organic cotton gabardine

TOUGH AND SOPHISTICATED GO TOGETHER... ORGANIC GABARDINES PROVE IT

Gabardine is a tightly woven fabric in a twill weave. The fabric has a sheen and feels soft due to its dense structure. This structure also makes the fabric somewhat water-repellent. A gabardine retains its shape well and does not wrinkle very much. Due to its character and weight (mid-weight) the gabardine is widely applicable in both women's and men's fashion, and can be worn all year round. It is widely used in jackets, skirts, overcoats, trousers, bags etc.

What is gabardine?

Gabardine is a sturdy and tightly woven fabric that can be used to make e.g. suits, jackets, skirts, trousers, uniforms. Characteristically, gabardines are woven in a twill weave with a clear diagonal line on the face side and a smooth back.

The fabric was developed in the 19th century and was initially made from wool. The gabardines from ECOLOGICAL TEXTILES are almost all made of organic cotton and GOTS-certified, but we also have gabardines from 100% wool and a blend from organic cotton with hemp.

Already in the 19th century the fabric was presented as breathable, fairly water-repellent and comfortable. Another characteristic of the gabardine is its softly shining appearance.

Most gabardines have an average weight, not very heavy and certainly not too light. This means that the clothing made from gabardines is usually suitable for wearing all year round.
