Welcome to the Denim Academy!
Denim Academy is a training program and online reference dedicated to all aspects of manufacturing and treating denim. It is mainly intended for Orta customers, but anyone's online questions are welcome. The training program is based on 2 day workshops customized to the attendees' needs at Orta's Kayseri factory in Anatolia (Central Turkey). Cotton Storage, weaving, dying, and laundering are some of the topics covered; typically by a walk-through of the production line followed by an in depth workshop. Attendees are certified at the end of the workshop. Books and different materials are usually published in relation to the workshops. With the birth of our sustainability division's website, ortablu.org, we intend to expand the diffusion of this invaluable know-how to the online community. We want Denim Academy to become a sort of Wikipedia for denim at the disposal of anybody who has questions or projects where they may need our help.
