TEF is steadily developing breakthrough fabrics, and maintains the largest inventory of patterned/tension distributive fabrics in the industry.
Through over a decade of R&D, TEF has developed software and technology that transform a lace-making machine into a producer of fabric for broad applications. TEF’s braiding technology allows for the manufacture of products with diversified zones in a single piece of fabric with targeted characteristics. These zones demonstrate a range of resistance, durability, compressibility, and breathability. Design options using pattern engineering are limitless.
TEF’s proprietary braided and patterned textile innovations deliver
fundamental, streamlined solutions to industry challenges for a breadth consumer and commercial products within the fashion, sports, scientific, and medical sectors.
Designer/inventor Brad Jamison’s pioneering graphic interface for lace braiding machines translates visual representation of fiber paths for creating advanced patterns and designing complex structures.
