Right at Home: Furniture Makers Nail It

If you lived in a comfortable home in 17th century France or 19th century England, your chairs might well have been embellished with nail-head trim. It was a clever, decorative way for craftsmen to secure materials to upholstered furniture.Another old fastener, the rivet, also was commonplace in manufacturing and shipbuilding centuries ago.Now, both nail-heads and rivets are having a moment in contemporary décor. On some pieces, they reinforce traditional elegance. On others, they offer an urban, edgier aesthetic."We're seeing nail-head trim - this 400-year-old detail - in lots of new applications, creating bold looks," says Seattle interior designer Timothy De Clue.Lisa Ferguson, an interior designer in Toronto, trimmed a pair of armless coral chairs with a decorative, antique-brass nail-head design along the skirt. She says both brass and warm satin detailing evoke classic glamour."It almost always gives the perception of a more luxurious piece, while adding texture," Ferguson says.But be mindful of inexpensive trims if you want a luxe look, she adds."Attention to detail and craftsmanship is what differentiates the good from the best. Pay special attention to the scale and spacing of the nail heads in relation to the piece of furniture, and always go for metal individual heads over rows of plastic if it is in your budget," she says. (www.lisafergusoninteriordesign.com )Ballard Designs has a selection of tufted and untufted headboards that you can customize in different fabrics and then finish with brass or silver nail heads. (www.ballarddesigns.com )Homegoods has some little slipper chairs in fun colors like peony pink, lime green and rich purple, embellished with silvery trim. The trim also edges a svelte bench - covered in a green, white and black classic pattern - perched on sleek black legs. All the pieces have a Palm Beach house vibe. (www.homegoods.com )Designer Jonathan Adler is also a fan of the nail. His Channing screen, named after Bette Davis' character in the movie "All About Eve," is a white lacquered room divider studded with polished nickel nail heads. He also plays with the motif in an irreverent tabletop confection: a clear acrylic obelisk filled with construction nails."Nail heads hit just the right note for today. They're the perfect combo of twinkly glamour and edgy attitude," Adler says.Nail-head trim works well with textured materials; Jayson Home's Bretton shelf unit is covered in burlap and trimmed in brass nails. (www.jaysonhome.com )Arhaus has a series of interesting chairs that combine recycled leather seats with backs upholstered in woven fabric; the materials meet at a nail-head border.The Portsmouth chair and settee incorporate the deconstructed trend in furniture with a more refined, finished look. Exposed framing along the backs and woven, grain-sack-textured upholstery are accented with nail trim. The Alpine Estates ottoman is part of a collection of pieces that put a contemporary spin on western style with cowhide, nail-head and wood trim. Or evoke the early days of ship travel with the Colburn steamer trunk, crafted of chestnut leather and set with antique brass nail heads. (www.arhaus.com )Jayson Home also plays off the vintage industrial vibe in today's decor with rivet detailing on distressed-iron and steel side tables, reminiscent of turn-of-the-century or shipboard tables.The retailer's Warp and Weft accent tables, made of riveted, recycled woven aluminum, reference World War II aircraft. There is a series of Ludlam pendant lighting fixtures here, too, crafted of caged iron slats and hammered rivets.

