In this blog, we project light on the various fabrics available in the market, but without elaborate in detail. We briefly explain the types of fabrics in the garment industry. We observe a rapid evolution of the fabric sector, many synthetic and artificial fabrics replace the most famous natural fabrics such as cotton, wool, and linen, but to understand how important the choice of textile for your clothing must reflect on the most asked or relevant question: After food, clothing is the thing with which we come in closer contact during our lives.
This should make us think that how important it is to choose organically grown fabrics. After this brief introduction, we start this blog and divide the fabrics into 3 broad categories:
- Natural fabrics:
Natural fabrics are made up of plant fibers, animal fibers, or Made from plant fibers, animal fibers, or gain it from minerals. These extracted from plants or animals that are allowed to spin cotton, linen, silk, and wool.
Benefits of Natural Fabrics:
The fibers are very intertwined, yet extremely breathable and soft.
Usually extracted without the use of harmful vapors or chemical processes for the environment.
The clothing made up of Natural fabric is very light and soft, but at the same time provides warmth and protection to the body.
They are used for fashion low cost, but also for luxury products.
Disadvantages of Natural fabrics:
The Production cost of Natural fabrics is high especially compared to synthetic fabrics.
We can not improve it without adding chemical additives. It reduces waste, a property that makes it a renewable resource.
- Artificial fabrics:
When Natural raw materials are transformed into fibers through chemical processes then It is called Artificial Fabrics. They are extracted from natural raw material, as usually obtained cellulose wood pulp, animal or vegetable protein, which is subject to physical-chemical processes.
- Synthetic Fabrics:
Derived from synthetic materials and consist mainly of oil waste. Are obtained by synthesis of various petroleum products such as polyester, the nylon or spandex, ie fiber is entirely chemical, and thus the development of raw materials and the manufacture of the strands or threads, are man-made.
Therefore, these textiles are economical, versatile, durable, resistant and easy care, providing greater freedom when drawing.
You will not find a complete list of materials for which he should visit Wikipedia. We will talk mainly of ecological fabrics used in Sustainable Fashion. All tissues that have textile certifications, which attest to an environmentally friendly production.
Each fiber textile possesses qualities inherent in it, although they can not be seen with the naked eye and/or touch are essential for their performance; aspects length, absorption, color, resistance, UV protection, elasticity, and recovery, etc., are properties that are in each of the textiles.
Significantly, there are over 10 different technologies, each designed specifically for each weather condition, use or physical activity, this thinking of the needs that each environment requires.
