organic cotton rib fabrics

RIB FABRICS - SOFT, BREATHABLE, STRETCHY AND VERSATILE

Organic cotton GOTS-certified from Ecological Textiles can be used for a range of applications, such as e.g. underwear, waistcoats and the edging of pullovers. Rib fabrics are made on two needle beds and are very extensible in the width. Both sides of the fabric look the same. We offer 1x1 and 2x2 rib fabrics. They both show a relief, but this is more distinct in the 2x2. We offer them with and without elastane.

Rib fabrics from Ecological Textiles


RIB FABRICS are the stretchiest types of knits. They are easy to distinguish from other jerseys because they show raised and sunken vertical stripes. It is this structure that makes rib fabrics more elastic and stretchy than e.g. single jerseys even when made from 100 percent cotton. When used in clothing, they tend to fit the body. Because the elasticity is mainly created by the structure, rib fabrics are durable and stay in shape fairly well.

Ribbed knits from organic cotton are soft, breathable, can be worn directly on the skin and feel comfortable. That’s why they are not only used for cuffs of sleeves and borders for garments (ribbing) but also for shirts, underwear, sweaters, cardigans etc. The ribbed structure gives the fabric some extra volume, RIB FABRICS feel a bit thicker. Nonetheless they are perfect for making summer clothing.

The fabric is reversable, both sides look the same. Ecological Textiles offers 1x1 and 2x2 fabrics. Both show the typical pattern of raised and sunken vertical stripes (wales) but these are more distinct in the 2x2. We offer both rib jerseys made from 100% organic cotton and ribs with some elastane. The elastane gives the fabrics some more weight and dimensional stability.

All organic cotton RIB FABRICS in the collection of ECOLOGICAL TEXTILES are GOTS certified. This certification is your best guarantee that the cotton was really grown organically, produced environmentally friendly and that care has been taken for good working conditions and social rights at the workplace.
The fabrics are produced from Turkish organic cotton grown in the Aegean districts (Aegean organic cotton). The processing (spinning, knitting, dyeing) takes place in GOTS-certified companies in the direct vicinity of the growing areas. Transport to our warehouse in the Netherlands takes place by truck. Cutting and packing is done in our own GOTS-certified company.
