Our core business!
We have built our group on our ability to weave all types of strips or fabrics for all markets. We have 7 ribbons and 1 wide weave to meet all your ribbon, strap and fabric requests. The basic weaving technique consists of intersecting two series of perpendicular threads, namely: warp threads lengthwise and weft threads in the width direction. The way in which the warp and weft threads intertwine is called the weave. There are 3 basic weaves: canvas, twill and satin. From these basic weaves, we will be able to produce a wide variety of fabrics or ribbons depending on: - The nature of the yarns used - The size or titration of the yarns used- Their twist- The tightness and density of the yarns in both directions.We master all the weaving techniques: we have within the group several thousand looms in all types of widths, with the possibility of working almost all the materials existing on the market.
This is the simplest weave, where each weft thread passes alternately above then below a warp thread. It is a blocked fabric, not very deformable given the density of the intersections made. The fabric has neither place nor reverse. This weave is widely used for clothing and furnishings under different names depending on its composition. We find in particular: - Taffeta: fine fabric with tight warp threads, originally in thread-dyed silk - Chiffon: very fine, light and transparent fabric, thanks to the use of very fine and widely spaced yarns in both directions - The batiste: fine and light white fabric, originally made of linen yarn - The cheesecloth: fabric with slightly tight threads, supple and light in appearance- Organdi: spun fabric obtained with overtwisted threads- Other names: cretonne, poplin, crepe, voile, oxford, percale, gros de tours…Derivatives are found: basket weaves, reps and canelés
Twill is a weave that has oblique ribs. It is obtained by passing the weft yarn under one, then two warp yarns, with a shift of one yarn on each pass, hence the oblique effect observed. The twill weave has greater flexibility than canvas. Like canvas, this weave has derivatives by increasing the number of threads that jump at the same time:- Gabardine, which has very marked ribs and whose warp and weft threads are very tight, which gives it impermeability natural- Twill, which has a supple appearance, originally in silk and now synthetic- Denim, which has an indigo blue warp and an ecru or white weft- Flannel, which is a brushed wool or cotton twill or tumbled to obtain a fluffy and warm appearance
The satin weave produces fairly supple, very soft fabrics. In this weave the cross stitches are 4 or more threads apart and give a smooth and shiny effect to the fabric. While the reverse is generally matt, less aesthetic, we have decided to produce almost exclusively double-sided satin, much more qualitative because it has 2 identical sides. There are derivatives of this weave, called satin finish and which consist in increasing the bonding points between warp and weft.
