Our weaving expertise
Equipped with a high-performance fleet of 35 plain weaving machines and Jacquard looms, HTH masters a rare variety of luxury weaving, combining innovation with exceptional craftsmanship.
From silk weaving to cashmere weaving, from Lurex to noble horsehair, our workshops produce a wide range of textile fibres for large and small runs. Plain, jacquard and hand-woven fabric: we offer our customers, fashion designers and producers of upholstery fabrics, infinite possibilities for creating bespoke and extremely high-quality fabric.
Warp printing, a technical feat
Based on the valuable expertise of the craftspeople in HTH’s workshops, warp printing combines the art of silk-weaving with that of flat frame printing. The unweaving and reweaving of the warp of a fabric printed on a flat frame is a rare and exacting technique and creates extraordinary blurred and flowing effects.
Velours au Sabre, the jewel of tailoring
The Velours au Sabre is a unique technique used for creating exceptional textiles. Working on double warp duchess satin, the artisan delicately cuts the uppermost satin surface with a blade or sabre. Advancing just a few centimetres each day, the thread is straightened to form a bespoke velvet motif.
Based on HTH’s renowned expertise which has been passed down over the decades, our workshops enjoy complete freedom in using Lurex for their textile designs.
Horse hair weaving – unique in the world
Horse hair is a noble, wear-free and silky fibre used in Upholstery and Bag fabrics. In the small village of Challes, our workshop –a worthy heir of a patent in 1787 – still weaves horse hair by hand, strand by strand, following the tradition, on 19th century jacquard looms. This exceptional weaving technique produces several metres of fabric a day.
