At TÉLIO we are busy working away on our next collection, fall/winter 2014-2015! The upcoming season is saturated with luxurious deep shades along with soft pastels and bold brights which can add life to the fall season.
We use an array of threads and swatches to make a colour palette to work with each season and then we send these threads to our mills to create lab dips and decide which seasonal colours we are going to add to each new TÉLIO item. Lab dips are small swatches of fabric like the lace pieces (bottom right) that a mill makes as a test to see what a colour will look like on a specific fabric! You never know, you could have a beautiful gold coloured thread but when that is dyed on lace or mesh or wool; the colour could come out looking very differently! Lab dips help to eliminate any surprises when we receive the fabric production later on. It’s a small part of the big process that is creating a seasonal fabric collection!
