on the Jacquard loom there was a commission: fabric for curtains, in a castle They weave traditional motifs as well as reproductions of historical fragments - like in this case on this warp -100m - they tied 15,000 knots! (I love the heddle eyes made of black ceramic)
Yesterday, a totally unexpected trip in the countryside ended in glory with a visit to Tessitura De Martini where we were welcomed by the owner, Stefania, who showed us around.
Everywhere I looked there was something interesting to see - every bobbin, every discarded thread or piece of fabric, everything! They were preparing the warp (43m) for a batch of orange cashmere scarves.
In one room they have a loom for the smaller production, while in the bigger one they have two Jacquard looms for silk damask. But that's for the next post!
