Inside The Factory
The base for woolen shawls is a high quality fine fleece wool, of which the weavers produce different kinds of fabric. A particular airness and ecological purity of fabric allows not only to save a hair style, but to protect a hair against "the hotbed effect".
As soon as a design is affirmed, to the work on it are attached colorists. Their task is to make up recipes of print colors, trying to get as exact as possible reproduction of author's design executed in gouache, by means of textile dyestaffs. The main difficulty of this work is that the true color will be seen only after a steam treatment (this operation is necessary for a solid fixation of dye-staffs on the wool fibre) and a washing. Thus, a colorist is forced to make a lot of test dyings before a final recipe will be obtained.Every design is printed in several versions (colors). New color solutions are proposed by an artist and colorists, and also are affirmed by a special commission after a severe selection. Depending on difficulty of the design there are different ways of design drawing on the fabric. Printing is realized on manual print tables and on many-colors printing machines. The most responsible operations are executed by hand.
Long ago sinked into oblivion time, when shawls were printed by means of wooden blocks. Since some decades ago shawls in the factory have being produced by screen print method.
