“Inspecting is something you do with passion”

Fabrics that have been designed and manufactured with such passion, need to be inspected in the same
way. Inspecting is something you do with passion.

We are the last to get our hands on the fabrics before they leave Lienesch. Literally, because everything is checked by hand. We check the fabrics on our special light table for the smallest irregularities, variations in colour, marks or tears. It is meticulous work.
I am part of a team of fabric inspectors responsible for checking the quality of fabrics before they are shipped to the client. Our team consists of professionals with many years of experience. There is no specific training for inspections. It is a craft that is in your blood and which develops by examining kilometre upon kilometre of fabric. We work in two teams, which means my alarm clock regularly goes off at 5:00 a.m. No problem at all. I believe I don’t even have a snooze button on my alarm clock.

When you see some of the fabrics that are created. So incredibly beautiful. You can see the work that must have gone into producing the finished product. You can see it and feel it. It gives you extra motivation to deliver a high standard of work. The whole team shares this vision. On a daily basis, we work with the most beautiful products, made by a team full of passion. A team which we as fabric inspectors are proud to be a part of.

If the fabrics pass the tests without issues, we attach an approval label on the packaging. The label also indicates the end destination, so we can see that the fabrics go across the whole world. The idea that fabrics checked by me end up hanging in a window on the other side of the world is simply amazing.
