TEXTILE No. collaborates with skilled craftsmen in Europe who machine weave high quality textiles in natural linen under sustainable conditions.
Carlander took her first weaving lessons from Jacqueline de la Baume Dürrbach, who collaborated with Picasso on tapestries. This experience had an immediate impact on how Carlander's work would and continues to evolve.
Club Masters of Linen membership guarantees high standards, authenticity and 100% European traceability.
In March 2016, TEXTILE No. became a certified member of Masters of Linen —an exclusive club, headquartered in Paris, consisting of 28 textile companies, spinners, weavers and knitters, who guarantee 100% European traceability in their textiles, from plant to yarn to fabric. For the spinning mills, this implies a guarantee that they use at least 98% scutched linen fibre grown in Europe and dew-retted on the ground in the growing area.
TEXTILE No. meets requirements of industrial and commercial laundry. In the designer's own words...
"From 2016, my weaving will be based excusively on linen from a certified Masters of Linen spinning mill in Italy. The mill was founded in 1873 and is one of the oldest in Europe. The yarn is spun of scutched linen fibres grown in the north-west of France, since flax from this area is generally recognised as being of exceptional quality. They also dye my yarns using a special technique that can be laundered at up to 60 degrees Celsius, and which meets the requirements for industrial laundry, for example when my textiles are used in restaurants."
