Stretchy natural rib 2x2 from organic cotton

A lovely soft and structured 2 x 2 medium weight rib in a natural colour.
This fabric is perfect for edging the hems of your garment and also suitable to use as the base material for slim fitted shirts or underwear. Take in account its width of 100 cm. The elasticity and form retaining capacity of this rib fabric is further enhanced by the added four percent of elastane.

It matches perfectly with our unbrushed organic cotton sweat fabric and a range of other organic cotton materials in a black tone. This fabric can also work well as the base fabric for slim fitted tops and dresses giving your creation a distinguished look.

This fabric (360 gr/m2) is heavier than our 2x2 rib with the article number ET_TKS008-8 (230 gr/m2). The natural colour means that the fabric was not bleached or dyed and was left in the original shade. Also available in black and navy.

  • form retaining
  • soft on the skin
  • more pronounced rib

Clothing comfort

Cotton is relatively flexible, it is very comfortable, feels soft on the skin and can absorb up to 20% of water without feeling wet. Organic cotton fabrics are produced eco-friendly and are also skin-friendly.

Origin of the material

The organic cotton was grown in the Turkish districts near the Aegean Sea (so called Aegean cotton). Turkey has a large cotton industry and the cotton was spun and knitted there in GOTS-certified factories, thus limiting the carbon footprint.
