The thread is transformed
The business philosophy of Tessitura Giaquinto cannot fail to be found in the choice of raw materials and their processing.
The yarns used to weave all the creations are Egyptian Perlè Cotton and Yarn-dyed Linen in Dantrene. It is the top in terms of non-toxicity and resistance to discoloration, as natural fibers.
Thus, to the touch Giaquinto products are velvety and in addition to being very resistant, the colors of the yarns make them bright and iridescent to the eye. The fabrics are made with the Jacquard technique, named after the inventor who built the machine, with which it was possible to create ornate designs on the fabrics, intertwining the warp and weft threads, moved and moved according to the sequences dictated by a perforated cardboard, as if it were a data reading card, which is decoded by the Jacquard machine.
Subsequently, the processing requires at least seven steps.
The preparation of the warp on the warp;
The assembly on the frame of the warp, called armor. The rear loading of the beam (roller on which the yarn is wound). The passage of the warp threads in the heddle stitches, (element of the loom that serves to raise and lower the warp threads alternating them). The passage in the slots of the loom reed and finally the binding to the front beam.
The opening of the pass.
The insertion of the weft, (the weaving), with the shuttle, (organ that contains the spool, that is the reel of thread);
The beating with the comb of the loom, to compact the fabric, bringing the threads together;
Warp unwinding and fabric rolling;
Disassembly of the piece, once the warp is finished.
The warp is the set of threads that together with those of the weft contribute to forming a fabric.
The warp threads are stretched on the loom, tied to the rear beam and passed through the meshes of the healds and to the slits of the comb to be tied to the front beam, they are those (if I look at a weaving work) vertical, parallel to the selvedges.
Opening they create an opening called step that allows the shuttle to pass with the weft thread.
The weft is the set of threads that together with those of the warp contribute to forming a fabric.
If you look at a weaving work on the loom, the weft threads are those arranged horizontally, which go from one selvedge to the other.
The weft is inserted in the warp shed by a shuttle or spool, which, passing from one side of the loom to the other, unrolls the yarn that is beaten by the reed to bring it closer to the weft thread of the previous row, thus one row after the another a cloth is woven.
