In the Making: Linens
We went behind the scenes at one of our luxury jacquard linen providers last week, so keep on reading to find out more about how they manage to keep our linen so sumptuously soft…
- How are these products made?
Jacquard woven fabric is produced on a special weaving loom fitted with a jacquard patterning mechanism. This device enables the individual selection and lifting of any of the warp threads (which run vertically along all linen fabrics), allowing a wide variety of complex patterns and designs to be produced. This helps us to make so many different patterns.
Jacquard woven fabrics can produce a waffle weave effect and other thick and three-dimensional textures which create material that you can really ‘sink your fingers into’. We are extremely focused on trendy patterns, colours and exquisite weaving techniques – these all help us provide the best product. Also, the quality of the yarns and the finishing processes allow us to be one step ahead of the competition.
- What types of machinery do you use?
Since starting to work with F&B in 1999, we have only used traditional jacquard weaving machines to make our linens. Instead of many different machines, our linens are made by the hands of the people who work here. That’s what we value most. When anyone buys a duvet cover from us, they’re buying something made with care and love.
These linens are all made in Portugal, including our Fleur Damask, Palms, Azulejo and Diamond range - you can see them all on our linens page.
See you soon,
Feather & Black.
