FABRIC,  is freedom of possibilities. Each yarn has it’s specificity and separate role to play. As people
are to weaving of a society, threads are to cloth. Fabric weaves are as distinctive as culture, with a certain past, present and future.

Here’s introducing the pioneers:

POPLIN, or Broadcloth, with its tightly knit, over- under weave, is smooth, light weight, soft to touch and breathable. A perfect pick for the summer months. The luxury quotient is directly proportional to its thread count.

SATIN, screams luxury. With its lustrous weave, especially those using silk, look inexpensive in itself! Garments made out of this weave are usually statement pieces. Summer party ready instantly !

DOBBY, revisit the late 1960’s, when this particular weave sprang to prominence. Durable, slightly textured and heavy, garments stitched out of this weave can bear it all!

DENIM, was in vogue, interestingly enough, following the massive First World War. The weave, a TWILL Construction is tough, coarse and sturdy, initially utilized for army uniforms were readily domesticated into the universal jeans and later variants.

LINEN, this weave is smooth, light and hence, the perfect pick for summers! The fabric is breathable lint free and gets softer with each wash.

TWILL, as distinctive as its diagonal ribbed weave, fabrics made out of this are durable, slightly heavy yet immensely comfortable. Wrinkle resistant and sturdy, they turn the perfect everyday companions!

LYCRA, or Spandex or Elastane, is a synthetic fiber known for its exceptional elasticity. It is stronger and more durable than natural rubber, and is often used in mixed fabric combinations. Lycra adds to a better fit and flexibility.

CHAMBRAY, often found identical to DENIM, is a completely separate weave altogether. Typically a lighter color appears beneath a DENIM fabric, while the underside of a CHAMBRAY fabric is almost similar to its face-side.
