The Dedication Of The Artisans Is The Starting Point For An Exceptional Quality Net.

The production of nets in Pana is a meticulous and passionate process, involving various steps that result in exceptional quality pieces. Each stage of this process, from the fabric to the final finishes, is carried out with skill and care by a team of at least nine artisans.
The first step in producing a net is creating the body, made of cotton fabric. This fabric is carefully woven on an electric loom, ensuring a solid and sturdy base for the net. Each thread is precisely placed, resulting in a uniform and durable fabric.

Once the net body is completed, we move on to the second step: creating the varanda. The varanda is the ruffled edge that sways on the net, and it is hand-knotted, knot by knot. The artisans dedicate themselves to bringing each detail to life, carefully tying knots to create a varanda that is both beautiful and functional.

In the third step, we have the attention to detail in creating the "Carel". The Carel is an important element of the net, and it is also handmade. The artisans work meticulously, paying attention to every detail, to create a Carel that complements the design of the net and adds a special touch of beauty and elegance.

Finally, we reach the fourth step: the mamucaba. This is the finish of the net's handle and is exclusively done with the hands and feet of the artisans. The mamucaba adds extra strength to the net, ensuring it can withstand everyday use and provide comfort and safety to its users.

Each step of the production of nets in Pana requires skill, patience, and dedication. The artisans work together, sharing knowledge and techniques, to create nets that are true works of art. These nets are more than just functional items - they represent a legacy of tradition, culture, and love for craftsmanship.
