The power of InStitch™ is harnessed within our own in-house sewing lab and our continuous investment in stitching innovations.  

Inteva’s well-honed capabilities in sewing process development, our patented sewing head technology, and the latest manual and robotic sewing production technologies allow us to support your brand image in ways that save you time and money.

Inteva stitching makes the “impossible” possible.


Thin Profile 3-D Stitching: This live, non-functional stitch meets long-standing industry requests for stitching on the tip of the cluster brow and provides fewer restrictions on back-side features for optimal part performance. We have the capability to stitch in deep, narrow channels of preformed bilaminate and compact sheet materials.

One-Step Stitching: Our live, non-functional decorative stitching on an automotive interior trim panel gives the ability to add stitching after soft trim lamination while providing studio designers flexibility in stitch loft.

Edge Stitching: This innovation is exactly as it sounds — right on the edge. We are able to sew a live, non-functional decorative stitch on surfacing only previously possible with true cut, sew and wrap clad parts.  

Contour Stitching of preformed 3-D Parts: Our in-mold grain (IMG) thermoformed InteatherTM materials can be sewn prior to both foam-in-place and press lamination processes with live, non-functional stitching.

3-D hard-surface stitching: Let us elevate your “basic” look. The development and application of our live, non-functional stitches to a hard, grained molded plastic or composite part save our customers money.

Decorative stitching: We give our customers the styling freedom to create the exact look and feel for their brand. InStitch™ provides distinctive stitching, thread color and enhanced location possibilities on preformed 3-D parts, as well as conventional cut-and-sew products.

Illuminated Stitching: The integration of a light conducting medium into our stitch seam provides an alternative location for ambient lighting. Intensity and frequency of illumination can be connected to vehicle electronics such as turn signal, radios, and engine RPMs.
