Avanza investigación de nuevos materiales para plantados ecológicos y no enmallantesNovember 16th, 2017
Las investigaciones continúan en busca de un material para la elaboración de tela, que sea resistente al agua salada. Se han adelantado pruebas con cabuya y yute, pero la durabilidad no es la deseada. Actualmente, se están efectuando pruebas con Abacá, sin embargo, su dureza causa temor en los telares existentes, ya que eleva las probabilidades de laceraciones en las manos durante el proceso de tejido. Hoy estamos en negociaciones con telares de las comunas aledañas a la materia prima. Estimamos llegar a un acuerdo durante este mes.