The Fashion of the Future: Scientists Usher in a New Age of Hi-tech Textiles
As London recovers from the glamour and glitz of its 25th annual Fashion Week, the haute couture caravan moves on from Milan to Paris. By the end of the trip, we should have some idea of the trends that will be making their way from catwalk to high street in the early months of 2010. But if you want to know what the hot looks will be a decade further on, don't ask a designer - talk to a scientist.I'm not suggesting that the white lab coat is about to become the new little black dress. But new ideas are being developed that could change everything about what we wear. For example, designers such as Manel Torres are exploring the possibility of spray-on clothing, and have successfully created prototypes. Torres's non-woven fabric can be made by spraying benign chemical formulations directly towards the body, distributing thousands of fibres across the wearer's skin, which then bind together to form disposable garments.If clothing does become a matter of "spray and go", it will bring a new meaning to the expression "throwing an outfit on". But it's not just the process of creating the fabrics: textile research has begun to address the idea of making them responsive. Imagine if your clothing could alter the feeling of a room when you walk in, to suit your preferences. Science could provide outfits that both interact with and control the environment they are in.On a smaller scale, this could be in the form of clothing that heats or cools in response to temperature changes: such fabrics are being researched by the University of Bath and London College of Fashion, engineered around systems found in nature. In the longer term, nanotechnology within fabrics could allow built interiors to become "smart" objects, allowing a room to adjust its smell, colour, temperature, texture, taste and sounds to suit its inhabitants' moods.Fabrics implanted with nanotechnology could even help you get a date. Scientists and designers are researching clothing that has the capacity to monitor the body's respiratory system, heartbeat and temperature controls and respond to alter your health or mood. Jenny Tillotson, a designer at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, has been developing a "smart" second skin, which has interactive fragrance technology permanently built into the clothing: examples include clothing and jewellery that release scents such as menthol, which could help alleviate medical problems including asthma attacks.Permanent dye will end running colours in laundry This innovation could also be used for more romantic purposes. In the future, your clothing could sense your body's indicators of physical attraction - such as increases in your temperature, heart rate and amount of sweat - and release hormones to attract the opposite sex.That's only the beginning, though. Within the decade, we could see stores selling shirts that turn us into portable power stations. Scientists are already looking to develop energy-scavenging fabrics, with nanotechnology built in that uses the kinetic energy from the wearer's movements and converts it into electricity for powering electronic devices - a similar principle, in fact, to the kinetic watches sold today. Such systems would be potentially life-saving for hikers and soldiers, but in the wider market could power mobile phones, MP3 players and more. Beyond this, scientists are examining how energy-scavenging fabrics could convert low-frequency vibrations into electricity, using nanowires entwined with the fabric's fibres to avoid affecting the look of the clothing.Beyond the advantages for the consumer, science fashion could also help save the planet, or at the least provide solutions to some of the ecological and sustainability issues in today's society. An interesting example of this is Suzanne Lee's "bio-couture" project, which is investigating the use of bacterial-cellulose, grown in a laboratory, to produce clothing: instead of using fibres from plants or animals, we could grow a dress in a vat of liquid.This may all seem like a distant dream, but it is not so far away. Science has long affected the way we dress, from the gradually improvement of wool and cotton production to the introduction of artificial fibres. Aside from those kinetic watches, there have been fads for wearable technology (such as the iPod) or heat-sensitive fabric (remember Global Hypercolor T-shirts?). And with continual advances in nanotechnology, the possibilities are set to increase.In fact, some of these textile innovations are appearing on the catwalk. In 2008, Hussein Chalayan brought his exquisite LED dress to the catwalks of Toyko. This video dress displayed a time-lapsed image of a rose opening up and closing, with an array of colours and light, made possible by 15,000 LEDs embedded in the fabric. Chalayan has also displayed clothes that changed shape before the spectator's eyes: zippers closing, cloth bunching and hemlines rising without human assistance, thanks to the use of micro-controllers, switches and motors.In short, it is a pivotal moment for textiles and Britain's leading fashion science schools, such as those at Central Saint Martins and the Royal College of Art, are leading the world in exciting design opportunities inspired by science. We can no longer compete with the cheap manufacturing of the Far East, but Britain is in a strong position to lead the way in combining creativity and science, to deliver technology-based textiles that are both fashionable and futuristic. We can't say for certain when any of the innovations I have described will be scientifically or commercially viable, but there is little doubt that these are exciting times for British fashion and science.Dr Raymond Oliver is a chemical engineer and a Senior Research Fellow at the Royal College of Art.

Nonwoven fabric is a fabric-like material made from staple fiber (short) and long fibers (continuous long), bonded together by chemical, mechanical, heat or solvent treatment. The term is used in the textile manufacturing industry to denote fabrics, such as felt, which are neither woven nor knitted. Some nonwoven materials lack sufficient strength unless densified or reinforced by a backing. In recent years, nonwovens have become an alternative to polyurethane foam.Non-woven materials are used in various applications, including(but not limited to): non woven shopping bags like garment bags, suit bags, etc. medical gowns, clothing accessories, diapers, wipes, covers, etc. We do all. We have been in non woven bags manufacturing industry for more than 9 years. Need to know more? Just let me know.
