We are offering a qualitative range of Shirting Fabric.
Here we explain a few of the fabrics we weave:
Plain Weave: This is the simplest weave requiring a 2 harness loom, formed by yarns at right angles whereby each warp yarn interlaces with each weft yarn. Filling yarns pass over and under alternate warp yarns. It is reversible, firm wears well, less absorbent, used as background for printing/embroidery. Some of the plain weaves are broadcloth, muslin, batiste, percale, seersucker, organdy, voile, and tweed.
Twills: Twill weave is characterized by the effect of parallel diagonal ribs formed left-to-right or right-to-left. The resulting fabric is more pliable and drape-able than the plain or basket weave. Twill weave which has more warps than the wefts floating on the face of the fabric is called and those with wefts predominating is known as weft-faced.
Pique: Lightweight to heavyweight cotton fabric with a raised woven design. Lengthwise wales or cords on the face of fabric (formed by extra warp yarns) that are held in place by crosswise weft floats on the back of the fabric. Extra warp yarns do not show on the face of the fabric. They are not interwoven but laid under the cords to emphasize the quilted effect. It is mainly made on dobby or jacquard loom.
