This article will shed light on the various fabrics available on the market, but without going into detail. A brief of fabric families on the various tissues used in the garment industry. We are seeing a rapid evolution of the textile sector, many synthetic and artificial fabrics replace the most famous natural fabrics such as cotton, wool, linen, and hemp, but to understand how important the choice of fabric for your clothing must reflect on the most relevant question: After food clothing is the thing with which we come in closer contact during the span of our lives!

This should make us reflect on how important it is to choose organically grown fabrics, but if that's not enough we can add that our skin tends to absorb much of the chemicals used to produce clothing. After this brief introduction, we enter the heart of Article starting to divide the tissue into 3 broad categories:

Natural fabrics
Made from plant fibers, animal fibers, or extracted from a mineral. These come from plants or animals that are allowed to spin, such as cotton, linen, silk, wool. Unlike other fibers, the fibers being natural state require a slight adaptation (purification or cleansing of the fiber), to be implemented as woven and textile.

Check out the detailed article from smoothwares on natural fabric clothing.

Benefits Natural Fabrics

The fibers are very intertwined, yet extremely breathable and soft.
Usually extracted without the use of harmful toxins or chemical processes for the environment.
The clothing is very light, but at the same time provides warmth and protection to the body.
They are used for fashion low cost, but also for luxury products.
All natural fibers are biodegradable.

Natural fabrics Disadvantages

higher production costs, especially compared to synthetic fabrics.
The features are static, that is, we can not improve without adding chemical additives.

However, it is a sustainable option because it reduces waste, a property that makes it a renewable resource.

Artificial fabrics
Natural raw materials are transformed into fibers through chemical processes. They are manufactured from natural raw material, as usually obtained cellulose wood pulp, animal or vegetable protein, which is subject to physical-chemical processes, some known artificial fibers are rayon, viscose, and acetate.

Such fibers are in response to the need for long and strength filaments for weaving fabrics quality.

Synthetic Fabrics
Derived from synthetic materials and consist mainly of oil waste. Are obtained by synthesis of various petroleum products such as polyester, the nylon or spandex, ie fiber is entirely chemical, and thus the development of raw materials and the manufacture of the strands or threads, are man-made.

Therefore, these textiles are economical, versatile, durable, resistant and easy care, providing greater freedom when drawing.

You will not find a complete list of materials for which he should visit Wikipedia. We will talk mainly of ecological fabrics used in Sustainable Fashion. All tissues that have textile certifications, which attest to an environmentally friendly production.

Each fiber textile possesses qualities inherent in it, although they can not be seen with the naked eye and/or touch are essential for their performance; aspects length, absorption, color, resistance, UV protection, elasticity, and recovery, etc., are properties that are in each of the textiles.

Significantly, there are over 10 different technologies, each designed specifically for each weather condition, use or physical activity, this thinking of the needs that each environment requires.
