Our standard fabric (single-ply 160S superfine polyester) comes in the widest choice of colours. The number refers to the thread count per square inch of fabric has a luxurious, soft touch and is easy to launder, iron and care for at home.
The added benefit of this high thread count, soft feel fabric is that it creates a garment that is smoother with a beautiful drape; yet it is woven to ensure durability and longevity.
We also offer a 2-ply polyester twill-weave fabric, which has a 140-thread count. This composite thread goes through a high-twist process, resulting in a uniform appearance. This easy-to-wear modern fabric gives a beautiful drape and looks wonderful on the wearer, while still being perfect for fuss-free home laundering and ironing.
With a higher thread count, our satin fabrics have a remarkable soft and luxourius sheen that is rare in manmade fabrics. As well as using satin for the lining of our academic hoods, satin is also used for sashes and stoles. Our academic gowns can also be seen in theatre and television productions.
