A quality choice of materials is important for a quality end product. All items in online store are made of cotton or at least a large proportion of it. Cotton is a fabric that has many positive properties in addition to its natural origin. In order to find out more about those, I have described the materials that are most often used in our lines of products.
Cotton is one of the most widely used materials and accounts for more than half of all fabric needs worldwide. Life without cotton is hard to imagine as we have it all around us. Historian sources claim that cotton is said to have conquered Europe in the 4th century BC, with Alexander the Great. The oldest archaeological find of cotton cloth was found among Indian ruins and is believed to be around 2500 years old. Cotton is not only pleasant to the touch and wear, but is also very absorbent, a good insulator, very airy and at the same time it is very easy to maintain and handle. Fabric resilience quality depends on the thickness of the thread, the process of weaving and processing. Its value also increases with the purity of fibers, which varies considerably, depending on the method of collection. It can be picked by hand or by machine. Organic cotton, which is hand picked, is currently the most sought and used. Today however, other fabrics are also mixed with cotton, especially polyester which adds some positive properties to clothing, such as elasticity and extended life.
For the outer parts of our products, we prefer to use decorative fabrics. They are more densely woven and therefore considered to be more durable and coarser materials. Deco fabric has always been very popular with designers, its most important feature is a long life span. It is a fabric that is not dyed but is in most cases printed with various repeating patterns. In some cases, it is coated with a plastic during treatment to make it water repellent. Deco fabric differs from each other in the way they are woven, the composition of the threads and the weight. Among the methods of weaving, we prefer to use canvas, twill, canvas, dolphin or satin.
The most commonly used fabrics in crafting our products are as I mentioned decorative materials made of cotton, but when choosing we use fabrics that at first glance impress us with their appearance and texture. You may also find some other fabrics among them as well, which I will describe in the following blogs. Above all, we love jeans and jacquard, which always inspire us with interesting patterns and textures.
