Linings help you taking off and putting on clothes more easily because of their slippery surface, and they also protect shell fabrics. You can select linings depending on functions you’d like and garment designs: cupro, good moisture absorption and less static electricity and polyester, strong and good thermal plasticity, are common choices.
Woven LiningsTaffeta, High Density Taffeta
Plain weave taffeta is the most common material and used for linings of a wide variety of clothing. Its biggest feature is its softness and modest shine. High density taffeta with higher yarn density is a popular product.
Compared to taffeta, twill linings are thicker and look more luxurious.
They are often used for linings of suits and jackets.
Satin linings are very shiny, smooth and thick.
They are mostly used for winter suits and coats.
Woven LiningsPatterned linings
Carefully designed linings with patterns such as check and stripes.
Simple designs that can be used for a long time are popular.
They are made by yarn dyeing, heat transferring, or ink jet printing.
Patterns are expressed by weaving using dobby weaving machines.
Expressive uneven surface is attainable by these machines.
Woven LiningsDown Pack
Down packs are used for down jackets to prevent feathers from falling out of shell fabrics. By adding heat and pressure on the fabrics and filling gaps, the packs become securely sealed.
Bemberg uses regenerated cellulose fiber cupro made from cotton. Its surface is smooth and doesn’t cause friction easily. Beautiful colors, shine, and high functions are its features.
Also known as pocketing. Used for pockets of pants and jackets and arm holes.
Pockets made from shell fabrics tend to be too weak for the purpose, and they are too thick and affect shape of the garment. Their smoothness helps improve comfort, and they also protect shell fabrics.
Cotton, combination of of cotton and polyester, and polyester are common materials.
Simple and versatile products.
Patterns or designs are expressed by using dyed yarns (such as polyester).
Some products have sweat absorption function or are treated to weight reducing processing to make up for shortcomings of regular polyester.
Warp-knit fabrics are used for tricot. Compared to woven products, tricot stretches more and has softer hand feeling. They are soft for skin and offer great feeling of fitting, so they are suitable for linings.
Ideal for sportswear because of their good breathability.
They are also good at absorbing water and drying quickly.
Raised tricot fabrics are soft to touch, made by raising fibers.
They are often used for back cloth of winter clothes that require cold protection.
