How does a textile come about?
Everything begins with inspiration and research: study. The creation of a new textile is always an alchemy of many different inspirations. Starting with the effect wanted, the stitches are chosen and the yarns selected, paying particular attention to the colours and thickness of the fibre. After putting the project onto paper the important and often very long preparation of the warp follows. The warp starts its life in the warping mill with antique, specialised machinery. The cones and threads, delicately wound with the right tension and care, create the basic textile.
