Fabrics FAQ

The key to finding the best fabric for the job is considering the item's purpose. This will enable you to understand the characteristics you need from your fabric. Commonly required fabric characteristics include comfort, texture, warmth, durability, flexibility, weather protection and fire resistance.

Determining the type of clothing you are making will help you understand what fabric you need. For instance, a summer dress requires a softer, lighter material like cotton or polyester, raincoats require waterproof fabrics like nylon or polyester, and jeans are likely to need something heavier and more durable like denim or linen.

Gentle washing, avoiding high temperatures, and mild detergents help maintain fabric beauty and longevity. For fabric-specific care tips, check the product page's washing and general care advice.

Yes, we offer fabric samples for all our fabrics, allowing you to get a better feel for the texture, colour and performance before purchasing.

When selecting a fabric for outdoor use, consider its durability, resistance to weather, including water and UV rays, and ease of cleaning. Fabrics like PVC are known for their resistance to water and fading, polyester and nylon for their lightweight and quick-drying properties, and canvas fabrics for their strength and longevity. The best fabric for your needs will depend on the specific outdoor conditions it will face and its intended use.
