It is with an objective of transparency that we have been working for months on the implementation of the traceability associated with our products.
We can now share with you behind the scenes of the manufacture of your household linen to encourage more responsible consumption and production methods.
What is traceability
The purpose of traceability is to offer the consumer a discovery of the production origins of his products.
Thanks to a QR code, you will have access to the entire creation cycle of the scanned product.
WHERE DOES THE RAW MATERIAL OF YOUR HOUSEHOLD LINEN COME FROM?
WHERE WAS IT MADE?
YOU NOW HAVE THE ANSWERS TO YOUR QUESTIONS.
It is in our style office, located in the heart of the Roanne and Lyon textile basins, that our stylists-graphic designers imagine and design the Carré Blanc collections. Choice of raw materials, selection of suppliers and certifications: our products are designed and manufactured to meet the quality and know-how requirements of the brand.
Knitting is the process of making the mesh from the yarns. It consists of the interlacing of loops of threads.
The confection is the stage which allows to assemble the fabrics and to realize the finishes of the product. It is also referred to by the term “made in”.
Weaving is the process of making fabric from threads. It consists of the perpendicular interlacing of threads. Terry cloth uses 2 warp threads and 1 weft thread. The tension of one of the warp threads is lower, thus forming the loop with each passage of the weft thread.
Dyeing is an operation that consists of immersing the fabric in a vat to color the whole of a fabric in a uniform manner.
This step makes it possible to move on from the raw materials to the creation of the yarn. For example, freshly harvested cotton must be cleaned and combed to align the fibers, which allow several filaments to be gathered into a roving. This will be rolled into thread by twisting, then the thread itself will be wound onto a spool, to start the weaving, knitting stage.
After weaving, the purpose of finishing is to embellish and bring new properties to the fabric by modifying its feel, appearance or performance.
This step will give added value to the product either decoratively or technically. For example: the work of printed or embroidered patterns that decorate the products or a specific wash that brings softness and comfort, or even sanforizing to bring dimensional stability etc...
The first element of a fabric is the fiber. There are natural fibers of plant (cotton, linen) or animal (silk, wool) origin, synthetic fibers (polyester) and artificial fibers (bamboo viscose). All these materials each have different properties to meet the different expectations, desires and uses of the consumer.
