mercancías de gran urdimbre
Explanation:
That is to say, high "KPSI" as measured by the number of knots per square inch (numero de nudos por pulgada cuadrada). A higher KPSI number means more and finer handwork involving higher prices.

Being "urdimbre" the "Conjunto de hilos que se colocan en el telar paralelamente unos a otros para formar una tela" (Diccionario de la Real Academia Española).

Cheers,

Val
