Tessitura Nesi Fausto & Nesi Silvano is a weaving mill founded by two brothers who started to produce fabrics, including shirting fabrics, upholstery fabrics, clothing materials, technical fabrics and more, in 1977 before developing their business in the 1980s by investing in new machinery and moving their company to its current location in Montale, Tuscany. With over 40 of experience in the industry, the Nesi brothers’ company has a strong know-how carried today by the second generation of the family who is running the business nowadays.
The main challenge of the weaving mill Tessitura Nesi Fausto & Nesi Silvano is to respond to customer requirements immediately. Due to various materials and applications, it is critical to meet high quality standards in the steps before weaving, especially in warp beam preparation, to ensure quick style changes. Handing a great many application types, the mill requires great flexibility in processing a wide range of yarns: unbleached or yarn-dyed (mainly medium-fine for apparel fabrics), both plain and colored, and, due to the latest trends, fancy yarns of varying thickness.
Tessitura Nesi Fausto & Nesi Silvano invested in a fully equipped Stäubli SAFIR S60 automatic drawing-in machine featuring the latest Active Warp Control feature. The state-of-the-art technology is unique to Stäubli. Furthermore, optional features for warps with or without a 1:1 lease, like repeat detection or the ultimate yarn sorting feature for warps without a 1:1 lease, allow automatic processing of the harness. The machine reliably draws even fancy yarns into all elements (reed, drop wires and healds) necessary to constitute a complete weaving harness ready for the weaving machine. The required flexibility has been achieved because the owners are passionate about meeting challenges. Over the years, they have adapted their operations to suit the market and steadily modernized their mills.
