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!
