What Is A Fabric?
Fabrics are materials that are a result of knitting or weaving threads. At Ellora Creations PVT LTD, both woven and knitted fabrics are used to manufacture the garment.
Woven fabrics are textiles that are generally made on a loom (power and hand). They are formed by making two
sets of yarnthreads meet each other at right angles. These fabric types are considered to be more durable
and less stretchy. The fabric counts determine the durability and tightness of the same. The lesser the
fabric count the lower is the durability.
A few examples of woven fabrics are:
Knitted Fabrics Knitted fabrics are textiles that are made by a single set of yarn thread. They are formed by interloping and locking. These fabrics are stretchy and can also return to their original shape easily.
The fabric is mixed with various synthetic materials too. They are comfortable to wear but result in easy piling. The knitted fabrics can be flat knit, purl knit, or rib stitch knit. A few examples of knitted fabrics are:
- Jersey Material
- Viscose Knit Fabric
- Terry Cloth
