Blue Diamond and Adriano Goldschmied
Blue Diamond was founded in 1958 as a cotton mill in Xingtai city, a province of Hebei. Hebei is one of China’s leaders in cotton output, relying on its cotton farmers and mills to meet the demands of the global cotton market. We blend our cotton from various locations such as Texas, Brazil, Australia and China for the best consistency. In 1996, Blue Diamond committed itself to specializing in denim production. Our biggest strengths are its focus on quality and indigo intensity, as well as it’s mastery of blended fabrics. Collaborating with the “Godfather of Denim”, Adriano Goldschmied, Blue Diamond’s mill now has an expansive range of basic, premium, blends and technology denim.
Blue Diamond is committed to a greener future with its willingness to use cotton blends with sustainable fibers such as Lenzing Modal ®, TENCEL ®, VISCOSE ®, and REFIBRA ®. In addition to this, our mill is also researching the use of recycled cotton, organic cotton, natural fibers and recycled polyester, REPREVE ®. We work with some of the best and most notable fiber manufacturers in the world like Lenzing, Invista, Unify, Singtel and many others.
At Blue Diamond facility, we have 5 lines of rope dying equipment, consisting of 16 dips and 5 lines for flat finishing, coating and heat setting. We import from Belgium the most advanced Picanol rapiers and are currently housing 344 high-speed looms. We spin, dye, weave and finish our products in a single location. In addition, Blue Diamond’s state of the art textile technology enables us to coordinate and optimize production, while providing top quality assurance.
