The longevity and beauty of your favorite home product is determined by the quality of the material. That’s why the materials we use are of the highest possible quality. For cotton, which is in most of our products, we use the finest cotton that has been cleaned, carded and spun.

• Cleaning: The raw cotton is cleaned to separate impurities, seed coats and short lint from the cotton.
• Carding: This is when the cotton is detangled and cleaned again. The practice can be likened to brushing one’s hair.
• Spinning: The cotton is then spun into the desired fineness.

Before the yarns are sent off to the vertical mills for dyeing, weaving and knitting, they’re boiled to get rid of any residue from the process above. The cotton yarns are also bleached to better absorb dyes and can later be mercerized to achieve strong, lustrous and soft products. If we decide on using a cotton mix for our products, it’s possible to mix the other fiber in the spinning process.

Lint from several bales are mixed and blended together to provide a uniform mix of fiber properties.

The web of fibers is drawn through a funnel-shaped device called a trumpet, providing a soft, rope-like strand called a sliver.

Up to eight strands of sliver are blended together in the drawing process. Roving frames draw the sliver adding a gentle twist and making the sliver thinner. The strands, now called the roving, go through ring spinning machines which further draw the roving twisting it tighter and thinner until it reaches the desired thickness.
