Founded in 1979, Arpex Textiles is a family business deeply rooted in the tradition of the Apulian territory, which produces and distributes textile accessories, laces and ribbons for footwear. Thanks to the experience consolidated over the years, to the continuous innovation to meet the needs of an ever-changing market, in 2019 Arpex distinguished itself winning at the Campidoglio (Capitol), the Industria Felix award 2019 among 100 Italian excellences. Recently it also obtained the ISO 9001 certification, an important recognition of the quality management system of company processes, products and customer service.

2020 has been an important year for the company which, during the pandemic, converted part of its production into elastic strings for face masks, in order to help during the emergency phase.

Despite the complicated times, Arpex does not fear anything and points its gaze towards new investments and stimulating projects, with a single goal, which has never been lost sight of: the company's growth. The conversion of production into recycled items can be seen in this perspective: Arpex thus aligns itself with its slogan “(not) ONLY GREEN” where it expresses adherence to an eco-friendly philosophy and practice, at the same time communicating, ironically, the wide range of colours of its accessories.

Tested in the CIMAC laboratory, Arpex laces guarantee excellent mechanical-physical characteristics, both in terms of tensile strength, elongation at break and abrasion resistance.
