Custom Robe Design, Fabric Quality, Valueable Equipment & Tools
Our Robe Design Process
According to the customers measurement we adjust our pattern to fit that
individual either by adding inches or reducing inches; lengthening or shortening.
Basic fabric is chosen according to specification sheet; accent fabric is chosen
according to specification sheet.
Fabric and lining are laid up for cutting; pattern is laid up and marked for
adjustments; double checked usually by another individual.
Robe along with two copies of the customers measurement sheet are placed in
clear plastic bags and taken to the sewing department along with one copy
of the specification sheet. (one bag has the body of the robe the second bag
has the accent pieces (ie: collar; cuffs; pleats; lining etc.).
Sewer sews the garment. Sometimes two seamstress are involved in the construction
one preps the other is responsible to total construction. The finisher checks robe for
quality measures robe finishes (buttons etc.) presses prepares for shipment.
Robe Fabric Quality
The fabric we use in the body of the majority of our robes is Vita-crepe.
It's medium weight for comfort; very little little wrinkle to this fabric;
travels well; it's a breathable fabric allowing the body to cool naturally.
The lining is a cotton-base pongee the coolest most comfortable fabric
next to your skin.
Most of our brocades are ecclesiastical traditional clergy brocades made of quality fabrics
mostly from Italy. Our rhinestones, tassels embroidery jeweled buttons zippers are of the finest quality.
Our seams are double stitched in all stress areas. Hems are straight stitched to eliminate the fear of heel snags.
