  • What is the process for making a custom fabric with you?
    • When we accept a custom fabric order we begin with either the source of the fiber or the spinning mill.
    • After the fiber is spun to the desired specs for the project, we send the yarns to be plied (all warps have a plied weft to withstand the abrasion of our looms).
    • After the fibers are plied there is the option to
      • Have the yarn dyed
      • Weave a natural fabric
    • After the fibers have been plied and potential dyed the yarn is brought to our mill here in Mather, CA to be woven on one of our looms.
    • Once the weaving is completed the raw fabric is sent to be finished (wash, scour and framed).
      • This stage can also include:
        • Fabric dyeing
        • Fabric Printing
      • From here the finished fabric is sent to the customer.
