Einführung in die Kunst des Webens von Cotonea Bio-Textilien

Weaving the organic cotton yarns

Cotonea organic textiles are woven in our own weaving factory in the Czech Republic and by our partners. Best organic quality and the highest standards for natural textiles are of high importance.

The weaving factory - the place where fabric takes shape

  • Hunderte Garnspulen auf Zettelgatter für das Weben von Bio Textilien
    Warp creel with yarn spindles: to produce fabrics using yarn, hundreds of yarn spindles are mounted onto the warp creel. Each thread is monitored closely, the machine stops automatically when it registers an error.
  • Bio Garnfäden werden automatisiert geschlichtet und präzise auf eine Walze aufgerollt
    A fabric consists of longitudinal threads (warp) and transverse threads (weft). The warp threads which is known in its simplest form from a child’s weaving frame, is produced by warp machines and sizing machines before weaving. For a good warp thread, the threads of exactly the same length must be wound very evenly onto the warp creel.
  • Große fertige Zettelwalzen nach der Schlichtung
    There are now perfectly aligned warp threads on the so-called warp cylinders. These can now be used to weave the Cotonea organic textiles.
  • Mehrere Walzen mit Bio Garn werden benötigt zur Herstellung von Bio Textilien
    To attain the necessary number of warp threads, a number of warp cylinders are brought together. Every thread breakage must be dealt with. For the threads to withstand the weaving process, they must be prepared using a starch finishing.

The threads used, the technical process and finesse, and the way of crossing the threads - this is called “binding” - determine the characteristics such as the weight, feel and look of the fabric. Basic bindings such as canvas, twill and satin are well-known. However, there are uncountable varieties of these. Satin is also a type of weave binding, not a mark of quality.

We weave most fabrics in our own weaving factory in the Czech Republic and also use weaving machines there, that have the lowest energy consumption per woven meter. All work stages, from the twine to the finished fabric are performed by trained specialists. Every day, countless yarn spindles produce fabrics for organic bedding or other Cotonea products. In order to paint a picture: one square metre of fabric for our typical organic satin bedding contains 8,400 metres of thread segments, that is 8.4 kilometres of organic yarn.

  • Herstellung der Cotonea Bio Textilien auf der Webmaschine
    With the help of modern weaving machines, countless yarn threads produce high-quality organic fabrics. Depending on the machine settings the number of warp and weft threads can be changed to influence the print and appearance of the fabric strips.
  • Fertig gewobene Bio Textilien werden auf aufgerollt
    The fabric is freed of overlying fluff and protruding fibres. It is brushed and sheared before being rolled up.
  • Das Werk der Cotonea Weberei für Bio Textilien in Tschechien
    The Cotonea weaving factory is located near Nachod in the Czech Republic. Here light calico, sturdy cretonnes, fine satins, and fine threaded poplin and even heavy flannel and molleton fabrics can be woven.
