INNOVATION, DESIGN AND MANUFACTURE OF NARROW FABRICS
TRADITION & INNOVATION
Established since 1905 in the village of Saint-Just-Malmont (Haute-Loire – FRANCE), Satab has, over the years, become a benchmark in the narrow fabric market. We create, weave, braid and knit ribbons, straps, cords… rigid or elastic in the very heart of the historic cradle of the ribbon-making tradition: Saint-Etienne, in east-central France.
By combining high-tech manufacturing facilities with modern automatic looms and the world’s largest active fleet of wooden “shuttle looms” – which has seen us awarded the Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant (Living Heritage Company) label – Satab is constantly innovating.

FIELDS OF APPLICATION
NEITHER DO OUR SOLUTIONS
MADE IN FRANCE, FROM YARN TO FINISH
We don’t just supply customers with ribbons, straps, elastics, and cords; Satab makes it a point of honour to produce narrow fabrics that are 100% Made In France. This means we protect and nurture our know-how and highlight the excellent work of all our employees: machinists, weavers, textile engineers, machine technicians, etc.
We master all steps along the manufacturing process: yarn preparation (warping) / manufacturing (weaving, braiding, knitting) / finishing (dyeing, printing) / finishing (rolling, heat-setting, coating, cutting, confection)…
RIBBON, WEBBING, BRAID, MESH…
NO COMPROMISING ON THE WELL-BEING OF PEOPLE AND THE PLANET

As a company and above all as a textile manufacturer, we are aware that we are part of the problem… but we are also part of the solution. For over a decade, we have been implementing various cross-functional actions as part of a sustainable approach
Acting with others, we can have a positive impact on our environment while engaging our community, partners, customers, suppliers… in the process. We embrace, and expect our partners to embrace, an ethical and CSR approach as set out in a signed code of conduct.
