What is Dotted Swiss Fabric?

  • A fabric made of translucent cotton that is dotted all over with tiny dots is called dotted Swiss.
  • It is a fine cotton fabric with a simple weave that is lightweight, and it is embellished with embroidery or flocking that has dotted designs.
  • The series of dots may be done in a number of different ways and colors. Dots may be placed in a pattern that ranges from regular to irregular, and they can be a single color or many colors.
  • The dots might have the same color as the ground, but they could also have a distinct hue.

  • In Switzerland, the cloth was woven by hand on looms that were operated by hand. It is believed that the pattern was created about the year 1750 in St. Gallen, Switzerland, which became known as a hub for textile production in the 15th century.
  • Cotton was used in its production, and handlooms were used to create a fabric that measured 32 inches across.
  • The dots were originally made using a process called swivel weaving, which was a kind of weaving that enabled multicolored motifs to be woven into a foundation fabric
  • This method of weaving was progressively phased out in favor of others, such as embroidery, flocking, and printing, amongst others.
  • In today's world, mixed fabrics may also be used to form dotted swiss, which is a popular pattern.
