Process: This is how we make our fabrics
The manufacturing process of the fabrics requires time, patience and dedication. This consists of six stages:
1. PreparationsThe raw materials (cotton and linen) arrive at the workshop in the form of crumbs of raw color. They are placed in the file so that all the threads pass through the server, where they are grouped and ready to prepare the reserves, being then removed manually.
2. Dyeing the fibersThe grouped fibers are dyed in a boiler that in a few hours will leave cotton dyed evenly with the desired dye. After dyeing, the plastics are removed for service.
3. DryingThe grouped fibers are dyed in a boiler that in a few hours will leave cotton dyed evenly with the desired dye. After dyeing, the plastics are removed for service.
The reserves are the areas of the threads covered with pieces of plastic, strongly buckled so during dyeing, the dye does not penetrate inside. This way, the characteristic drawings that make up arrows or combine several shades are achieved, and the artisanal process causes the dye to be slightly irregular and blur on its edges. This phase takes one day of work.
4. DryingOnce dyed and dried, the threads are placed manually on the stirrer. This part lasts 3 days for the threads to be sorted one by one. It is important to do so because if they are not correctly placed, the final cloth does not correspond twith the desired pattern.
5. WeavenThe threads are weaved "to the plain" (taffeta), using raw linen as a plot.
6. Quality controlOnce the fabric is woven, the meters are counted and inspected to verify that it meets all the quality standards that we have marked to allow it to be ready for commercialization.
