With almost three decades of experience, Industrias Texteis Milagre, located in Brazil’s southern region of Farroupilha, started as a business project based on a quality ideal, a nature preservation approach and a commitment to building strong relationships with collaborators, customers, suppliers and the community. Now, a consolidated brand that focuses primarily on the shoe-manufacturing sector, ITM makes use of its advanced technology to offer a diversified line of products for uppers, linings, insoles and tongues that can be used in men’s, women’s and children’s footwear. The company also supplies products for sports, safety and military shoes as well as the backpack, luggage, motorcycle and outdoor apparel markets. ITM is an important part of INVISTA’s global mill network and has been a qualified CORDURA® fabric mill since 2003.
ITM’s capabilities include plain weaving, circular knitting and warp knitting. In addition to these fabric manufacturing capabilities, ITM also has an on-site dye house and lamination center.
ITM works with yarns such as cotton, polyester, polyamide, aramid, spandex and linen. The lamination center uses clean, efficient lamination techniques that support their corporate responsibility and nature preservation ideals.
Textile Formation for Footwear Overview
- Plain weaving - produces high resistance fabrics that are primarily used in military boots, casual and safety footwear, and performance shoes.
- Circular knitting - produces a fabric with high elasticity and softness to the touch. Circular knitted fabrics are primarily used for the internal part of shoe, or lining, and are found most prevalently in women’s, children’s and casual footwear.
- Warp knitting - produces fabrics that are used for liners and other materials.
Current Innovations and Projects:
3D-Pack Combined outside shell fabric laminated directly onto a spacer lining. 3D-integration is a combination of shell CORDURA® fabric + CLP (Clean Lamination Process), a breathable PUR Adhesive + Smartec Air® foamless lining.
