fabric cutting

Manufacturing process of kitchen cloth.
That's right, simply cutting the cloth.
Usually, it is 4 sides because it is cut into a square from a wide cloth,
Shuttle linen is a shuttle loom, so it has selvedges and only two sides are cut.
The width is 35 cm (in the case of kitchen cloth) at the time of weaving, so you can also make use of the ears.

If you cut these two sides roughly, it should take less than 10 seconds.

However, at Pint!, this cutting is done very carefully.

What is polite and why is it polite?
In addition to texture and design, Pint! wants to pursue functionality as a tool above all.
I tried an experiment with a sewing craftsman.

I cut two sides of the same fabric into the following two patterns.
1. Roughly cut straight (speedy. Usually this cut)
2. Remove one thread and cut (almost) completely along the weft (requires time and patience)
and sew this.
It looks the same. Since it is folded and sewn, the cut opening is hidden.

Here are the results after 3 washes.

The upper side of the screen is 2. It's better to remove one of the.
There is some shrinkage in the fibers after washing, but there is not much twisting.
On the other hand, the lower side is 1. Roughly cut version.
There is also shrinkage of the fiber itself, but there was a lot of twisting.

Of course, even if you cut it roughly, it won't break, and the difference may be insignificant.

We really want to make the best use of the materials and create products that can be used for a long time and are excellent as tools.
Looking at this result, I can't help but cut it with a single sword.

It takes many times longer, and the appearance after sewing does not change.

However, because we are using the best fabric carefully woven by craftsmen,
What Pint! can do now is to make products without sacrificing that goodness.
With the Jielde light on hand, I am facing one weft thread.

I will hold the scissors tonight as well, praying that the kitchen cloth will be a companion for a long time to those who use it!
