One of the most significant characteristics that make our shirts to what they are today is their impeccable and high-performing fabric. To understand the complex weaving process, our journey took us to Bergamo, Italy, where we visited Albini, one of the world’s finest shirt fabric weavers and a long-term partner to Eton.
The laboratory plays a crucial role in ensuring the fabrics final performance and look. They control the raw and natural yarns to ensure the right weight, diameter and shade as well as the dyed yarn’s uniformity, continuity over time and fastness to rubbing.
Now, the greige fabric is visually controlled for any defects such as naps or colour in-constancy. The approved fabric is then sent to one of our finishing facilities in Switzerland and Germany where it is treated with our special crease-resistant finish and controlled once more before being send to our production facilities.