Kai Chan Crafts a New Profile
If you're one to read the still-damp tea leaves at the bottom of contemporary art's most recently consumed cup, you'd be hard-pressed not to divine some kind of moment for the apparently homespun techniques of traditional craft. Just in our own hometown, all of the Big Three museums feature, or just featured, major exhibitions that fit the thesis: At the ROM, El Anatsui's arresting hand-wrought aluminum tapestries offer a recycler's take on heroic, narrative fabric-making; at the Power Plant, Pae White's jarringly photo-realistic, computer woven fabric hangings of such things as crinkled plastic wrap and smoke; while at the AGO, Flesh and Blood , Shary Boyle's sensual, labour-intensive show of porcelain figurines and miniatures, among other things, made a bold statement for the hand-made and sensual in a sometimes physically-detached art world.But don't take Toronto's word for it: This year's Whitney Biennial, a highly subjective pulse-taking of what's important in American art every two years, featured a remarkable amount of stitching, weaving, carving and other homely skills more associated with humble craft-making than high-minded art. (There was a good amount of painting, too, reminding us that that medium is essentially craft as well.) So I suppose we can see Kai Chan as ahead of the curve. For the past 35 years, Chan has been working within his own fascinations, plying the usually well-defined boundary between, as the Whitney put it, "the applied and fine arts." At the apex of the conceptual era - think black and white performance documentation, piles of symbolically freighted pebbles on the gallery floor, aphoristic text on the wall - this border was particularly well-controlled. Perhaps not coincidentally, it's about the time - 1976 - Chan began making meticulous, craft-and-labour intense pieces using colourful silk thread. The work was also connected to a highly personal narrative in a moment when the personal and hand-wrought was, at best, gauche, stamping Chan's passport with resonant clarity.It's taken some time, but the wheel has turned, if not entirely, and the fruits of Chan's practice are getting their largest-ever airing at two museums in the GTA, at the Varley Art Centre in Unionville, and at the Textile Museum of Canada here in Toronto. Called "A Spider's Logic," it's an intelligent, well-crafted appeal, perhaps, to reconsider; those features long-sniffed at, in Chan's hands, become a bracing, quietly provocative practice, stitched together, so to speak, by a remarkably centred consistency.Chan describes his work as an attempt to reconcile the two halves of his life, growing up in a rustic, pre-industrial China, and his later experience as an immigrant to Canada, where the whole of modernity greeted him in one rapid gush on arrival. The work is primitive and modern, fine and rough, and almost always personal:Link (2010) is both huge and barely there, a delicately crafted web of black thread that overwhelms both with its spectacular, ethereal presence and Chan's labour in making it.In fact, nothing in this show seems absent of serious physical commitment - or, for that matter, simple, plain-spoken beauty.Playing Mountains, Playing Marriage , from 1986 - I'm not going to guess what he means; the mystery is one of the work's central pleasures - knits together hundreds, if not thousands of dogwood twigs into twin columns bound by blue and black thread.Chan transforms prosaic materials like thread - and toothpicks, which, for Yellowing Yellow (1996), he hand-painted hundreds of them before weaving them into a screen - into delicate, movingly human objects where his presence, through labour, is a subtle constant.Aurora , from 1976, is an early example of his commitment: thousands and thousands of feet of fine crimson silk thread shrouding a wooden core. Chinese mythology has it that those fated to have their paths cross are linked by an invisible red thread; Aurora speaks of a vast interconnectedness frankly and open-heartedly.Nearby, Family Moon , a crisply ordered, overlapping collage of buttons, is a charming if a little blunt rendering of Chan's dual existence: A grid of uniform bone-pale buttons pinned to the wall in a loose oblong form, overlapping a ring of bright, bangly ones - the loud, hectic churn of modern life set against the quiet uniformity of rural China (or, not knowing Cultural Revolution China, maybe it's the other way around). Either way, it has a simple, engaging beauty, like almost all of Chan's work, that gently prods the imagination.An admission: I did not make the Varley before writing this, thwarted by time, circumstance and a Don Valley Parkway paralyzed this week by snow. Having seen the portion downtown, I'll brave it. Chan's evocative craft reminds us the human hand and gesture will always have its place in art - one that's finally becoming less confined, again.Kai Chan: A Spider's Logic continues at the Textile Museum of Canada, 55 Centre Ave., Toronto until May 1, 2011, and at the Varley Art Gallery, 216 Main Street, Unionville, until Jan. 30.

