Saniflor produces cotton bathroom mats in its plant located in Verbania, a wonderful city on the lake Maggiore, in Italy. In the 19th century this area was already industrialised and particularly dedicated to the cotton manufacturing, thanks to the favourable environment where there is large availability of water.
In 1842 the Muller brothers founded an important factory for the cotton weaving. After severals reorganizations and ownership transfers, in 1975 this factory was taken over by Saniplast S.p.A., a company with headquarter in Ospitaletto (Brescia), Italy, today on the market with three different brands: Saniplast, Saniflor and Progetti Saniplast.
Thanks to a complete process with high vertical integration, the production of cotton mats in Verbania plant is an example of creativity and technology innovation which are precious key-factors in this field.
On the back of Saniflor mats a no-slip system is applied in order to guarantee the maximum safety for the final user who steps on it everyday. This working is also the important result of an internal process: a no-slip "drop" is silkscreened on the back of the mat; this drop can be either round or rectangular, depending on the same product. The company guarantees the duration of this no-slip system, but it is important that some requirements for the care of the product are respected such as the temperature of the washing machine water which must not exceed 30°C.
The collections of "Bath and furniture mats brand Saniflor" are made in pure cotton using the most advanced weaving Tufting technology. Always manufactured in house there is the production of canvases on which open-end cotton yarn are tufted. These are then yarn-dyed or left natural to be piece-dyed in a second time depending on the product itself. Then each mat is hand-finished in the finishing division, where any possible imperfection is removed.
A combination of industrial processes and craftsmanship gives to Saniflor mats the unique feature typical of the high quality level of Italian products. The attention detail, a superb variety of chichi and the originality of shapes are the ultimate expression of a timeless "Made in Italy".
