Every month begins with a visit to Hércules where Francisco, who has been working there for more than 20 years, helps the team choose the right threads based on their thickness and quality. The threads are subsequently taken be gummed to acquire its texture. When this process is finished, the thread is stored on a giant steel reel. This way it prevents from tangling. Later, the thread is cut and rolled into a big "Oaxaca cheese" type of ball to make it easier to bring into the workshop and start with the creative design process.
