- *What is piece-dyeing?
- Piece-dyeing is a process whereby gray goods are produced first by using raw yarns, and the fabric is dyed after the weaving process. Compared to yarn- dyeing, which will be described later, piece -dyeing permits a larger amount of fabric to be processed at a higher speed. Most of piece-dyed products are soft and smooth.
In the Fujiyoshida district of Yamanashi Prefecture, yarn-dyed Bemberg linings are produced. This area has been famous for a silk production for a long time and the production of Bemberg linings started here around 1950.
- *What is yarn-dyeing?
- Yarn-dyeing is a process whereby raw yarns are dyed first, and then fabrics are woven with the combination of colored yarns. While production with this method takes longer than piece-dyeing, it enables the creation of a wide variety of patterns, which is impossible with any other method. Because the yarns are twisted, yarn-dyed fabric has a firm and resilient touch.
