Anuprerna - In a Nutshell
Our Production Process, from initial design to final product, is the embodiment of our commitment to building a transparent supply chain in what we do. The art of hand weaving, in Bengal, is an ancient craft from times when fabrics were being exported to Roman and Chinese empires. The hot and humid indigenous climate inspired artisans for fabric manufacturing to produce the most delicate and translucent fabrics.
Swatch Reference & Product Design: For new fabric sampling, our designers will come up with new hues, color, and weave construction to develop a range of collections. We also analyze the design provided by our clients to understand the construction and color. We then source a suitable yarn, which matches the requirements of the desired product; the fabric must be durable, aesthetically pleasing, follows exact color & construction, and have a great tactile finish quality. Depending on the crafts we work on the process differs accordingly.
Yarn Processing & Dyeing: Once the suitable yarn is decided, it is processed to be dyed in the desired colours as per the chosen design in our in-house dye unit. Upen Sarkar & Ashoka Sarkar are making sure the yarns are dyed uniformly.
We have been strictly using Azo-free reactive GOTS certified dye brands to get better fastness and low-impact dyes on either yarn, fabrics, or other textile products. Once dyed, the yarn is thoroughly inspected to ensure durability, colour fastness, and several other factors.
Inspection & Finishing: The textiles once woven are dispatched to our textile studio by our weavers for final processing & inspection. The inspection consists of the fabric being rolled over a lightbox to highlight any faults that may have occurred during weaving. Raju Pan carefully checks the fabrics for these. The faults can be sometimes mended with needle and thread and sometimes can be instructed to be modified post-analysis of the first prototype. Once passed, it is further washed & processed to improve the tactile quality before dispatch.
