Presentation on theme: "What’s so special about This tle Hill? After all we can get it made in……… TEXTILE DESIGNERS WORKING WITH AN AMERICAN WEAVING MILL TO PRODUCE CUSTOM FABRIC?"— Presentation transcript:
WHAT TURNS US ON? Meeting challenges Developing new fabrics Thinking projects thru from start to finish Being environmentally conscious Getting to work with creative people Doing things that we are told cant be done And making it work economically
WHY WORK WITH US? (THE GOOD THINGS) We create hand samples with many options We do short runs (20 yards) We work closely with you to develop a product We advise you how to make an idea commercially viable We are weavers with great loom capacity
BUT YOU NEED TO KNOW (THE TOUGH THINGS): We are expensive It takes a long time You must be prepared to commit to 1-2 years of development before you have a product to work with
BECAUSE WOVEN IS THE LUXURY END OF THE SPECTRUM More luxurious than knitted Or felted Or printed even on silk… Because it has many more options It is more expensive so…… If you are spending the time and money to develop custom you are already in the expensive market……
HOW IT WORKS You have an idea We ask for your absolute best list of parameters We discuss fibers and yarns We order appropriate yarns or have them made We weave hand samples You choose some version We weave more hand samples Until we get it right and ready for a short run….
OUR EQUIPMENT IS UNIQUE TODAY IN THE TEXTILE INDUSTRY Re purposed looms Using old technology that is more adaptable We are innovative “short order cooks” We make the looms do what they need to do We have good welders, and lots of parts!
