Various technics


Working in partnership with Karl Mayer, Tianhai developed a new gold standard in warp knitted lace machines, nicknames “Teavers”. This machine was developed to emulate as close as possible the look of French Leavers lace. Teavers has the greatest patterning capability, allowing intricate designs with incredible depth. Teavers lace gives you a super light and delicate hand feel.


Originally designed as fabric machine, over the course of many years, engineers of Tianhai have pushed this machine in new and interesting ways, creating more and more impressive designs far beyond this machine’s original scope. Knitted as a flat fabric with the potential to incorporate large amounts of Lycra if needed, this is truly a general purpose machine. It can be used for anything from lightweight, delicate all overs, to thick, mouldable fabrics to firm control wear and anything in-between. Also, because it is a modern, fast machine, it offers cost-effective price alternative to tradition warp knitted lace technology.


The weft knitting machine produces fabrics which are almost transparent in their fineness; soft, delicate and beautiful to behold. It works brilliantly for knickers and pleated bras. Weft knit offers a light, delicate and soft alternative to other all overs.
