The story began when Jaume from Teixidors traveled to the French Alps to visit the farm Macomerinos. There Manu and Corine fleece the best merino wool in Europe: white, length of 85 mm, diameter of 19 microns, and the curl of the best merino. Actually, to find wool with these characteristics you have to search in Australia or New Zealand. As a result of the effort and the passion for their work, Manu and Corine have this wool in Noyers-sur-Jabron, only a few hours away from TEIXIDORS.
Teixidors, loyal to its own social project and its aim to use proximity fibers (european), presented at Maison & Objet Paris a new plaid: EARTH, made of cotton (60%) and silk (40%). As the name suggests, is a tribute to Earth, using both vegetable and animal fibers. Its texture wants to reproduce the vibration of the natural elements and the five colors available reminds us that as well: metal, earth, air, wood and ashes. The cotton used has 100% of traceability, grown in Andalusia, with transformation processes 100% local, in collaboration with the company Cotó Roig (www.cotoroig.cat/category/cultivo/). A plaid/throw for spring-summer, which incorporates the color profiles so characteristic in some Teixidors' products. A plaid to combine with maxiplaids and bedspreads in linen. In the next months, Earth will be also available as cushion or bedspread.
