Weaving is a method of textile production in which two distinct sets of yarns or threads are interlaced at right angles to form a fabric or cloth.
We offer a diverse range of weaves that can be used to make garments to suit different occasions.
Distinguished by its small geometric patterns using two or more colours, the dobby weave is created using a special loom attachment and usually has a slightly raised weave texture, making it less susceptible to wrinkles and more durable.
Herringbone fabric is mirrored when woven to create its distinct V-shaped, chevron weave. Named after its resemblance to the bones of a herring fish, this fabric has a luxurious and smooth feel, a textured warmth and a slight sheen.
The houndstooth pattern is made from weaving two threads over and two threads under the warp, creating the signature broken checks or abstract four-pointed shapes that resemble a hound’s tooth. It feels smooth and has a rich appearance.
Even though the basket weave of the Oxford gives the fabric a slightly heavy texture, it still remains soft, breathable and durable. Often, one colour of weft is crossed with a white warp thread to give the oxford its signature checkerboard appearance.
Soft, supple and airy, twill fabric weaves twin horizontal threads under and over vertical threads to create its easily distinguishable diagonal weave or texture. Twill fabrics almost always have a slight shine and luxurious feel.
Corduroy’s bold visual character is achieved through the vertical cords or ridges or wales. It is woven with a plain base or twill weave and a floating yarn that is cut to raise the fibers giving it a velvety texture. Highly durable, it has a smooth feel.
In this complex weave, the arrangement of warp and weft threads are staggered and have fewer interlaces, creating a silky, lustrous surface and a fabric that drapes beautifully, making satin shinier than the average poplin weave. It has a very soft and smooth feel.
Lightweight and breathable, poplin is characterised by its tightly woven over-under weave pattern. This soft, lustrous and durable fabric has a classic, crisp appearance. It feels textureless, silky and soft to touch.
Although there is a basic structure similarity between the Oxford and Royal Oxford weaves, Royal Oxford is constructed by a two-three-two structure. This elaborate weave, using multi-coloured yarn, creates a dressy fabric with a distinctive luster and texture. It feels really soft and looks luxurious.
Woven with a fine count using a unique brushed technique, flannel is characterised by its soft texture and strong and sturdy feel. Cozy and warm, flannel garments are usually worn in cooler climes. They feel soft as butter and have a fuzzy texture.
Strong and lightweight, linen is made from the fibers of the flax plant and is more loosely woven and sheer than most cotton shirts. The fabric is durable and airy with a slubby texture, soft feel and natural water-wicking qualities. It feels really soft and breezy on the skin.
Woven on a special loom with a blend of cotton and lycra to give it its stretch, this fabric has a unique geometric pattern that looks and feels raised. Additionally, not all dobby fabrics look the same and come in a variety of patterns, colours and weights. They have a slight texture but feel soft on the skin.
Denim is a strong, durable fabric constructed in a twill weave. To create the two-tone look of denim, white weft threads are passed under two or more coloured warp threads (often created using indigo dye). The resulting fabric has the familiar diagonal ribbing and is soft, has a subtle sheen and drapes well. It feels soft, sturdy and durable.
Made using a blend of materials, four or more warp threads pass over a weft thread or vice versa, to create the fabric. It results in a material that's soft to touch, lustrous and drapes well with just enough stretch to provide comfort.
Denim fabric made using a blend of 98% cotton and 2% Spandex, retains the same look but has a more stretchy feel for added comfort and flexibility. This Stretch Denim fabric is strong, durable and works well for more form-fitting garments. It feels soft, strong and sturdy.
Woven in a high thread count with twin horizontal threads under and over vertical threads, stretch twill weaves have a distinct diagonal rib pattern. Durable and soft, the added stretch in the material makes wearing fitted clothing far more comfortable. They have a subtle texture but feel soft on the skin.
Tightly woven with a blend of cotton and lycra in an over-under weave pattern, this poplin fabric is characterized by a slight stretch. It has a beautiful sheen and classic ‘crisp’ characteristic. It has an almost textureless, silky feel.
Single jersey is a flexible, stretchy cotton fabric with the soft, lightweight feel of a comfy t-shirt. In single jersey fabric, the face side and back side appearance is different. The fabric feels extremely soft and smooth on the skin.
