woven fabrics are stronger
Soft woven represents a group of light products made with woven fabrics such as tops, shirt, dresses, trousers.
In woven fabrics, threads or yarns are placed perpendicular to one another, then attached together through a pattern called “warp” and “weft”. This creates fabric.
From basket weaving to loom-weaving, the process of weaving was already known in the Paleolithic era, as early as 27,000 years ago.
Woven fabrics are produced on a loom. The loom joins two sets of yarns by weaving one set between the other. The two sets of yarns are perpendicular to each other. One set is called the warp and runs the length of the fabric.
Woven cloth is flexible but not overly stretchy, so it is able to retain its shape well. Also, woven fabrics are strong, making woven cloth well-suited to machine washing and durable use.
There are all kinds of different weave styles that give different types of fabrics as a result. Most of the clothing is made of three main types of weaves: twill, satin and plain weave. Each style has its own advantages and specific application.
