TRK 1000 HOURS behind the scenes
Because every meter of material takes tens of hours to produce and we have to travel throughout the whole republic to receive it.
Because it takes a long time to properly and thoroughly search for a waste that has the potential of becoming a beautiful material.
Because we want to emphasize that these are demi-couture pieces that take a lot of time and energy to produce and bring to perfection.
Because we simply love it and 1000 hours does not equal only the length of the production but also the amount of love we put into the whole process
From the beginning:
- In factories, we collect and buy waste wool, which is no longer usable for them.
- We clean, sort and prepare the wool for carding.
- The carding takes place in Liberec from where we eventually collect the wool. Its texture is now very similar to cotton candy.
- We prepare materials and compose patterns, which is probably the longest and most creative part of the whole process.
- When the patterns are ready, we pre-felt them by hand.
- We go to Netex where the material is properly felt and finalized.
- Now we can begin to cut, sew, and produce.
- Your new coat or jacket is born.
On the e-shop, you can find individual styles/cuts of jackets and coats. Some are already ready to shop, but most are made to order. We will prepare new styles for you as a part of "TRK 1000 HOURS" with each seasonal collection.
How does selecting a piece from "1000 HOURS" work?
- You choose the cut (we always make variants for men individually)
- You choose the material, either from the fabrics that we have in the studio or we agree that we will create a unique material especially for you.
- You choose the size or variant made to measure, which means that we’ll tailor a chosen piece to fit your needs perfectly.
- When choosing from existing materials, production takes about 3 weeks. If we make the material to measure, the production takes about 2-3 months.
- We’re both happy and excited.
I also cannot fail to mention my partners without whom nothing would be possible, even the sun wouldn’t rise. Netex, Departement of non-woven textiles at Technical University in Liberec, Nová Mosilana and Lanatex.
If you want to come by, try the jacket on and look at the fabrics we have in stock, I will be most happy to welcome you by prior arrangement or we can send you pictures.
