The preparation of the warp for fabric production is the first stage of actual production: from the designer’s desk it goes to the warper. The designed fabric has satisfied the aesthetic and technical checks and is waiting to be made for real.
From designer to warper
After the fabric design phase – in which the style office, together with the technical office, selects the best yarns for the warp and weft – the production process begins: the warp yarn, gathered around the warper by the machines in the warping department, waits to be taken to the loom for weaving.
The focus on quality in production
A key technological component is the drop wires on the loom. Present since the dawn of mechanical weaving, the drop wires that jump on each warp thread are fundamental to the quality of production: if a thread breaks, the drop wire slides down and stops the loom, so a technician can intervene; and guarantee a faultless fabric.
Fabrics that are uniform to the eye and to the touch
On a flat loom, the healds, through which the warp threads pass, set the rhythm of the weaving and create the weave with their alternating movement. The warp threads rise and fall; the weft threads are placed in front of the comb, which beats regularly on the newly formed weave: this is the continuous rhythm that creates the fabrics; pleasant and homogeneous both to the eye and to the touch.
Aesthetic, technical and market requirements
The end result is the new fabric ready for dispatch – after it has passed under the watchful eyes of the quality department. From the seemingly simple yarn wrapped around the warp we have obtained fabrics of all types and weaves, depending on the requirements that each customer asks of us. In fact, the choice of yarns for warp and weft does not only respond to aesthetic or market requirements: from each yarn – and therefore from each combination of yarns – we obtain a fabric with precise technical characteristics.
