Who We are
Over the years, we have brought our expertise and industry insight to 150+ apparel, fashion, and luxury clients, working exclusively with factories that share our ethos of transparency, quality, and environmental responsibility.
We believe that exceptional products require not only a deep understanding of the industry, but also an unwavering dedication to constant improvement and innovation. That's why we approach every project by leveraging our extensive network of suppliers to explore and adopt new trends in manufacturing, technology, and sustainability.
We are committed to minimising our environmental impact, supporting ethical practices, and promoting positive social change to create a more inspiring future for all.
index® was born from a belief in the functional value of essential garments and a culture of research, technical design, manufacturing and innovation that spanned more than a decade at the apex of the European apparel industry.
Destined to evolve from a service into a symbol for extreme quality and garment expertise, it was redefined as a brand.
Assembly® is a hybrid manufacturing software and integrated supply chain that lets you develop and produce garments at the push of a button.
The concept offers unprecedented access to the same high quality, advanced engineering, and sophisticated branding applications used by respected designer and luxury brands.
Colorifix minimises the environmental impact of industrial dyeing by replacing chemistry with biology at every step in the process, from the creation of the dyes to their fixation into fabrics.
Our mission is to transform industrial dyeing into an environmentally friendly, socially responsible, and economically viable process.

Inline & Final QC
Inline & Final QC
Over the years we have developed specific quality control procedures that aim to maximize our ability to catch any issues early on in the process, allowing enough time to implement corrective action where necessary.
Our quality controllers have an open-door policy at all of our factories and their sub-contractors, meaning that during the production phase our QC team are present on the factory floor daily to supervise cutting, printing, sewing and finishing.
Our return rate in 2022 was 0,0015%.
Monitoring of Production
Monitoring of Production
For new styles and fits we develop size sets for our clients' approval. We ensure that PP samples are always made using bulk fabric and trims so that there is little room for mistakes to be made during production.
We inspect bulk fabrics upon delivery at the factory and cuttings are immediately sent to our clients for approval.
By utilizing the time between PO handover and collection delivery our developers ensure that all TPs are updated according to specifications for bulk production and also arrange quality testing with our trusted lab partners in Portugal.
We prioritise building strong interpersonal relationships with our suppliers, and invest in modern collaboration methodologies that drive performance while fostering an enjoyable and productive work environment.
Trust, respect, and unconditional collaboration are the hallmarks of our strategic partnerships with suppliers at Rovó. We recognise the importance of forbearance and patience at the start of a collaboration, and create a working environment that encourages open communication and a willingness to overcome challenges together.
Building enduring supplier partnerships that deliver exceptional results for our clients is our top priority at Rovó.
We implement sustainable practices in a variety of ways; by tapping into our sourcing network and teaming up with innovative suppliers that are re-thinking raw material usage, investing in modern machinery that radically reduces water consumption and also converting to renewable energy to power their manufacturing and processing plants. By prioritizing sustainability we can help companies become more efficient and even cut costs by reducing energy requirements, minimizing waste, maximizing recycling and re-use by sourcing eco-fibers and bio-degradable packaging, and rethinking resource ownership
Finding the perfect balance between quality and cost is a delicate task. By identifying specific features in a product that are valuable to the final consumer we can help to optimize our clients' products and create savings. Adopting DTV methodology stimulates growth, maximizes customer satisfaction and gives brands an edge over market competitors by focusing on the features and characteristics of a product that are most valued by the end consumer.
We assist in product development on multiple levels from tech pack analysis to sourcing specific yarns and in many cases developing fabrics, prints, new dying methods, branded trims and packaging from scratch, creating unique and fully personalized products for our clients.
From the very beginning of the process our development team focus their efforts by experimenting with different fibers, yarn qualities, fabric finishes, embellishment techniques, alternative constructions and lay plans, for cutting during production, that can often uncover significant savings in unexpected areas.
Our product developers and commercial managers ensure that the critical path is adhered to throughout the development process in order to deliver your collection of samples according to specification and on time.
