Argola works with 3D technology

At Argola Textile Yacht Design, great consideration is also given to initial and ongoing employee education, as well as the process of discovering and mastering new techniques. For example, 3D technology was introduced in their production process in 2017, which not only led to quicker distribution and a greater level of sustainability but also created a new vision for business in textile design and opened the door into the world of mega and superyachts.

Since then, the company has created an enviable project portfolio in cooperation with shipyards, designers and private clients, leaving a distinctive signature on each product, and they have also collaborated with all marinas in the Adriatic, to mutual satisfaction.

‘Final touches are what make every space unique, and we really considered everything and connected everything. As we design and make custom-made nautical mattresses, we decided to add to our catalog bedding that will fit those mattresses, knowing they are not standard sizes. Our clients are delighted when they read the label and see the bedding has been washed, ironed and is ready for immediate use,’ commented Nikolina.
