Texland - 9 aspetos a ter em conta quando escolhe tecidos - Texland

Choosing a fabric for any project depends on a series of variables that dictate the requirements we make when choosing, because, obviously, the requirements for a Carnival costume are quite different from the requirements for a sofa.

In this way, we have created a list of 9 aspects that you should consider when choosing a fabric :

  1. Quality: Make sure the fabric you are choosing is of good quality and has good resistance. This will ensure your clothing or decor item lasts longer and maintains its appearance over time.

  2. Composition: Some fabrics are made from natural materials such as cotton or linen, while others are made from synthetic materials such as polyester or acrylic. Choose the composition that best suits your needs.

  3. Weight/grammage: This is an element that is often overlooked, however one should not forget that some fabrics are lighter than others, a fact that may be important for making certain pieces of clothing or decoration items. Choose a fabric that is the right weight for the project you have in mind.

  4. Texture: The texture of a fabric can affect both the look and feel of a garment or decor item. Choose a fabric with a texture you like and suitable for your project.

  5. Elasticity: There are different “levels” of elasticity that can be very important when choosing a fabric. For example, if you are going to try to make sportswear then you need a fabric with a high level of elasticity, on the other hand if you are going to cover a sofa you don't need a fabric with so much elasticity.

  6. Price: Choose a fabric that is affordable and fits your budget based on the type of project you are undertaking.

  7. Maintenance: Choose a fabric depending on the effort you are available to put into its maintenance, because the maintenance of a sequin fabric is quite different from a fabric like nappa, which is a resistant fabric, easy to clean and sanitize. In any case, it is always important to check the washing and care instructions for the fabric before buying it, as some fabrics are delicate and need special care.

  8. Sustainability: There are fabrics that are more sustainable than others. Here the values ​​and concerns of each person have a particular impact. Fabrics such as organic cotton or fabrics made from recycled materials have a lower environmental impact than synthetic nappa, however these may not be suitable for certain types of use.

  9. Use: This is undoubtedly one of the most important aspects. Make sure the fabric is suitable for the purpose of your project. For example, if you are making a curtain, choose a fabric that is resistant to sunlight. If you are looking for fabrics by purpose
