Kings and queens of the historic ages lived a life of royal splendor, wearing clothes made of gold and silver threads. Appealing metallic fabrics are into spotlight currently, at the high end of fashion due to its look and feel. This process in textile treatment gives a unique appearance to the fabric making it attractive.

Two methods are used in the manufacturing process of metallic fibres. One is the laminating process, where a layer of aluminum is sealed between two layers of polyester or acetate film. The metal is colored and sealed in a film, and later the film is colored before laminating.

The second way involves making the fiber through metalizing process, where the metal is heated until it turns into vapor. It is deposited into the polyester film at high pressure. The metallic fiber made in this way is thinner, more durable, and flexible then the prior one.

Metallic fabrics are mainly manufactured in Europe and by a handful of manufacturers in the US. This process adds value, and improves the functions of the fabric. Metallic clothing has a unique specialty, and brightness that creates lustrous images.
