Which fabric to use to make trousers?
If you are looking for fabrics for your next trouser collection, here is a selection of fabrics that add sustainability value by contributing to textile circularity.
Cotton, perfect for making trousers
Cotton fabrics are among the most widely used fabrics in the world because they are easy to manufacture. Cotton fabric has good elasticity, softness, breathability and durability, the preferred characteristics when making garments. Cotton is also lightweight and easy to care for, is comfortable and retains color and texture despite weather and sun contact. They also help to better protect the skin from chemical irritants and provide good filtration of microorganisms such as viruses and bacteria, making them suitable for sensitive skin. In addition, cotton is a very flexible and stretchy fabric that promotes breathability and helps regulate body temperature.
Cotton twill refers to a cotton fabric made from a pattern of diagonal lines on the face of the fabric. This weaving technique especially brings out the colors.
Denim, the quintessential trouser fabric
Denim is a fabric made primarily from cotton, although it is also made from linen and hemp. Its use dates back to the early 19th century, when the original fabric, made from linen, was manufactured in France. Soon, the first denim designs appeared in San Francisco after the gold rush and quickly became a popular choice among farmers looking for tough, durable clothing. Today, denim fabric(also known as denim) is most famous for its use in the production of denim jeans.
Polyester is the most widely produced and used synthetic fiber in the world due to its strong and resilient properties, and is produced from petroleum or natural gas derivatives. Continuing developments in the industry have contributed to the creation of polyester fabrics that can mimic the texture and feel of natural fibers. It is an inexpensive but high quality material that will not warp, stretch or shrink. Easy to wash and dry quickly, it is lightweight and easy to use, resistant to moisture, UV rays, chemicals, abrasion and high temperatures.
It consists of a polymer with “amide” type bonds, which is a type of organic compound. Polyamide is found in nature, such as wool or silk, and can also be synthetic, such as nylon. Polyamide fibers are strong, lightweight, absorbent and water repellent. They have a soft texture and are hypoallergenic. In addition, they can be easily recycled; in our catalog you can find a wide variety of recycled polyamide.
