The Sustainability of our Planet is one of Inovafil’s main goals and objectives.

As the Textile Industry is considered one of the most polluting, Inovafil presents as a solution the INOVAFILRECICLA.

It is a platform whose main objective is to promote partnerships for the creation of 360º textile projects (closed loop).

This platform will allow Inovafil’s customers/partners to manage and treat their pre and/or post consumer waste, in order to give them a “New Life”, thus contributing to the reduction of Textile waste and minimizing consumption of Virgin raw material.

INOVAFIL is a textile company that focuses on the production of yarn, both for the fashion industry and for more technical purposes. Both these products are unique and set the industry standards. Our headquarters and production plant are located in Guimarães and Vila Nova de Famalicão (Portugal) respectively.

The company was created in 2011 and relies on the expertise of shareholders who demonstrate a great deal of interest in the textile industry. These shareholders share all their expertise with us and help us position ourselves correctly in the markets in which we want to get involved.


Our management model is based upon integrity and honesty. We uphold these values in all our business relations, be it with staff, clients, suppliers, shareholders or the general community.


We follow the best management practices and we apply them to business management, safety, sustainability and productivity.


We have also invested on the quality control of our manufacturing processes. To do so, we have assembled an internal lab that runs 24/7. This lab guarantees that all our products have the highest quality, which consequently leads to 100% satisfied clients.


We create state of the art spinning solutions in order to meet, and if possible surpass, the expectations of an increasingly demanding market.

Social and Environmental Responsibility

We promote mutual respect and a good atmosphere between our staff, the company and the local community. The company does not accept child labour and forced or involuntary labour and promotes free association and collective hiring. Discriminatory behaviour with respect to employment practices, compensation, access to training and hiring on the basis of race, national origin, religion, disability, gender, age, sexual orientation, political affiliation or association or any other status is not permitted. In order to minimize the amount of wasted materials and be environmentally aware, we do our best to select environmentally friendly materials and processes.


All textile yarns developed at INOVAFIL are subjected to strict quality control throughout the entire production process.

To this end, we have an innovative internal laboratory where experienced professionals work uninterruptedly to ensure the best possible result.

INOVAFIL has implemented an integrated management system that includes the Quality Management System.

INOVAFIL produces a wide variety of Special Blends, both colored and raw, using standard Compact and Open End spinning techniques.
Thanks to our cutting edge technology, we are able to process natural, artificial and synthetic fibers.