Why Upholstery Fabric and Leather Terms Are Important to Me
All fabric and leather upholstery coverings are made up of many things. Sometimes if you want to do a little research on what a particular fabric or leather is made of and how the texture would affect the durability, some unfamiliar terms might be used. In this article is an extensive list of most of the terms that would be used for a particular fabric or leather created. Having this knowledge at your fingertips will help you get through the technical terminology sometimes used be manufacturers for this explanation. As professionals, we hope these basic terms will help you. Good Luck and happy learning!FABRIC TERMS ABSORBENT:This is the ability to take on and retain moisture. The degree of absorbency directly determines how a fiber will hold soils and stains.ACETATE:Very lustrous and luxurious to the touch. Takes dyes, and tone on tone dyes very well and is resistant to pilling. A synthetic fiber used to make fabric take on a silk like appearance. Relatively low cost and is strong when blended with stronger fibers.ACRYLIC:A synthetic fiber with a soft wooly feel. Accepts vivid colors and retains its shape well. Have fair abrasion resistance and excellent sunlight resistance. Good in velvet and other plush fabrics.BALANCE:It is the proportion of vertical (warp) to filling yarns. The more even the balance, the more durable the fabric.BACKING:A coating that is applied or sprayed onto the back of fabric to prevent seam slippage and excess wear.BONDED FABRIC:A fabric consisting of two or more layers of cloth joined together with resin, rubber, adhesive, or foam.BOUCLIS:A plain weave using uneven yarns with a loop surface. This gives the fabric a rough appearance to the face of the cloth.BROCADE:A multi-colored jacquard woven fabric with a floral or figured pattern emphasized against a plain background of a satin weave. These patterns are formed through the introduction of additional filling yarns.BROCATELLE:This is a variation of brocade. The end result is that the fabric appears to have more depth.CALANDER:Process of pressing fabric between two rollers or plates to attain a smooth or glazed finish.CARDING:A process of opening and cleaning fibers, usually cotton. This separates fibers from each other, lays them parallel, and condenses them into a singular continuous untwisted strand, called "slivers." CHINTZ:This plain tightly woven fabric made from fine yarns. These yarns are processed with a glazed finish, which gives it a polished appearance. Chintz can be plain dyed or printed.COATED FABRICS:This is a surface coating. Coated fabric finishes use substances such as lacquer, resin, plastic, or varnish, to give them impermeability for spot and stain resistance. The higher quality coated fabrics can simulate real leather.CORDUROY:A fabric made of cotton or nylon with ridges or cords in the pile. This fabric is highly durable and cleans very well. It is widely used as a high use fabric.COTTON:This is one of the world's oldest and most popular fabrics. Cotton is strong, versatile, soft, and resistant to pilling. Fabric made of yarn spun and woven from the seedpod of the cotton plant. This fiber is frequently blended with others. Cotton is popular for home upholstery use because of its natural, environmentally safe properties.DAMASK:A firm textured fabric with patterns similar to brocade, but lighter. It is a glossy jacquard woven fabric with floral or geometric patterns, which may combine satin weaves with others.FLOAT:This is the portion of a filling yarn that rides over two or more adjacent vertical (warp) yarns. The smooth texture of satin-damask is the result of large floats in the fabric.FLOCKS:The process of flocking is more of a printing method than weaving. Gluing short fibers onto fabric backings, using an adhesive, makes flocked velvets. The textures vary from flocked velvet to woven velvet. Woven is softer.HAITIAN COTTON:This fiber is loomed by using bits of seeds, stems, and other impurities. Water can cause these seeds to release a dye that may cause damage. Haitian cotton is woven using a basket weave. The fiber is strong, but great care needs to be taken with this form of cotton. It is highly absorbent, making soil and stain removal difficult and costly.JACQUARD:Intricate method of weaving in which a head-motion at the top of the loom holds and operates a set of punched cards according to the pattern desired. Jacquard fabrics include damask, brocades, and brocatelle.LINEN:Fabric woven from the natural fine fiber derived from the flax plant. Some properties of linen are high