An aesthetic detail – Case #512

September 19, 2016


“A picture is worth a thousand words”. Practical solutions to problems encountered in the manufacturing process that demonstrate how we assist our customers’ factories to produce Right from the Start TM.

Problem: the reinforcement tape from the lining side is visible between the double stitching, especially in curved areas, looking very unaesthetic.

Impactiva solution: we got the factory to revise the construction of this shoe. We advised them to do an underlay stitching instead of using reinforcement tape. This will:

– help to save time during the lining pieces attachment operation

– reduce the cost of material (no need for reinforcement tape, just attaching the components with glue and a single stitch)

Single stitching is enough for good strength in this case, and the aesthetic look of the shoe is enhanced.
