FABRICS

COTTON

Cotton is the oldest textile fiber, after flax and wool. The length of the fiber determines the quality, the longer the fiber the more lustrous, durable, valuable and fine the cotton. Cottons are classified according to the count (ratio of weight divided by length), the higher the count the finer and more valuable the fabric. “Double twisted” refers to a processing technique by which the two cotton threads are twisted together.

This operation makes the fabric stronger giving it a higher quality. The cotton fiber is not electrostatic, does not felt, has very high hygroscopicity leaving the skin breathable, not irritating it and without causing allergies.

cashmere

Fiber obtained from the wool of goats, native to northern India. They are raised in areas of Tibet, China and Mongolia.

Cashmere is soft, silky and velvety, giving a warm and soft feel.

lINEN

Fiber. Linen is a natural cellulosic fiber extracted from the stem of the plant of the same name, it feels very cool and comfortable on the skin, especially suitable for warm climates, has an excellent ability to absorb moisture and does not cause allergies.

WEAVES

POPlIN

The name of this fabric comes from papalina, referring to the papal city of avignon, where its manufacture originated. The number of weft threads is about half the number of warp threads. This peculiarity allows for stripes with sharp, defined colors, almost not at all soiled by the weft yarn.

TWILL

This is a levantine weave fabric, characterized by a barely perceptible diagonal weft or a more pronounced weft in which the diagonal emerges.
The fine diagonal ribs create pleasing highlights.

Twill pied de poul

French locution meaning “chicken’s foot.” Generally two-tone micro-design is made by alternating four light and four dark threads in the warp and weft.

OXFORD

A fabric characterized by a warp of finer yarn than the weft. An effect of micro white dots on the ground is achieved.

ROYAL OXFORD

The intersection of the white weft and the warp in another color forms a characteristic pattern of tiny squares. Royal oxford fabric originated in England at the end of the xixth century and is the ” royal ” version of classic oxford, i.e., a more shaved fabric than regular oxford that is distinguished by its particular softness and luster but above all by its exceptional texture.

Zephir

A type of fabric generally made of plain weave cotton that has the characteristic of having the same number of threads and wefts per centimeter.

 

This allows for balanced squares in which warp and weft have the same weight. The designation “zephir” should be given to a fabric as light and delicate as a puff; the name is derived from zephyr.

VOILE

These are fabrics that are light and soft because of their very dense weave.

Stretch

A stretch fabric made from a nylon-lycra yarn in the weft. It has the characteristic of being very stretchy and therefore very comfortable.

Cottons are classified according to the title (ratio of weight divided by length), the higher the count, the finer and more valuable the fabric. By “double twisted” we mean a manufacturing technique with which the cotton threads are twisted together in two. This operation makes the fabric more resistant giving it a higher quality. The cotton fiber is not electrostatic, does not felts, has very high hygroscopicity, allowing the skin to transpire, not irritating it and without causing allergies.
