Fashion sets new applications for crushed fabrics

Nov '09
Various techniques are being applied to the fabrics to give unique and charming finishes. One such technique is the 'Crushed effect fabrics'. Fibers in the fabrics are selectively cut, and crushed by means of heating. The fabric is then softened to obtain a sculptured effect.

Methods such as trimming the fibers, using patterned rolls, treating with hot fluids, using heated drums etc, are followed to create designs or sculptured effects on the fabric. Fabrics are immersed in a liquid such as an aqueous dye solution, and are made wet.

They are then crumpled and squeezed into a ball like mass. The excess of water is removed, and the fabric is crushed randomly. The crushed fabric is then dried in a tumble dryer.
Crushed fabrics find creative applications in making fashion apparels, purses, handbags, footwear, home textiles and many more.
