For the 16-shaft warp faced fabrics the colours & textures are designed on a cardboard reeling. The patterns for these fabrics are designed using the computer.  Then the yarn is wound onto the loom and threaded, ready for weaving.

 

The weft-faced fabric is designed on a 4-shaft loom, balancing colour, value, and texture while weaving and using up to 20 different yarns in one jacket.
