Italian weavers with passion for denim.

shuttle-loom

Today Melker and I visited a small denim weaver in Italy that makes some of the denim that is used in the LAB AW09. This was very, very exciting. The shuttle looms were over 60 years old and very slow. Instead of the 18 meter fabric per hour that modern weaving machines can produce these shuttle looms makes three meters per hour. And they are only half as wide as modern machines, 75 centimetres instead of 150. The result is extremely beautiful denim. Sometimes soft and sensitive, sometimes heavy and rich, but always full of passion. This workshop has a thing for experimenting with material other then cotton. In LAB AW09 you will find both cotton mixed with cashmere and hemp.