moisture absorption, no fuzziness, a natural luster and stiffness.MOIRE:This is a high luster fabric. Moire has a watered silk effect on fabrics. This fabric is easily damaged by water. A simple liquid spill can permanently remove the moir effect. This fabric can only be cleaned with solvent, and should only be used in a low use or decorative area of your home.NYLON:This synthetic fiber is extremely durable and long wearing. Though fairly heat sensitive, this man-made fiber has good soil resistance, and low water absorbency. Nylon has a high wear resistance and good cleaning characteristics. It is less resistant to pilling, and has a soft but cool feel unless blended with other fibers.OLEFIN:The highest stain resistance of all fabrics. Olefin is extremely strong and durable, with high resistance to soiling. This fabric can have a soft feel, depending on the tightness of the weave, and resists color fading.PILLING:This occurs when a fiber is strong and flexible. Instead of breaking off, the fibers elongate and twist together to form unsightly balls of fiber.POLYESTER:Another synthetic fiber is very strong. However, it does not resist some soils and stains as well as some other fibers. Polyester looks very much like cotton, but has low to moderate resistance to wear strong light. It has a very soft feel and appearance. It would be a good choice for a low use area.RAYON:This fiber is low cost and very versatile. Rayon blends well with other fabrics, such as nylon. By itself, rayon is a poor fabric choice. Rayon should be solvent cleaned. This is a natural fiber with many use and cleaning limitations.SILK:This natural fiber spun from the cocoons of silkworms. Silk is the strongest of the protein fibers, but is easily damaged by sunlight. Silk is highly absorbent, making soil and stains difficult to remove. This is a fiber that is best blended with more durable fabrics.TAPESTRIES:These are complex vertical (warp) woven brocades often displaying pictorial scenes. Tapestries are loomed on jacquard looms and are usually a blend of fibers to get the desired end result.VELOUR:This is a term given to fabrics generally with a short cut pile. Velour is usually cotton or nylon. This fabric gives a plush appearance to whatever it covers. It is fairly delicate and should not be used in high use areas.VELVET:A cloth in which a succession of rows of short cut pile stand so close together as to give an even uniform appearance. Velvet also, is usually cotton or nylon giving this fabric a very soft and luxurious look and feel. The nylon velvet is more durable than the cotton. The visual appearance of each is very similar, but the fiber differences should determine where it is to be used.VELVETEEN:Velveteen is a durable, sheared pile woven fabric. It is often manufactured of cotton or man-made fabric, which resembles velvet, though the pile is not as upright. The fiber characteristics are the same as velvet and velveteen.WARP:When a fabric is loomed, the vertical yarns are called warp or filling yarns.WEFT:These are the yarns that run horizontally in a fabric.The number of warp or weft yarns used, changes the density and the type of weave used, thus determining the end result.WOOL:A natural fiber made from the fur of sheep and other animals. Wool is exceptionally absorbent but loses strength when wet.LEATHER TERMS ANILINE:this is the type of dye used to give the hide its initial color.ANILINE DYING:this is the process of putting hides into a drum. The dye is allowed to soak completely through the hide.ANILINE FINISH:Also known as pure aniline leather. Aniline finish leather is full grain leather, which has been soaked in aniline dye. With this finish, no pigmented or clear-coated finishes are applied. Only the best hides, which are relatively free of gross imperfections, can be made into aniline finish leather. It is soft, pliable and considered the premier grade of leathers.BRANDS:This mark is a simple, easily recognized pattern made by burning the cattle's skin with a hot iron. Used for the purposes of identification, brands are usually cut out of the hides and do not appear on the finished upholstery.BUFFING:Hides are frequently buffed, using a large sanding machine to minimize the appearance of gross imperfections, such as scratches or wrinkles, in the finished leather. This process makes the leather more uniform, but also removes the natural grain and markings that make each hide unique and individual.CORRECTED GRAIN:Top grain leather that has been sanded or buffed to remove any gross imperfections in the hide. The hide is then usually pigmented and embossed.DRUM