We offer Cotton Twill Fabric that is easily identifiable by its distinctive diagonal lines known as wales. The interlaced manufacturing process results in a medium weight, extremely durable material that resists tearing and recovers from wrinkles much better than traditional plain weave fabrics. Unlike plain weave, a twill fabric has two sides, the front having the more pronounced wale and typically is the more attractive, outward facing side of a garment.
Cotton Twill Fabric is quite sturdy, drapes very well, and tailors easily. Twills are generally used for work clothes, coats, pants and durable upholstery, and the breathability of twill makes it suitable for attire for any season. The water and air-resistant nature of the material, coupled with the fact that it tends to hide soils and stains, makes twill ideal for outdoor garments and furniture.
Popular examples of twill weave fabrics are tweed, denim, chino and gabardine. All of these materials are lauded for their durability and ruggedness, both in appearance and functionality.
