Little snowflake in your red cape, when will you come falling down? - KARL MAYER Textilmaschinenfabrik GmbH

Christmas is a time of secrets and promises, presents and surprises. And the purpose of the cape shown on this page is to spread joy and happiness. This short, flared coat features a rich profusion of flowers on a delicate, open tulle ground. The flowers protrude from the fabric and are surrounded by finely hatched, broad contours made from shiny polyamide yarns and filled in with different mesh constructions. The result is an attractive floral mix which rises out of the fabric ground almost three dimensionally. The striking, dense leaf designs are embedded within the three-dimensional flowers and are scattered almost arbitrarily across the filigree lace ground. The pointed leaves almost look as if they have been drawn with a brush to give the fabric a voluminous appearance. The result is a delicate fabric which, with its cosy, cuddly look, attracts attention when worn during the cold season of the year. However, this hint of spring in the midst of cold, dark winter also has a purpose: with its red and white colour palette and classic coat design, the cape becomes a symbol of Christmas when worn by ladies driving reindeer and bringing gifts. Perfect for wearing in December, the garment also has a decorative collar made from a warp-knitted spacer textile. This snow-white 3D construction with its discreet pattern creates a feeling of fullness and warmth, and forms an effective contrast to the filigree, all-over lace design. The lace fabric used in this somewhat unconventional work attire for Mother Christmases was produced on a Textronic® Lace machine. This multi-bar jacquard raschel machine is perfect for producing high-end stretch and non-stretch lace, and therefore plays its own part in bringing comfort and joy on Christmas Eve. And the machine itself is also quite a surprise. This high-performance Textronic® Lace machine produces top-quality products and offers an extensive range of patterning possibilities, an exceptional level of productivity, and a high degree of user friendliness.