DYED:This dying process is accomplished by tumbling leather in a rotating drum to obtain total penetration of the dye.EMBOSSING / PLATING:Embossing or plating is the process that creates a texture on leather by impressing it with a pattern. This is mechanically imprinted using heat or high pressure to create patterns like ostrich, alligator, or floral prints on the leather. Top grain with excessive imperfections is frequently buffed smooth and then embossed with a grain pattern.FINISHING:This makes the leather more durable, coloring substances are applied to the hide, which provide abrasion and stain resistance as well as color enhancement. This process usually requires three or four coating operations. Generally, the more finish that is applied to the leather, the stiffer it becomes. Aniline or semi aniline dyed or vat dyed leathers, will tend to be softer than pigmented leathers, since this can be overcome by milling the hide. (See Milling).FULL ANILINE LEATHER:Aniline dyed and aniline finished leathers have no pigments. This type of leather has all of nature's marks still fully visible, enhancing the beauty of the hide.FULL GRAIN:Unaltered surface of the hide, which has been aniline, dyed but has not been buffed or sanded.GRAIN:These are patterns or markings on the leather surface. Naturally occurring grain is caused by wrinkles, marking, and pores in the hide.HAND:The softness or feel of the leather is referred as the "hand".Well, there you have it, all the major info on what these terms mean to you. Good luck and happy shopping.

Nonwoven fabric is a fabric-like material made from staple fiber (short) and long fibers (continuous long), bonded together by chemical, mechanical, heat or solvent treatment. The term is used in the textile manufacturing industry to denote fabrics, such as felt, which are neither woven nor knitted. Some nonwoven materials lack sufficient strength unless densified or reinforced by a backing. In recent years, nonwovens have become an alternative to polyurethane foam.Non-woven materials are used in various applications, including(but not limited to): non woven shopping bags like garment bags, suit bags, etc. medical gowns, clothing accessories, diapers, wipes, covers, etc. We do all.

Are Universals Woven into the Fabric Of...?
Of our minds. Yes, universals obviously exist metaphysically. Whether they are generated by every person on a case by case basis, or "tapped into" somehow to allow understanding amongst us all, is not know. Therefore to deny either of the above possibilities is a matter of opinion, not fact.1. did they use slingshots for hunting in the stone ages? if so how did they make slingshots back then?Stone Age Man did indeed use slings for hunting, and fighting, but not the modern forked stick and rubber band variety, nor the Wrist Rocket rubber tube slingshots. Ancient slings were made from leather or woven fabric. Overall length ranged from 3 to six feet in length. Each end of the sling taper up in width toward the middle where a pocket was formed at the widest part of the sling. Ammunition in earliest times were stones, preferably smooth stones from creek or river beds. The stone was placed in the pocket. It was launched by one of two methods. 1 - An overhand throw with one end of the sling released just before the hand pointed at the target. This was fast and delivered the stone with great force and accuracy. 2 - By swinging the sling and stone around in a circular motion over the head and releasing as the stone it come around toward the target. The overhand method is more accurate, and more powerful, but the circular swing will give greater range. Slingers were used in warfare up through the Middle Ages. The Roman Army used large numbers of slingers, and Medieval Armies used slingers to good advantage. Medieval slingers often used a version utilizing a three or four foot long staff with a sling attached to the end. One end of the sling was firmly attached to the staff, and the other end hooked over a short spike. These slings, used in an overhand throw greatly increased the power of the sling, much like the spear throwing sticks used by many primitive societies. Military slingers generally used lead pellets or bullets since there was no time to scavenge river rocks. You can often find Roman sling pellets, marked with the number of the Legion for which it was cast, for sale on auction sites like e-bay. If you Google "sling" you will find quite a few different sites about slings. There are even a few that have patterns for making your own sling, either from leather or macramed from yarn. Doc2.

