What kinds of Fibers do we use?

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry.

Tru-Pima Cotton

Tru-Pima is a very fine quality of Cotton which is characterized by fiber 2-3cm longer, on average, than to normal Cotton. The longer fibers, when twisted together into a thread, tend to pill less and provide a softer and smoother touch to the final yarn, and subsequently to the woven/knitted fabric.

The Pima Cotton is originally from Peru and is mainly grown in the USA and in Peru.

Cotton is the most popular and used natural fiber in the garment and home furnishing industry (56% for all fiber).

Cotton is natural staple fibers, characterized by breathability, softness and coolness.

Its fibers have a high breaking strength and abrasion resistant and dye adsorbent.

Cotton fabric, precisely because of the fiber absorption capacity, is common to wrinkle. For this reason, blending it with polyester or with other fibers like lycra, nylon, linen, help to achieve better performances and stabilize the fabric.

To achieve the same performance, by keeping the 100% Cotton composition intact, some chemical finishing can be applied to the fabric.

Lyocell or Tencel

Heads Up: Tencel is actually a brand name for a type of Lyocell. produced by Lenzing AG. This company also invented the Modal fiber. – for more info on Modal click here

Lyocell, exactly like Modal, is a type of Rayon and therefore a cellulose fiber. It is characterized by high absorption properties: it is 50% more absorbent than Cotton.

Lyocell can be knitted/woven alone or be blended with different fibers such as cotton, polyester, silk, rayon, linen, wool, and nylon.

Thanks to its breathability and thermal regulation, Lyocell fabrics are mostly used in the Active and Sportswear.

Lyocell fabrics are soft, smooth and shiny.

Rayon or Viscose

In order to solve any doubt: Rayon is the how Viscose is called in the USA.

Rayon is the result of a regenerated manufactured fiber from natural cellulose.

Rayon is not considered either a natural fabric since it requires a fairly long process to reach the finished fiber nor a synthetic one, like polyester, since the starting raw material is actually present in nature (cellulose)

Rayon fiber have a similar texture of natural fibers. Viscose can be knitted/woven alone or blended with various other fibers (cotton, spandex, polyester, linen, etc)

The fabrics made from Rayon are soft, drapey, breathable, and durable.

Rayon fiber is commonly used in a very large range of garments (dresses, linings, shirts, shorts, coats, jackets, etc).

Polyester and Recycled Polyester

Polyester is the most popular synthetic fiber (man-made polymer, PET) used in garment manufacturing.

Polyester can be recycled (RPET), by transforming PET and old and or unused polyester fabrics. After the recycling process, the RPET presents the same exact properties of Virgin Polyester. Also, the recycling process is less energy-consuming than the process to create virgin Polyester.

Polyester can be knitted/woven alone or blended with other fibers. For instance, the PolyCotton combo works very well because it comprehends the best properties of both fibers: this fabric is durable yet lightweight, wrinkle-resistant and far more breathable than 100% Polyester.

Polyester is very durable and resistant to shrinking and abrasions. For this reason such fabrics can be easily washed and dried at home.

100% Polyester fabrics can be laser-cut, sublimated, permanently heat-decorated thanks to its thermoplastic properties, easily heat sealed, etc.
