Cotton is one of the first fibers used to make textiles because of its exceptional qualities. It is soft, flexible, durable, absorbent, breathable and totally versatile: cool or warm. It is one of the few fibres that, depending on the thickness of its yarn, can be used both in summer, fine and cool, and in winter, thick and warm. Mercerized cotton is a fiber with a specific treatment that gives it a moderate shine and a great resistance to wear and abrasion.
Silk is a sophisticated, soft, strong, durable fibre with a satin-like sheen that makes it totally unmistakable. It is breathable and has thermo-regulating properties that make it very suitable for keeping the skin warm, especially in the neck area, and its use is very versatile depending on how it is worn. Es a noble fiber of recognized quality. Our silk, has a slightly thicker yarn and this makes it cool or warm, depending on how you wear it and that has a different feel to the industrial.

COMMON FEATURES IN OUR SUSTAINABLE LUXURY FABRICS.
This piece is unique, designed and handwoven by us on a wooden loom, moved by our hands and feet, strand by strand handwoven with the best quality natural fiber, the best to wear in contact with your skin and taking care of all aspects, so that you have a piece, timeless, durable and of great quality.
All its finishes are made by hand. There are no knots in the warp (vertical threads) or weft (horizontal threads), the splices are inserted by hand into the selvages with a needle.
We wash it by hand with natural soap, to verify the quality of the fiber, the dyeing and its final measurement, all the pieces handwoven on the artisanal loom shrink in their first wash because the fibers reposition themselves, then they do not shrink any more. And to finish we iron it by hand with steam to give it a better presentation and you can appreciate all its qualities.
