Orta La Suite

Our European tour
starts here

What is Orta La Suite?

Orta embarked on a crazy project a year and a half ago! To launch a 100% European fabric. An idea that was born on Gauthier, our co-founder's, hospital bed. After the diagnosis of his leukaemia, alone in his hospital room, he decided that he wanted to leave his mark, to do something that, in the end, really made sense.

It was from this situation that this wonderful idea was born. Viscose became his second great struggle.

Come along and we'll tell you how the Orta La Suite range came about.

The creation

Orta La Suite starts with Gauthier's crazy project but also with the drawing and creation of our team in Belgium. Find out what goes on behind the scenes and how our beautiful 100% European creations come to life.

Germany & Austria

Fibre
production

In order for the fabric of your piece to have that qualitative aspect both to the touch as well as visually, there are a few steps to go through. One could compare the making of the fabric to a recipe, and for this recipe to have the desired effect, years of experience and know-how are needed. This is why our path led us to Germany and Austria. Each place has made each type of yarn its own specialty.

In order to show you the whole process in pictures, our video journey first took us to Austria to a beautiful village with the same name as its factory: Lenzing. Here, no apocalyptic industrial zone but a magnificent and transparent lake where the water is drinkable (the Attersee lake), and forests as far as the eye can see that are full of life. In short, a fauna and flora worthy of the best seaside resorts. For two days, we followed the transformation of wood into fibre, from the felling of the tree to the fibre bale.

It takes two different threads to create your unique piece, and for that we went to Germany. At Enka, Dr. Till Boldt and Mr. Yasutaro bring us into their production where they create a continuous filament with a unique know-how. The expertise and the machines used in this process are ancestral models, if the company were to disappear, the know-how would disappear with it (and we think that that would be a real shame).

Weaving

A few kilometres from Barcelona, at Sedatex, our adventure continues. They have been spinning here since 1886, and for Orta, the company has set up an exclusive loom, capable of assembling our two yarns, both 100% Made in Europe.

Finishing
(stabilisation and printing)

Welcome to Bergamo, at Europizzi. Here our raw fabric roll is stabilised to obtain a flat material. The viscose is immersed in a soda bath and then washed several times at 60°C and 90°C. A short distance away, we visit Lisa, Europizzi's partner. Our 100% European viscose is printed by them with a quality that is amongst the best in the world, while remaining absolutely irreproachable for the planet.

Manufacturing

From day 1 at Orta, we have been very close to our workshops, and of course our production has been done entirely in these places. All our pieces come from these places, run by Laeticia (in France), Isabel, Marco, Miguel and many others. So many people who are so important to us. Because we are always looking for an excuse to visit our workshops, we headed there to show you the final realisation of the pieces of our Orta La Suite range.
