What is Dobby Fabric?
- Fabric made on a dobby loom has a rough appearance due to the dobby weave pattern.
- Both the warp and the weft of the fabric are of the same color.
- To bring attention to the rough design of the cloth, satin threads are sometimes used.
- Although the cloth is woven via a loom, as is the case with other forms of weaving, a piece of specialized equipment known as a dobby is required in order to connect the fabric to the loom. The use of this dobby machine makes it possible to create prints that are woven into the cloth.
- Designs produced by a dobby loom have a propensity to be repetitive and patterned all over the surface.
- The dobby fabric is constructed using a wide array of fibers, including cotton, silk, nylon, and so on.
- In the year 1840, the production of the Fabric began for the very first time.
- During the weaving process, a dobby is necessary in order to properly connect the Fabric to the loom. This is also the case while weaving other types of textiles.
- Using this dobby technology, it is possible to create prints that are woven directly into the fabric.
- Hence, this was the origin of "Dobby Fabric."
What Makes it Stand Out?
Slightly more textured than plain fabric and less complex than jacquard.
Dobby has a pleasant drape to its fabric.
The fabric is semi-sheer that is slightly opaque in appearance.
It does not easily wrinkle, which makes the ironing and folding processes simpler.
