Sharabati Denim with their production sites in Egypt and in Turkey, weaves more than 80 million meters of denim, corduroy, and grey fabrics every year. Ever since committed to respecting environmental sustainability, Sharabati Denim introduced process optimizations to decrease water and energy waste and to promote responsible employment of chemicals.
Precisely because of this vision, after the market launch in 2018 of the Itema rapier weaving machine exclusively dedicated to weave denim – the R9500-2denim, Sharabati Denim was among the pioneers to install a first group of this machine model, equipped with the one of a kind iSAVER®, the device that completely eliminates weft and warp waste on the left side of the fabric leading to significant cotton and water savings.
The R9500-2denim and iSAVER® performances were very satisfying– the best in their category – and led in 2021 to a repeat order both for the Egyptian and the Turkish plant for a total of more than 180 machines.
In 2022, Sharabati Denim implemented an expansion project aimed at significantly increase its production capacity. The weaving partner selected to provide 200 weaving machines for the Egyptian mill is Itema and, once again, its rapier R9500-2denim with iSAVER®. With this last order, Sharabati Denim owns a fleet of more than 400 Itema rapier R9500-2denim, thus achieving outstanding levels of performances, sustainability and technological prowess.
