Cotton is a soft staple fibre that grows in a protective case or a boll around the seeds of the cotton plants. Under natural conditions, cotton bolls increase the dispersal of the seeds. It is a versatile and most famous type of fabrics, and with this, it is comfortable to wear, affordable in price, light in weight and one of the best wears in all climate.
It has been utilised since ancient times, and the same traces found during the Indus valley civilisation. This fabric is woven by China, India and the USA. The knitted and woven fabrics are manufactured with cotton.
Silk fabric is also known as “Pattu” in South India, Resham in North India and “Paat” in East India, a natural fibre produced from the mulberry silkworm’s cocoons via a procedure called Sericulture. This fabric has a radiant appearance, though it has intricate weave patterns due to its natural fibre.
The prime reason for its shining appearance is that it has a triangular prism-like structure which allows silk cloth to reflect incoming light at many angles. That’s why it produces many colours.
Linen fabric made from the fibres of the Flax plants. It isn’t easy to make compared to cotton, but it is absorbent and more robust and dries faster than cotton fabric. The Linen fabric is highly heat-conductive. That’s why when we touch it, we feel it cold.
The Wool fabric is made from the animals’ fur, such as sheep and others. Australia is the leading company for producing Wool fabric, followed by China and New Zealand.
The Wool fabric impedes heat transfer. That’s why people use it for insulation in the cold climate. It can absorb water and sound, typically absorbing 1/3rd of its weight. Apart from this, some people can not use Wool fabric because of allergy to it.
Jute fabric made from the Jute plant, so it called vegetable fabric. Jute fibre is easy to produce, and India is the leading manufacturer of Jute fabric, followed by Bangladesh. Usually, Jute is used to make ropes, bags and sacks.
Chiffon fabric is transparent and light-weighted, originated in France. In French, the word ‘Chiffon’ meant cloth. The reason behind its transparency that it is inherently a fine mesh. It made from yarns’ variety like silk, nylon, and cotton—the most popular sarees made with this fabric.
Nylon is a synthetic fibre that is similar to plastic and used for manufacturing stockings and Umbrellas. An American company (DuPont) developed this fabric. It is a robust, water-proof and lightweight fabric that only melts under fire.
Velvet fabric is a soft texture fabric and well known for its Royalty and accepted by Royal families. It manufactured with Velvet silk which is a mixture of Silk and Rayon. Some costly Velvet fabric made from only silk.
Polyester fabric made from yarns of synthetic polyester and similar to plastic. This fabric is very resistant to shrinking and stretching and also is very durable, strong. This lightweight fabric does not need ironing and needs low maintenance. Polyester is a mixture of cotton and this blended fabric.
Italy and France are the producers of this fabric, but now it is mostly available in India and Pakistan.
A cotton warp-faced fabric under two or more warp threads known as the Horizontal line is called Denim fabric. Dungaree is similar to denim, manufactured in India for a long past though the denim fabric as it is today was manufactured by a French.
Rayon is made from natural fibers, and hence it is made by humans and not classified as synthetic fiber. Many types of Rayon are available, and they differ based on how they are made. Artificial silk is the form of Rayon.
Georgette is made with highly twisted yarns. It is more opaque than Chiffon and has dull-looking characteristics. Georgette has a grainy feel with lightweight. There are two types of Georgette, which are:
- Pure Georgette – woven with Silk yarns
- Faux Georgette – woven from Polyester and Rayon and is also named artificial Georgette.
Satin is glossy at the top and dulls at the back. The only way to differentiate between satin and silk is how the back of the fabric feels because both are shiny on the top. It can be made with silk yarns, cotton yarns, polyester etc.
