What is Polypropylene Fabric?

  • Fabric made from polypropylene, a thermoplastic polymer, is referred to as polypropylene fabric.
  • This non-polar and partly crystalline form of plastic belongs to the polyolefin family of compounds.

  • The history of man-made fibers began at the end of the 19th century with the first semi-synthetic or regenerated materials, Van Oosten. Even though completely synthetic polymers were developed in the early 20th century, many man-made fibers that are currently in widespread use were not fully exploited until the 1960s and 1970s.
  • The novel catalysts for polymerization that Ziegler and Natta invented in 1954 were largely responsible for the commercial success of isotactic polypropylene beginning in the early 1960s.
  • It was developed into a significant kind of plastic that was put to use in a wide variety of shapes and applications by means of a variety of production techniques.
  • A significant amount of polypropylene is used in the fibers that make up textiles, upholstery, and carpeting.
  • Since the 1980s, there has been a surge in the manufacturing, consumption, and uses of this polymer due to the application of even more effective catalysts and property advancements. As a result, PP is now the most prevalent fiber that is used all over the globe.

What Makes it Stand Out 


It is a soft, airy, and lightweight fabric. 


The fabric is easy to drape.


The polypropylene fabric is stain resistant and will not fade easily.

Applications & Usage 


Diapers, sportswear, etc.


Food packaging, sunglasses, bags, etc. 

Care Instructions

  • The most effective method for cleaning polypropylene fabric is to use antibacterial hand soap when washing, and then to hang it out to dry in the air both inside and out.
  • You might also use an antibacterial spray to clean the bags before using them.
