What are the types of jeans fabrics?
Real jeans are made of 100% cotton, and even the stitches are cotton; you can also use polyester blended fabric instead of cotton, but it’s not very popular. The most commonly used dye is synthetic indigo. Traditional rivets are made of copper, but zippers and buttons are made of iron. Designer signs are made of fabric, leather or plastic, and some are embroidered on jeans with cotton thread.
In terms of denim fabric types, it can be divided into plain weave, twill weave, herringbone, interweave, slub, dark, and flocked denim.
In terms of composition, denim is divided into combed and carded. There are 100% cotton, elastic (lycra), cotton and linen blended, and Tencel.
In addition to the above-mentioned traditional products, there are also colorful denim:
Colored denim fabrics with different raw material structures;
1. Use a small proportion of spandex yarn (about 3-4% of the yarn weight) as the core-spun elastic warp or weft of the warp, woven into elastic denim;
2. Use low-ratio polyester and cotton blends as warp yarns to produce snowflake denim with a whitening effect after dyeing;
3. High-grade denim fabric woven with cotton, linen, cotton and wool blended yarn;
4. Denim fabric woven with medium and long fibers (T/R).
