While choosing a fabric for tailoring, everyone wants the final product to look aesthetically pleasing, high-quality and unique. It is easy to combine all these qualities in one outfit with the help of textured fabrics.

These fabrics are:
  • Mikado
  • Twill

Let’s consider the features of each material separately.

Textured Fabrics. Mikado

This is probably the most classic “wedding” fabric. Doubtless, the material is intended for truly royal dresses. The cloth is a little bit similar to satin, however, its hallmark is its unique relief structure.

The fabric itself is dense, but then it is light, has an exceptional sheen that does not fade over the years. Owing to this, the product holds its shape well and practically does not crease.

With its help, one can make stunning corsets and wide belts that emphasize all most attractive curves simultaneously correcting tiny flaws, thus making the owner of the outfit look even more exquisite.

In the world of wedding fashion, Spanish brands such as Pronovias, St. Patrick and Rosa Clará can be named among the main adherents of this fabric. They often resort to Mikado to reflect a unique trademark style in their collections.

And it is not at all surprising, as Mikado fabric creates a sublime and distinct silhouette of a wedding dress with charming contours and subtle details.

Twill – particular fabrics

Twill is yet another fabric with an interesting relief.

According to its properties this material is durable and dense. The fabric is created by plain weaving. The weaving is characterized by its diagonal lines, which are created by their displacement in the warp threads.

The material has several advantages and its composition can be varied. It can be obtained from natural fibers (cotton, silk), as well as in combination with synthetic ones (polyester, elastane).

Twill is appreciated for a number of benefits, including:
  • high density;
  • fastness to rubbing;
  • aesthetic appearance;
  • does not deform. The fabric does not form creases, does not wrinkle and does not stretch;
  • low level of shrinkage;
  • compliance in drapery (with its help it will be possible to manufacture complex models of clothing);
  • does not permit dust and dirt through, trapping them from the outside of the fabric, however it is breathable.

Luxurious jacquard

Jacquard also belongs with the textured fabrics. This fabric features a large raised repeated pattern that is woven into the cloth rather than being printed on its surface. As a rule, the pattern is woven into the base of the cloth on a special mechanical loom.

This technology was invented by French weaver Joseph-Marie Jacquard in 1804, the fabric having been named after him.

Such materials as polyester, silk, cotton and acrylic are used for jacquard fabric production.

Depending on its density and weight of the fabric, jacquard serves for the various purposes. Light jacquard fabrics are often chosen for spring and summer wedding dresses, whereas heavy fabrics come in useful during the cold season.

The weight and strength of the finished jacquard fabric ultimately depends on the type of fibers used in weaving.

Jacquard is tough, durable, and also tear-proof.

The above-mentioned characteristics are perfectly complemented by the aesthetic component. Indeed, the wedding dresses made of such fabric appear to be the embodiment of elegance and magnetic charm.
