In our company yarn goes in and finished products come out.
We have always produced tights and stockings and, pair after pair, we imagine the moment when you will wear them.
Each product is created thanks to a series of closely linked processes, controlled and coordinated
with skill and experience. We believe that traceability is an added value, an important step towards
transparency. A quick way to let you know the soul of what you are wearing.

Weaving is the stage where the loom weaves the threads together to make a fabric. Our hosiery looms are special machines that weave a tube instead of a flat fabric. The tube, opened at the top and bottom, will become the body of the sock in subsequent steps.

At the sewing stage, specialised personnel sew together the upper part of two tubes to create the pantyhose bodice and close the lower part to create the toe. For the simplest articles, large sewing machines work independently under the sole control of technicians and mechanics.

You do not need to iron the socks at home because we already do it for the whole life of the product. We have large metal plates in the shape of legs where we put the socks. These shapes heat up and fix the shape of the sock without wrinkles. A real advantage! You can save your time and consumption.

To dye, we use machines that are very similar to large washing machines where, in the 'detergent drawer', we put mixtures of colours carefully designed by our chemists. The waste from the dyeing machines is then purified, so that only clean water is returned, which does not harm the environment.

A lot of skilled hands folding, arranging, bagging and boxing. They also have the daring task of checking that no thread has been pulled during all the steps. For simple operations, robot machines are used which, on packaging lines, complete the operation.
The entire production cycle is carried out at the Oroblù Hub in Ceresara.
Discover our commitment
Oroblù is a brand born from the experience of CSP Internatinal Fashion Group. Home to brands of excellence in the manufacturing sector,
CSP focuses on transparency and traceability as the key to its eco-sustainable vision.
Commitment and Vision
We have chosen to invest in the future by focusing on a new vision of eco-sustainability, based on 3 pillars:
The preservation of resources, through attention to the use of raw materials.
Our aim is to become increasingly independent from renewable raw materials, preferring recycled pre or post consumer or bio-based yarns.
We are committed to developing production processes with reduced environmental impact.
We have introduced a partial recovery phase for dyeing water, which reduces water and electricity consumption. From 2020, we have chosen to use only electricity from renewable sources.
Transparency and traceability through the 'Made in CSP' project.
We intend to tell people where and how the tights and stockings we produce are made. Over the years we have built up an important treasure trove of experience, which we cherish at our factories in the province of Mantua (Ceresara), preferring Italian production wherever possible.
