Long live the bedroom revolution!
The fabric. The weave. Of everything we fill your bed with, the fabric is what you can see with your eyes. Everything else is hidden underneath it. The contribution of our horsetail hair, wool, wood and steel make to me quality of your sleep and wakefulness is not immediately apparent to the touch. The fabric is another story. The weave, made of superb 100% virgin cotton, will be appreciated by your skin every night.
The man behind Hastens' fine weaving technique never lived in Koping. In order to learn more about him, we have to travel back in time to the barricades of the French Revolution. Monsieur Joseph Marie Jacquard was a petty officer on the side of the uprising, and his gift to posterity was, appropriately enough, a particularly subversive loom.
The main difference between it and the traditional loom is that each individual warp thread can be controlled independently from the others. rarely from the movements of other threads up and down. And all this allows designers to create patterns in the fabric with outstanding freedom and quality.
Hastens brings the results to the bedroom. Jacquard's innovative loom from the eighteenth century lies behind all of Hastens' designs right up co the digital era. Thanks to the advanced jacquard weaving, we can make checks in four hues using only one blue and one white thread. But on our last design, the old Frenchman's weaving technique fell short. The pattern was quite simply too complicated. But that didn't stop us. When you have people who combine creative vision with experience, obsession and boundless patience, there is always a solution.
No sooner said than done. The weavers and our skilled craftsman pondered the problem together. After countless attempts and prototypes (each with new ways to combine the threads) we finally found the answer that took the jacquard loom to new heights. A technique that could make the Appaloosa's innovative graphic abstraction a reality, with the right colors and hues. A design for our time. A pattern that bestows a sense of movement and development.
And it was the same with Marwari. Here, we were also forced to further develop our weaving technique in order to get the quality we were looking for. If you look closely, you'll see that it's reminiscent of saddle cinches - a nod to Hastens' origin as a saddle-maker.
Together, they serve as evidence of Hastens' unrelenting willingness to make new strides.
The spirit of an old French revolutionary may live in all of us.
First, the fabric needs to rest. Then it is your turn.
Our fixation with fabric continues even after it is weaved and collected on a roll. We want to ensure that it is sewn and mounted with the utmost precision.
Therefore, once we have clipped the fabric for your top mattress, middle mattress or base, we hang it out for at least three days and relax. During this hiatus, tension or skewing will disappear. Only after this, do we work with the fabric.
What difference does waiting a few days make, if it means that your bed will be just a little, little, little, little bit better?
