The Martelli Lavorazioni Tessili Group has been an innovator in dyeing and laundry in the denim sector for more than 50 years. The company operates eight facilities, including four in Italy and one each in Romania, Turkey, Morocco and Tunisia. Clients include a who’s who of top jeans makers, such as Levi’s, Replay, Sixty, Nudie, Dolce & Gabbana, Dsquared2 and Roberto Cavalli.
At Martelli, advances in technology and the imperatives of environmental and social mandates are fast changing the nature of denim finishing, Giovanni Petrin, general manager of the Imola, Italy-based company, said at last week’s WWD Denim Forum.
