The traditional lace meeting of Riba-roja took place June 21st. More than 400 lacers joined this year's lace meeting. The event was sponsored by the Regiduria de Cultura del Ilustrisimo Ayuntamiento de Riba-roja d’ebre.
Our company, Metalurgica Folch, has also sponsored this annual meeting, giving the lacers some special JABALI LACE PINS.
The lace school of lacers prepared a showroom with their projects that were admired by all the visitors and lacers. All the lacers received great gifts from the sponsor organizations.
For the twentieth time, Folch participated in the lace meeting in Lleida, Spain, organized by the Associació Catalana de Puntaires, (Catalan Lace Association); the lace meeting took place in the Camps Elisis area of the town on Sunday June 7th 2009.
Over 3,000 lacers joined the lace meeting and had the chance to enjoy some cultural events including the sardana dance and Gegants (giants) exhibition, the day was sunny and cool, and gave to the Lacers the best opportunity to show their beautiful works, a great day to chat with friends and enjoy their favourite hobby and find the best tools and publications for their special lace projects, and shopping for lacing goodies.
Folch introduced their new JABALI lace pins at the lace meeting, namely the stainless steel pin 38 mm x 0.40 mm the Color Dome 32 mm x 0.60 mm the small brass pin 10 mm x 0. 55 mm and hard steel 43 mm x 0.60 mm, the four pins were a great success with the lacers.
Folch also introduced our new octogonal box for 100 g with hanger.
Our company is always trying to produce the best pin for each lacing technique and we listen to the lacers about their pin requirements. Our primary goal is to satisfy all the lacers that visit us year after year.
Every year our Company Folch has an hourly lucky draw with the lacers for a basket with Jabali products, this year we had the youngest ever winner of our Jabali basket, see picture attached.
Have you ever wondered what type or size of pin you were using? Now you can quickly refer to the label on the bottom of each box for easy pin identification.
We have added the article description, in twelve languages, six languages for each label side: Spanish, English, French, Italian, German, and Portuguese, Norwegian, Swedish, Czech, Greek, Polish, and Catalan.
Our pins are made in Spain and are sold in the most of the european countries since 1924.
We have added a drawing on scale with mm, with the diameter and lenght dimensions and also our code system informs you about the lenght and diameter of each pin.
AAN 34 LENGHT 60 DIAMETER 08 50 G PACK
You can see the article code for both sides of the box.
Including the bar code to handle the retail identification, we are going to use the 12 language label with our hangshell octagonal box, and the traditional octagonal box.
The label will always remain inside the box, and the customer will keep it as a reminder for future purchases.
