Specially engineered manufactured fibres, which are used as filler material in pillows, mattresses, mattress pads, sleeping bags, comforters, quilts, and outerwear. They are used for padding and insulation in garments and soft furnishings such as cushions and duvets.
By definition, Fil Coupe fabrics incorporate small jacquard (or woven-in) patterns on a light-weight fabric, usually silk. These threads are cut on the backside of the fabric to create a distinctive frayed look underneath. What’s particularly intriguing about this fabric is that this textural detailing is only apparent under the fabric.
A manufactured fibre of indefinite length (continuous), extruded from the spinneret during the fibre production process. All fibres that have a practically unlimited length are considered filaments.
In a piece of woven fabric, the yarns that run across the fabric from selvage to selvage, and which run perpendicular to the warp or lengthwise yarns. Also referred to as the weft or woof.
The term “findings” means any textile fibre product which is added to the consumer textile article for a functional purpose, differs in textile fibre content from the article to which it has been added and does not constitute a part of the outer surface of that article unless it is incorporated at or along an edge. They are any extra items attached to a garment during the manufacturing…
In textile manufacturing, finished fabric refers to the necessary finishing processes that convert the woven or knitted cloth into usable material and is ready to be used in the manufacturing of garments. More specifically, it is any process performed after dyeing the yarn or fabric to improve the look, performance, or “hand” (feel) of the finish textile or clothing. These processes include bleaching, dyeing, printing, heat setting, etc.
All processes through which a piece of fabric passes after manufacturing in preparation for the market. These include bleaching, dyeing, printing, heat setting, etc. It any process performed after dyeing the yarn or fabric to improve the look, performance, or “hand” (feel) of the finish textile or clothing.
Fabrics treated with special chemical agents or finishes to make them resistant to burning. Today many fabrics achieve this property by using fibres that have this property built directly into the polymer. A fabric is considered flame resistant if it passes federal specifications for specific end-uses.
Flame Retardant is a chemical which is applied onto a fabric or incorporated into the fiber at the time of production, in order to reduce significantly a fabric’s flammability. Involved principally for technical fabrics.
Flamme is a type of yarn dyed in skeins with different colors, which has short sections of increased diameter: it results in a fabric with shaded stripes in various colors. The term means flamed or blurred.
