The making of

HOW WE WORK TO CREATE THE PERFECT FABRIC

We study the structure of new fabrics, we design the graphics of different articles and we create the colors shades. All this not only for the seasonal collections, but also and foremost for the exclusives of single clients; a team working involving our style department, the sales force and the designers of the fashion brands and maison, which allow the making of original fabrics, studied especially for them.

TREND RESEARCH

It is the first step to evaluate the street to go, which yarns to select, which colors to choose, for which graphics and for which constructions. A research which goes beyond fashion, because it looks at the world all over around: with an expert eye we watch the catwalks, but also shops and small open markets; we observe cool hunters and the most popular blogs, but also common people; we study the different innovations and tendencies also in art, cooking, cinema….in one word, only a particular sensibility for this all allows us to draw the guidelines of our collections.

STYLE RESEARCH

We study the structure of new fabrics, we design the graphics of different articles and we create the colors shades. All this not only for the seasonal collections, but also and foremost for the exclusives of single clients; a team working involving our style department, the sales force and the designers of the fashion brands and maison, which allow the making of original fabrics, studied especially for them.

SPINNING

From 60/1 to 300/2, going through 80/1 compact : the choice among the best yarns is a crucial moment, then for this reason we only purchase the best cottons in the world, both in quality and innovation terms. We pay high attention to the proper spinning phase, because only a precise combing and torsion can create those paramount yarns able to give us the best color appeal, the perfect quality of white and a particular pleasantness of touch. The yarns purchased are electronically checked in order to eliminate all imperfections and contaminations and they are made ready for the yarn dyeing phase.

YARN DYEING PHASE

The cones are dyed in the selected colors, with machineries able to support the different yarns quantities and, once dyed, they are carefully checked in order to verify the correct shade.

WARPING

Since ever, we perform with the most precise attention and the highest mastery the warping phase, which is needed to make the yarns parallel and put them on the beam: we believe that this is a crucial point in order to make later on a flawless weaving. We use warping machines selected among the state of the art devices, but also warping machines for short meters, called drum sample warping machines.

WEAVING

The weaving is the art of building a fabric: it is the result of mixing of warp yarns with weft yarns. We use more than one hundred and ten proprietary looms, all cutting edge generation, besides those belonging to our own historical partners. They are rapier looms and jacquard looms, in order to allow us to meet the uttermost level of market complexity. Since ever, we melt tradition and modernity, thanks to the use of highly technological machines and highly qualified personnel; we also have conscientious procedures aimed to complete a rigorous control of each single meter of grey fabric before it gets through the finishing.

FINISHING

Just like weaving is the hearth of fabrics, finishing is its soul! Through the finishing, indeed, personality and shine are added to the fabric. This result is reached with the bleaching and mercerizing, with the first process it is reached the desired shade of white, while the second modifies the cotton particle, giving it its own special shine. Beside all this, we make all those operations that can be done on a fabric in order to improve its appearance, its touch and its characteristics. These phases, called, finishing, can be for example raising, brushing or chintzing; on the base of the need, there are also special easy care or no iron treatments. We believe this to be a very delicate and complex phase, then we have chosen a deep and close collaboration with our finishing in order to assure the best results.

FABRICS PACKING

This phase is not a simple packaging: it allows us especially to be able to check every single meters before it is delivered to our clients.

QUALITY LABORATORY

The latest control is done on the finished fabrics internally by the quality laboratory, given that quality is one of our paramount values.

SPECIAL MANUFACTURING

Since several years we have broadened our offer, studying special fabrics, such as velvets, air-tex, jersey, piquet or plissè, which require specific manufacturing and finishing. We also have printed and coated fabrics, which are specifically prepared during the finishing phase to undergo the next manufacturing process. More precisely, the printing can be traditional printing (with cylinders), including etching “lexus” as well, in order to have the shirting classic designs, or inkjet, for the most complex and colored graphics. We study all over designs, but also engineered or panels on the base of the different requirements. Last but not least, we can arrange traditional printing and discharge printing, and pigment printing as well, in order to have double effects that gives a very particular characteristics.

TRADITIONS AND INNOVATIONS

The two annual collections constitute the concrete and coherent style proposals that Canclini presents to the fashion world. Always keeping faith with its own tradition, the company renews its fabrics each season. In a scenario of look-alike proposals that have become discouraged by mass competition, the offer of a clear stylistic imprint in an infinite range of variants is possible only thanks to careful choices of taste and modern production capacity.

QUALITY AND CERTIFICATIONS

For Canclini, quality is an absolute that requires constant verification and dialogue with the latest technologies and the expectations of the most demanding customers.
