Serge

What is Serge Fabric ? 

  • Serge is a type of twill fabric that has diagonal lines or ridges on both sides, made with a two-up, two-down weave.
  • Traditionally, this fabric was made using wool or worsted. Cotton, silk, viscose, synthetic fibres or blends of these can be used.

History 

  • The origins of serge appear to be quite ancient.
  • The word is derived from the Greek serikos, which means “silken,” suggesting that the fabric was probably brought to Europe from China.
  • By the 8th century CE, people were certainly using serge, but the fabric was available primarily to the upper classes.
  • Europeans also developed a version made from wool, with production being centered in France by the 1500s, typically using high-quality English wool.
