You can seamlessly combine the ADO collections with other styles - especially with your own personal design ideas.

 

Of course, our internal values really matter too. This is why we pay special attention to the quality of our products and maintain a strict quality assurance process.

Overview of our quality and product advantages

ADO fabrics offer a high level of functionality and quality. We have been vouching for our extraordinary product quality for a long time by offering a five-year guarantee.

Low-maintenance

A great deal of joy with minimal effort. We make sure that all of our fabrics are washable at a temperature of at least 30 °C and retain their shapes even after several washes.

Easy processing

ADO specialises in room-height fabrics, and at least 95 per cent of its fabrics have a fabric width of 280 cm or greater. This means that you receive twice as much fabric for your money, and the fabric is also easier to sew.

Colour- and light-fast

As beautiful as on the first day. Our fabrics retain their brightness and colour intensity and remain soft to the touch even when exposed to strong sunlight.

Mix 'n Match - versatile combination options

Everything goes well together. Our products feature colours and designs that are perfectly coordinated with one another, ensuring that you can always create a calm and individual interior design.

Our quality process

All our products undergo the following process in order to meet our quality standards.

QUALITY REQUIREMENTS

THE PRODUCT PASSPORT

 

Before we add fabrics to our range, they first have to meet certain quality criteria. They are tested with the aid of our product passport, which states the minimum requirements for fastness properties such as colour and light fastness, the fabric construction and physical characteristics, among other things.

 

 

 

PRODUCT TESTING

TEST MECHANISM

 

If the fabrics meet the minimum requirements set out in the product passport, each individual fabric is subjected to stringent washing and ironing tests at our laboratory. This is because we're only willing to offer a fabric to our customers if it can supply the best possible quality.Each fabric is then ready made at our sewing studio to test for which manufacturing method it is best suited - in other words, we examine whether it should be made into a panel curtain, roller blind or a Covertex wall covering, for example. Each drapery is also ready made with two different weight tapes in order to achieve the best possible result. At ADO Goldkante, the weight tape (the golden thread) is delivered as ready made with the product. Particular technical properties, such as Martindale values and thermal properties, are tested at an external, accredited testing institute.

INCOMING GOODS INSPECTION

FULL INSPECTION

 

Each fabric that we have added to our range undergoes a full incoming goods inspection in the next step before it is accepted at our warehouse and further processed. This means that the fabric is unrolled fully from the fabric roll and inspected for abnormalities by our trained quality team. The fabric is also inspected in terms of other criteria such as fabric width, repeats, colours, feel and odours. Each fabric is unique and is therefore also tested individually according to product-specific guidelines concerning transport, packaging and storage. All these processes serve to ensure the quality of our products.

RELATIONSHIPS WITH SUPPLIERS

WORKING SHOULDER TO SHOULDER FOR QUALITY DEVELOPMENT

 

Our suppliers - some of which have their headquarters in Germany - are naturally also key to our success. They provide us with high-quality materials, which we then use to make first-class products. Our mutual success and ability to learn together have formed the foundations of trusting partnerships that have grown over the years. We optimise quality development processes together by regularly communicating with each other. Of course, we also carry out regular site visits to ensure that our suppliers maintain a clean and tidy production environment.

_ Compliance with strict product passport criteria