Applying eyelets/grommets to clothing?The tool is called a grommet setter. they cost several dollars. Two important hints: 1) it should be hit with a mallet, not with a hammer. If all you have is a hammer, but leather or heavy cardbord or duct tape over the face of the hammer. The two possible results of ignoring this are bits of metal flying and injuring someone and the shaft of the grommet setting "mushrooming" into sharp curls that will cut your hands as you use it. 2) punch a hole for the grommet *weakens* fabric. It's standard for leather, but not for woven fabric. For fabric, use a awl to push the threads apart enough for the shaft of the grommet. Then add the washer and use the setter to make the grommet's shaft mushroom or curl to hold the washer in place. It's nice to have a special metal plate under the grommet, but scrap wood or a junk magazine will protect the work surface. Do not do this on the dining room table. P. S. eyelets and grommets are two different things. Eyelets are one piece, no washer. Grommets are sturdier
How Has 'Islam Has Been Woven into the Fabric of Our Country Since Its Founding?'?
only as it relates to the Barbary pirates; but I do not think he expected anyone to think of that1. how has 'Islam Has Been Woven Into the Fabric of Our Country Since Its Founding?'?Well.2. What exactly is "pilling" on clothing?Pilling happens when a loosely (usually) woven fabric is rubbed over and over. Sometimes this happens during wearing sometimes in a closet that is too full. It can also happen while washing, especially if the washing instructions are not followed. It pulls fibers out of the fabric and rubs them together to form a ball or "pill" that is still attached to the garment. never pull them off. carefully cut them when necessary, but each time it happens it creates a weak spot in the fabric3. How do I wash place mats that are woven and fabric?I wash mine in the kitchen sink with a mild soap and rinse well, lay flat to dry, press if necessary4. What is Non-Woven FabricNonwoven fabrics have become an extremely important segment of the textile industry in recent years. The technical developments in polymers, nonwoven processing and fabric finishing have led to significant improvements in fabric physical and mechanical properties including fabric handling and drapability, tensile properties, abrasion resistance, pilling and washing stability, dyeing and printing that create prospects for nonwoven fabric applications in particular in apparel outerwear. This chapter briefly discusses the various nonwoven fabric production processes including web formation, web consolidation and finishing. An introduction to different joining techniques is also discussed and at the end future trends in the non woven market are outlined. Nonwovens do not depend on the interlacing of yarn for internal cohesion. Intrinsically they have neither an organized geometrical structure. They are essentially the result of the relationship between one single fiber and another. This provides nonwoven fabrics with characteristics of their own, with new or better properties (absorption, filtration) and therefore opens them up to other applications. Non-woven fabrics are felted or bonded together Non-woven fabrics have many uses in textile products particularly as internal strengtheners and to assist sewing, such as interfacing Laminated fabrics may not be non-woven but bonded together with heat or glue Nonwovens are in fact products in their own right with their own characteristics and performances, but also weaknesses. They are around us and one uses them every day, often without knowing it. Indeed they are frequently hidden from view. Nonwovens can be made absorbent, breathable, drapable, flame resistant, heat sealable, light, lint-free, mouldable, soft, stable, stiff, tear resistant, water repellent if needed. Obviously, though, not all the properties mentioned can be combined in a single nonwoven, particularly those that are contradictory. Non-woven fabrics are made in two main ways: they are either felted or they are bonded. The fabrics use fibres rather than yarns; these are laid randomly or in a uniform way to make web-like layers. They are held together by either the felting or bonding process. Wool felt is the most common non-woven fabric and is produced by using short staple fibres from wool or other animal hairs (such as camel). Wool is an ideal fibre because its surface has natural hooks like scales, which when moisture, heat and vigorous movement are applied, interlock with each other. The heat and damp conditions cause the fibres to curl up, and the scales locking together prevents the fibres from straightening out again. When you wash a natural wool jumper and it shrinks in size the jumper is actually felting and you can not make it bigger again no matter how hard you try to stretch it back. Because the fibers are loosely connected, nonwoven fabrics are often more porous than other forms of textiles. In order to gain integrity, the fibers in nonwoven fabric are bonded by using one of the following methods. There are three main methods of making bonded fabrics: Dry laid: a web of fibres is laid in a drum and hot air is injected to bond the fibres together. Wet-laid: a web of fibres is mixed with a solvent that softens the fibres and releases a glue-like substance that bonds the fibres together and then the web is laid out to dry. Direct spun: the fibres are spun on to a conveyer belt and glues are sprayed on to the fibres, which are then pressed to bond; if the fibres are thermoplastic (will change shape with heat) then the glue is not needed in this process.
