Tessil-Tex Due was founded in 1974 as Tessil-Tex s.n.c. becoming Tessil-Tex Due S.r.l. in early 1995, with a Head office and Manufacturing Plant situated at Strada Sabbioni, 21, in Trofarello near to Turin;
In 2014 Tessil-Tex Due celebrated 40 years in business.

The Company is active on a daily basis working with the most up-to-date technologies, developing and producing technical fabrics in both rolls and cut pieces for the Automotive and Industrial Markets.

Our material produced with the malivlies technology can be supplied plain or printed with a pattern or design according to our customer’s specification.

In response to market demands, it is possible to treat fabrics with finishing processes that provide flame retardancy and resistance to water and oil.

The coating process allows for the non-woven material to have a foam backing (acrylic, vynilic, or poliuretanyc), that when polymerized at high temperatures, creates a bonding of the technical fabric to the substrate during the customers’ moulding process.

The polythene process allows for the application of a thermoadesive powder, that when polymerized at high temperatures, creates a bonding of the technical fabric to the substrate during the customers’ moulding process.

Tessil-Tex Due supplies products to both the Italian and Foreign Markets, supporting customers in the research and development of new products and new applications.




Tessil-Tex Due was founded in 1974 as Tessil-Tex Due S.n.c. by our President Mr Giovanni Barrera, the company began in the production and trading of industrial bolts for cleaning at a plant in nearby Moncalieri (Turin).

Due to a change in market activity, the Company invested heavily in the development of personnel and technology so as to orientate itself towards producing non-woven materials for the automotive market.

In January 1995, the new Company Tessil-Tex Due S.r.l., was founded as a result of the handover to Enrico Barrera, General Manager and son of the founder.
Production was transferred to a new manufacturing facility in Trofarello (Turin) which occupies approximately 21000 m2.

In recent years, Tessil-Tex Due’s flexibility has developed and along with investment in both new technologies and personnel, has allowed the Company to enjoy a growing increase in market share through continuous development and production of new products.

Laboratory activity is regulated by procedures and instructions in accordance with the technical specification ISO TS 16949/2002.

The Laboratory is equipped with small prototype development machines that can simulate all of the processes used in production, thus making it possible to produce new ideas and development samples for Customers.

The Laboratory also has the following test instruments at its disposal:

  • Dynamometer for tensile strength, elongation, breaking load, bursting strength, tearing strength.
  • Perspyrometer to test resistance to the water exposure.
  • Crockmeter to test resistance to rubbing.
  • Usometro per la prova di resistenza all’usura.
  • Usometer to test resistance to wear.

Additional tests can be carried out by external laboratories certificated by SIT.
