Natural Cellulose Fibres

fiber Cellulose is a fibrous material of plant origin and the basis of all natural and man-made cellulosic fibres. The natural cellulosic fibres include cotton, flax, hemp, jute, and ramie. Cellulose is a polymeric sugar polysaccharide) made up of repeating 1,4-8-an hydro glucose units connected to each other by 8-ether linkages. Strong intermolecular forces between chains, coupled with the high linearity of the cellulose molecule, account for the crystalline nature of cellulosic fibres.

Advances in Weaving Technologies

fabric weaving The emphasis on productivity and quality has developed the weaving technology very much and as a result the working hours required to weave fabric from loom have been reduced from about 20 to 0.25 during the last 125 years, and in the last 50 years there has been a reduction of 95% in operative hours per standard unit produced.

Knitted Fabrics for Elasticity, thickness and warmth

fabric knitting The elasticity of knitted fabrics gives them an excellent drape, but this is opposed somewhat by their generally greater thickness compared to wovens.

Broken Twills

fabric weaving A broken twill weave composed of vertical sections which are alternately right hand and left hand in direction. In Broken Twills, twills are constructed by breaking the continuity of any continuous twill weave. They are formed by reversing the pattern part way through the repeat. The Break can be achieved in different ways.

Projectile Weaving Machines

fabric weaving The projectile weaving machine made its appearance in the market at the beginning of the 50?s and is today still used in the whole world. In this weaving machine the weft insertion is carried out by small clamp projectiles, which number depends on the weaving width and which with their grippers take out the weft yarn from big cross-wound bobbins and insert it into the shed always in the same direction.

Manmade Cellulose Fibers

fiber Certain natural cellulose fibers are treated and re-produced for specific purposes. The famous fibers such as Viscose Rayon, Acetate etc. are produced by processing various natural polymers.

Fashion Dynamics and Principles
