Knits and Wovens

Cool knitted fabrics from Sona Valliappa Group

You can tell the quality of a product by the machines that manufacture it. Valliappa prides itself in using the best available machinery, like the Mayer & Cie. Knitting machines that are fitted with bare lycra attachments.

We believe though that quality goes much beyond machinery. It's down to the very raw material we use. Which is why Valliappa manufactures the very yarn itself. Further, stringent quality inspections of yarn are carried out in the pre-knitting stage. Sophisticated drying technology then gives our products a controlled shrinkage guarantee.

Suga in India means comfort. That is what Sona valliappa Group has been providing to our customers and people at large, providing the comfort to our consumers from the 1930's.

Foremen tranning - the men and women involved in the shop floor are trained perodically, with modern methords and ideas to identfy all quality parameters.

Raw meterial
Stemming from the fact that we are basically spinners, we pay a paramount attention in choosing our yarns strictly. We look for appearance, we feel for comfort and we scout for the quality. We strive for all this so that you may have a SUGA Fabric.

We scrutinise the yarn with uster testers to find out how many faults/impurities the yarn may have. We also check the uster classimat for even a minuscule aberration that may impede the SUGAM for our Customers. We go into the minute details as we analyse the yarns across the diameter and length. We also believe that the human eye and the black boards are tested for the visual appearance. Through experience, we have also discovered that there could be hidden defects, which aren't visible to the naked eye. So we have special ultra violent equipment's which magnifies and intensifies, in the ultra violent light and showing the contamination's in the fabric. Each and every centimetre of our fabric is inspected before being packed.

Our people are trained to look at yarns and fabrics, with an eye for detailed. We inculcate in them the character of being a critic, so that they may evaluate and be critical about the yarns and fabrics, about ourselves, and the way we do things - to evolve what the Japanese put it Kaiezian.

The spectrum of our fabrics range from god given cool cottons to mixing manmade with godmade and generating Poly/Cotton, Poly/Viscose, Viscose/Cottton, 100% Viscose and 100% Polyester Fabrics.

The time and work spent on nearly a decade has helped us to associate continuously with some of the leading brands in the world and this has in turn made our processed fabrics very well accepted round the globe.

Our endeavour is to produce quality knits using yarns which are proven tested, using machines which have stood the test of time, using testing methods from which we have learnt and improvised over the years to give you a Suga Fabric.
