The interlining was designed to provide drape and body within tailored jackets for both men and women. The client had experienced problems with a woven polyester-cotton blend as it lacked stiffness and lost shape after washing or dry cleaning.
Lesterdale’s capability to source, process and convert the fabric at a single site provided particular value to the customer, as they were currently buying the existing polyester-cotton alternative in 1500mm mill rolls and then sending it to a second site for further processing into a finished product.
With Lesterdale’s extensive range of technical fabrics it was clear a significant logistical saving could be made if we could meet the specific requirements of the application which included:
- 210mm widths supplied in 50 metre reels
- Fusible coating on both sides
- Wash & dry clean friendly
- Provide drape, stiffness and body
- Supplied on 50mm central cores
