Balas Textile is based on the creation, innovation, design and production of technical fabrics in the fields of fashion, sport and personal protection. It is the association of 3 French industrialists, generating more than 250 direct and indirect jobs in Rhône-Alpes.
Our teams are in direct contact with mainly European but also international spinning mills, in order to select and develop the best supplies while guaranteeing traceability, regularity and environmental ethics.
We also participate in the development of new blends that can bring new performance and functionality to our fabrics. It is a job that necessarily includes a relationship and long-term partnerships with our suppliers. Our yarns are mostly labeled Oekotex standard 100. We are constantly improving our recycled range, while remaining vigilant on thecarbon impact and transformation processes allowing respect for the environment.
This is the historical activity of BALAS TEXTILE with real know-how which is for some, mastered for over 30 years.
Our weaving workshop, based in the region, uses the latest innovations thanks to a strong investment capacity and thus allows a large production capacity.
Our machine park consists of small width (2 mts) and large width air jet looms up to 5 mts. We have a very efficient inspection and packaging system that allows us to control our quality. It is also part of a process oftechnical innovation but also respectful of the environment and societal values.

It is part of a policy of machine purchase and renewal of equipment in collaboration with all of its subcontractors.
