You betcha the time has arrived, The final piece of the puzzle of my visit to the refined Adamley in the heart of the Macclesfield countryside. Indeed I have definitely established the point that writing this journey in the form of a series doesn't perceive a great perception so next time it will just be one VERRRYYY long post for your eyes to feast on. To be honest I don't know if whether the chance to visit another factory will ever happen, I've emailed a few local manufacturing plants with outcomes of 0 (REPEAT - 0 REPLIES) in comparison to head office at the Adamley - Quick response done & dusted. Unless you own a pug called Gladys, bleach-blonde, american and your second-skin is Rick Owens; No company will let you into their secret world of 'How It's Made' (*little shout out to the tv programme - please make a clothes verison and I will host it)
The next stage of our visit was the dark/light room where they engrave the screening boards, I didn't pay much attention to this part of the trip. Basically these two men just give the board a wash and stick it in a machine and leave it to dry under UV conditions. I was more concerned of the out-dated pin-up girl poster wearing a futuristic swimsuit airbrushed to THE MAXX as if she was an oiled-up female wrestler on WWF.
After that little detour we arrived promptly at a large drafty room full of silk ready to go on their little auspices to be worn as beautiful garments. I'm shocked how fast things can travel these days (I know, nothin' new) but I'm scared how I can buy 2-day old fish from my local tesco that has travelled all the way from the tropical seas of Indonesia. That reminds me, Can anyone suggest ideas where I can blog aboard? Visiting my grandparents in Manila and they other possess a computer nor Wifi - My cousins do but I think it would be kind of irritating as they most likely wanting to play a video games instead of watching me write.
and thats about it guys, after drying the silk its first soaked into a chemical to prevent the ink running when water touches it. Bashed up by rollers to soften it and DONE! Left in a hot room to dry and its completed. Like to thank Joanne and my secret photographer who will and always will remain anonymous.............
