Last week Chase, Molly and Rachel visited one of our favourite domestic partners. While down there, they got to look through their French archives consisting of stacks and piles of fabrics both paper and woven, dating back to the beginning of the century. Our design team was in awe!

Warp bobbins as far as the eye can see! These yarns are on a structure called a creel which holds the bobbins while a giant warp is being spun. 

Rainbow warp yarns running off the creel to the velvet loom.
