final cutting plans.

Our ready-made clothes department is of course not only equipped for assembling high-quality sports articles but also for producing various textile articles, ranging from table cloths, table covers and chair covers and specialised articles for various purposes.

These specialised articles include:
- The Vervaco Home Deco cushions
- Lace borders for table mats.

5. Design processing
Computer-aided design

As soon as the creation team has completely finished a design, it is sent online to CPT, where the necessary modifications are introduced in order to get the new design ready for production. Computers play a vital role in this process. By using various software applications, each design is perfectly digitalised in order to be processed immediately in the production process.

6. Embroidery

Every needlework kit is manufactured in-house, so that its drawing, the amount of yarn used, etc. can be checked. That is why we are able to continuously deliver high-quality and flawless needlework kits. (See item 8, Quality Control)

7. Packaging department and warehouse

Optimal warehouse- and stock management is extremely important in order to guarantee continuity in supplying all needlework kits. The digital management of all articles is also centralised and kept up-to-date on a daily basis.

In our packaging department needlework kits are put together with utmost precision and according to well-defined control procedures, enabling us to supply them as a complete, finished kit. This process takes place in accordance with each customer’s specific requirements and methods. Checking the type and quantity of yarn for each kit, combined with other packaging requirements, is very important. This control procedure is strictly observed in order to deliver a correct and high-quality end-product.

8. Quality Control

Before taking up a needlework kit into the Vervaco range, it is first embroidered several times by the Quality Control Unit. The quality of the paint, the yarn quantity, the finishing level, etc. is checked.

The collection pieces (for photography purposes) and the finished shop window elements (for customers and fairs) are made in this unit as well.

Each of the activities mentioned above is highly labour-intensive and time-consuming. Nonetheless they result in unparalleled quality.
