Chambray – a dazzling material on the rise
The Chambray is commonly regarded as the little sister of denim, as both fabrics look a little bit alike. The trained eye though discovers the difference quite quickly - and at the latest when touching them, the two fabrics differ strikingly.
The Chambray is a woven material in which warp and weft threads have different colors. The warp thread is often white, while the weft can be a thread in any other color. With us you will find even more, at times unusual color combinations that have one thing in common: their so-called 'frosted effect', which refers to the glimmering of the white (or other colored) thread and creates a shimmer effect that is guaranteed to catch anyone's eye!
Our certified Chambray & its properties
Chambray, and that's what sets it apart from denim, is woven in a classic plain weave that's less taut than twill weave, making it perfect for flowing surfaces.
The basis of our Chambray is Ugandan organic cotton. • Chambray not only looks fantastic, it also feels nice. The fabric is soft and comfortable - which is why it is especially being used for shirts or blouses.
- Gucci, Burberry - the big fashion houses have shown in recent years that Chambray is not only suitable for casual looks, but also high fashion! We can only agree with that and plead for Chambray to be festive.
- Chambray is extremely easy to clean. It is best to wash it at 40 degrees in the fine cycle and to then let it air dry. It may also be ironed, but only at medium temperature.
- Did you know that? The Chambray is named after the weaver Jean Baptiste, who lived in the Flambian city of Cambrai in the 13th century and was the first to weave different colored warps and wefts.
- Chambray clothing is available in a variety of brilliant designs - because we know you have your own taste. In addition to classic colors such as natural blue, navy or sapphire, we also offer a radiant ruby, a very noble carnelian or a powdery natural yellow.
