  • Plain weave-a weave where 1 yarn travels in the warp direction while another yarn is inserted in the fill direction (Click these links for some of our wholesale cotton fabric products => army ducks, sunforger canvas, numbered duck).

What are greige (gray, grey) goods?

This is not to be confused with color.  In the textile industry(the weaving part), this describes unfinished, loom-state woven or knitted goods.  Please call us to inquire about wholesale cotton fabric prices.

What are different types of finishes?

  • Water repellent- a treatment that enables the fabric to repel water, but does not make it completely water proof.
  • Water proof- will resist leakage and wetting even under a heavy shower.
  • Mold and Mildew- a finish to prevent the growth of mold or fungus on cellulosic and protein based textiles.  Mold and mildew is also known to damage synthetic fibers.
  • Flame-retardant finish- textiles can me made flame resistant by using inherently flame resistant fibers, by adding flame resistant chemicals to the spinning solution when the fiber is made, or by applying a chemical to the fabric.  Flame retardant fabrics should be durable(able to withstand up to 50 washes), non-toxic and non-carcinogenic.  In most case the hand and texture of the fabric remain the same.
