9 kinds of fabrics commonly used in fabric curtains

Although they are all called "fabric curtains", the fabric materials are different. Nine common fabrics are: polyester, blended, polyester-cotton, yarn, cotton, linen, rayon, flocking and satin. Different types of fabrics have different prices and effects. Let's talk about the characteristics of each fabric in detail.

Polyester, also known as "polyester fiber", has a very wide range of applications in clothing. In the field of fabric curtains, the vast majority are also polyester fiber products. Polyester can imitate the texture of other fabrics, such as linen, cotton, silk, etc. And the price is low, very suitable for home users. The disadvantage is that it is easy to generate static electricity and is not breathable. Especially on clothes that require frequent friction, it will be very obvious.
We mentioned earlier that polyester can imitate the texture of other fabrics, but it has defects such as static electricity and airtightness. Then add some real fabrics to polyester—for example, when using polyester to imitate cotton, add some real cotton threads to polyester—in this way, not only the texture is more realistic, but also the characteristics of the fabric are closer to being imitated fabric. This method of adding polyester to other natural fabrics is called "blending".
Jeans like polyester cotton material, breathable and wear-resistant
Polyester cotton is a kind of blended fabric, which is a combination of polyester and pure cotton. The reason why it is singled out in the fabric is mainly because the public loves cotton more than all other materials. The breathable effect and soft texture of cotton thread are the best among all fabrics. The disadvantage is that it is easy to wrinkle, especially when washing.
Few curtains are made of pure cotton, the most popular fabric in clothing, but almost everyone is screaming in the field of curtains. The main reason is that the drape of pure cotton fabrics is too poor. No one wants their curtains to always arch and never be flat. However, in some INS styles, there are often posed cotton curtains. But again: it might work, but it's really hard to use.
Polyester is a polyester fiber, which is a substance that is artificially synthesized. Man-made fibers are the larger definition, which includes both synthetic and recycled fibers. When you mention "man-made fiber" when shopping for fabric, it often means that the fabric is made from recycled fibers. What is recycled fiber? For example, plastic bags and beverage bottles can be reprocessed to make man-made fibers. The price of this fabric is very low, but the effect is indistinguishable from polyester. The only difference is probably that the recycled fiber has a little more static electricity.
Linen is a natural material, and the surface of the fabric produced has a relatively grainy feel. Our common "hemp curtains" are often imitated by polyester. Real linen curtains are very heavy, but not as blackout as polyester (which has finer fibers). In terms of texture, even if the polyester technology is superb, it is difficult to completely restore the rough beauty of linen.
Flocking fabric is a layer of velvet on the surface, which feels soft to the touch. Many bedrooms will like this feeling. But this layer of fleece is not inherent, but glued on: short fibers are vertically bonded to the base of the fabric, and the short fibers here are the layer of fleece. As for the base layer of the fabric, it is generally made of polyester or polyester cotton. The effect of flocking curtains has a lot to do with the base layer of the fabric. The thicker the base layer, the better the curtain will hang. The density of the base layer is high, and the shading performance of the curtain is good.
In the past few years, local tyrants would choose curtains made of silk and satin fabrics-this kind of curtains are composed of multiple layers of cloth, the surface layer is satin, and the inner interlayer is generally pure cotton and polyester. In recent years, polyester technology has become more and more advanced, and it can almost completely imitate the effect of satin. So the real silk curtains were gradually eliminated.
The gauze curtain should be taken out separately, although its essence still belongs to polyester. The fibers used in sheer curtains are longer and thicker than ordinary cloth curtains. During the weaving process, the density of the fabric is relatively small, so the gauze curtains we see are all translucent. The thickness of the gauze curtain fiber directly affects the effect of the gauze curtain. If you want a slightly higher shading rate, you can choose a finer fiber, which can be woven with a higher density. If you want not to affect the lighting, you can choose the traditional thick fiber sheer curtain, and the price is more suitable.
