What is Chino Fabric? 

  • Chino fabric is characterized by its durable twill weave construction. 
  • It is typically made of 100% cotton and is colored khaki or tan the majority of the time. But it's also possible to accomplish it in a variety of different tints of hue. 
  • The fabric receives a subtle gloss as a result of the mercerization process. 
  • The word "chinos" can also be used to refer to a pair of pants that are constructed from chino fabric. These pants, which have recently seen a surge in demand in the world of casual fashion, are known as "chinos."

  • As the fabric was first manufactured in China, the pants were initially referred to in Spanish as Pantalones chinos, which translates to "Chinese pants." This name was then abbreviated to just "chinos" in English. 
  • Chino fabric was first made for the military. It was meant to be easy to use, last a long time, and be comfortable for soldiers to wear. Also, the use of natural earth tones was the first step toward camouflage, which eventually took the place of the brightly colored tunics that were worn before. 
  • In the second half of the 1800s, the military of both the United Kingdom and the United States began using it as their regular uniform.

Applications & Usage

Care Instructions 

  • Use Stain Solution or the Wash & Stain Bar to treat any stains you may have. 
  • Turning the garment inside out in preparation for washing is the first step. 
  • Only wash with colors and materials of the same kind. 
  • If the fabric is unclean, has a dingy appearance, or has a dull color, add one capful of an all-purpose bleach alternative to the pretreat or wash cycle. 
  • Chinos are built to endure being tumble dried at high temperatures. 
  • To make ironing easier, remove items from the dryer while they are still damp or dry them on the line. 
  • Cotton is capable of the greatest amount of shrinking. When a piece of clothing is exposed to strong heat, it will shrink dramatically, but when it is exposed to mild heat, it will shrink gradually. 
  • Chino pants should always be laundered first before making any adjustments to the length or fit. 
  • To make sure the item doesn't shrink anymore, wash it in hot water and dry it on the hot setting on your dryer. 
  • In order to get rid of wrinkles in clothes, use an iron set to its highest temperature setting or steam.
