"Manufacturing cost remains same. It's the fabric which makes your garment expensive!"
It is almost impossible to make any directory of all the fabric available in this world. But we have taken an attempt to simplify your fabric search or at least give an idea about the most commonly used fabric. Our team work hard to ensure you find it easy and convenient. We're not a fabric seller or we do not represent the mill. But we work closely with fabric suppliers and the kind of fabric we have mentioned here is not the end of our scope of fabric sourcing acumen. Please take this just as a tip of iceberg.
Natural fibres divide into animal and plant fibres. Animal fibres are those that are composed of amino acids called proteins, plant fibres are those made mainly of cellulose. Examples of animal fibres are alpaca, angora, cashmere, mohair, silk, and wool. Plant fibres can be things like in abaca, cotton, flax, hemp, jute. Natural fibres themselves also differ from man-made artificial and synthetic fibres. These fibres consist of rayon, nylon, acrylic, and polyester. Each of these are unable to decompose.
Cotton Poplin Fabric
Cotton Linen Fabric
Linen fabric feels cool to touch, a phenomenon which indicates its higher conductivity (the same principle that makes metals feel "cold"). It is smooth, making the finished fabric lint-free, and gets softer the more it is washed. However, constant creasing in the same place in sharp folds will tend to break the linen threads. This wear can show up in collars, hems, and any area that is iron creased during laundering. Linen has poor elasticity and does not spring back readily, explaining why it wrinkles so easily.
Cotton Voile Fabric
Light penetrable sheer fabrics include voile, muslin, and lace. These can be broadly divided into two groups based on method of production. The first are the natural fibers such as cotton and silk. The second group is prepared from a man-made fiber. This kind of synthetic sheer is extracted from raw material such as wood pulp or petroleum. They are robust and sturdy yet still delicate looking and tend to take dye well. They are often used as window dressing as they fall into soft folds that are appropriate for scarf or lining of a dress
This fabric is mostly used for making of premium quality of mens shirts.
Seersucker is a thin, puckered, all-cotton fabric, commonly striped or chequered, used to make clothing for spring and summer wear. The word came into English from Persian, and originates from the words sheer and shakar, literally meaning "milk and sugar", probably from the resemblance of its smooth and rough stripes.
It is woven in such a way that bunched threads cause the fabric to rise off of the skin. This ‘wrinkled’ look actually promotes breathability and it requires no special ironing making it a casual wear.
Gauze Cotton Fabric
Velvet is a type of woven tufted fabric in which the cut threads are evenly distributed, with a short dense pile, giving it a distinctive soft feel. By extension, the word velvety means "smooth like velvet."Velvet can be made from either synthetic or natural fibers.
Velvet used to be considered a special-occasion fabric, but it can work equally well as a luxe option for daytime wear.
