What is Greige Fabric? 

  • Greige is a term that refers to a cloth that has not been bleached or colored and may either be knitted or woven.
  • At their most basic level, you could say that these textiles are in their natural or unfinished state.
  • Before dying and printing, gray materials are scrubbed (to make them clean) and occasionally bleached (to make them lose their original color).
  • Products labeled as "greige" are tainted with a wide variety of contaminants.

Process of Making Fabric

  • Remove any natural or man-made contaminants from the fibers, as well as any that were added during the manufacturing process and could cause problems with the dying and/or finishing processes.
  • This increases the capacity of the fibers to absorb dye and chemical solutions that are dissolved in water.
  • Fabrics should be given the right amount of brightness or whiteness based on what is needed, especially when bright or pastel colors are needed.
