TECHNICAL WEAVE

Rolls‑Royce reimagines carbon fibre with a colourful twist.

Technical Weave is Bespoke’s sparkling interpretation of carbon fibre, accented with tinted strands of aluminium thread. In contrast to the monochromatic palette typically associated with the material, Technical Weave puts on a colourful display. The dazzling new feature, photographed here with LED lighting, was crafted in Mazarine Blue, Brenner Green, Austin Yellow and St. James Red. This can be exclusively seen across the fascia of each car within the Sportive Collection, developed for our Middle Eastern clientele.

Technical Weave required twelve months of intensive development by the Bespoke team.

Since its automotive debut in 1981, carbon fibre has tantalised luxury car owners with its intricate pattern display and unrivalled performance. Though its benefits are many, working with carbon fibre is an infamously pernickety endeavour. If handled without careful attention, the raw material can be easily damaged by something as insignificant as a misplaced fingerprint.

Carbon fibre has appeared previously on other Rolls-Royce models, yet the addition of colour is a rare concept.

Bespoke 팀은 해당 컬렉션에 사용된 Technical Weave를 1mm마다 직접 검사했습니다. 여러 팀원이 동일한 직물을 검토하는 작업을 수행해 기하학적인 완벽성을 보장하고 미세한 결함도 놓치지 않기 위해 최선을 다했습니다. 그리고 이 단계를 수행하는 과정에서 실내에 들어오는 햇빛을 모방하여 직물의 결함을 보여주는 "산업용 조명 설비"를 사용했습니다.

 

소재에 결함이 없는 것으로 확인되는 경우에만 수작업으로 세심하고 섬세한 세척 과정을 진행했습니다. 소재의 불안정한 특성을 감안하여 자동화된 기계 세척은 고려조차 하지 않았습니다. 순면 직물에 손으로 아주 낮은 압력만 가해 최종 결과물의 완성도를 저하시킬 수 있는 느슨한 섬유를 모두 제거했습니다.

Next, a high-gloss layer that accentuates Technical Weave’s signature sparkle was applied. The lacquer was sanded and levelled using an electronic gauge, then buffed — all by hand. Machines were too abrasive for the task and at risk of penetrating the protective lacquer, which would destroy the delicate strands underneath. This time-intensive process was repeated twice before the desired, mirror-like shine was achieved.

After being fit into place across the Wraith’s fascia, Technical Weave was ready for its shimmering reveal.
