What is Eyelet Fabric?

  • Eyelet fabric may be identified by the tiny patterned cutouts that are often completed with embroidered threads throughout the body of the fabric.
  • It can also be referred to the as perforated fabric. Eyelet yardage often has a lacy or otherwise ornamental selvage, which makes it ideal for use in the creation of adorable hems, sleeves, and necklines.
  • The pattern of the cloth, rather than its fiber composition or weave, is what is meant by the term "eyelet."
  • Traditionally, eyelets are crafted from a fabric with a simple weave, which is most often made of cotton or a cotton mix.
  • The most common colors for this fabric are timeless ones like black and white, but it's also common to see it in pastel tones. All kinds of eyelet textiles are accessible, from jersey to silk to leather; they're just like every other kind of cloth out there.
