The jarapa is a completely hand-crafted product made entirely from materials recycled from the textile industry.
The jarapa is a completely hand-crafted product made entirely from materials recycled from scraps of fabric of the textile industry. Our product is made mainly of cotton, which sometimes gets to be almost 100% of the material composition.
The loom and the manufacturing methods belong to a tradition started in the 12th century and have been preserved by the craftsmen, with few modifications, until present day.
This is how we create a product with a unique character and a great added value.
The raw material that we use is obtained by recovering and processing textile wastes, such as the clippings left over by the manufacture industry of curtains, bed covers, linen, etc.
After the recycling process the strips can be woven with the traditional manufacturing method passed down through the generations, following the design patterns created by our own craftsmen.
The determination to improve and evolve the product has led us to the looping line. Going a little further back in the recovery process we start the production from the threads left over by the textile industry, as to achieve a more uniform raw material in terms of colour shades that results in a more even final product.
