The Weaving Process
Fabrics are a part of our everyday lives. Whether it is the clothes we wear, the bedding we sleep in, the covered car seats of our cars or upholstery, it forms an important part of our day. The manufacturing of cotton fabrics start with the preparation of the yearn for weaving or knitting. The second step in the production process involves joining these individual threads together, this is known as weaving. After the fabric is woven is ready for the final step; processing. The fabric you see on a daily basis such as fresh sheets or the clothes you wear isn’t the freshly woven product but rather what comes after. The fresh off the loom greige is discolored and full of impurities. This is cleaned before being transformed into useful textiles. It is treated and bleached based on the colour of the textile using a variety of chemicals and cleaners to remove wax, oils and other naturally occurring element in fibers.
