What Are Woven Fabrics?

As the name suggests, woven fabrics are any textile that has been manufactured on a weaving loom. There are different types of fabric weaves such as drill or sateen, each lending unique properties relating to the strength and surface texture of the finished textile. Broadly speaking, woven fabrics are best suited to more tailored garment types as they have less inherent stretch than knitted apparel fabrics - just think of the difference between a fitted business shirt and a casual jersey T-shirt.

Woven Apparel Fabrics FAQs

How do I tell if a fabric is woven?

If you're unsure how your fabric has been constructed you can check by looking closely at the fabric's surface. Woven fabric will have a texture similar to a woven basket, with an alternating pattern of over and under yarns. On the other hand, knitted fabrics will have a series of tiny "v" shapes across the surface, and more inherent stretch than a woven fabric.

What is woven fabric made of?

Woven fabrics can be made from a variety of different fibre types, including polyester, cotton, linen, viscose, rayon and blends of two or more fibres. Consider the inherent properties of these fibres as well as the type of woven construction when choosing the best fabric for your project.

How do I choose the right woven apparel fabric for my project?

Start by thinking about what you're making, and the properties the fabric needs to have to make it work. For example, does it need to be strong and sturdy for a bag, or lightweight and floaty for a summer skirt?
