Lebenskleidung Popeline – an overview
The canvas weave creates a fine fabric structure that makes Popeline indispensable wherever things need to be elegant and comfortable - in blouses, thinner jackets or fine transition coats, for example.
- The Popeline has a thick weft thread and a thin warp thread. The result is a fine ribbed structure that is characteristic of the fabric. While in the past it was often made of silk, today other materials have prevailed - including, of course, cotton.
- In the 19th century, Popeline was mainly used for clothes and upholstery. The fact that it strikes the perfect balance between a high-quality look and great durability makes it so versatile. Even today, its use knows no bounds - so you can sew it to blouses, dresses or jackets as well as home textiles.
- Popeline is a wonderful fabric for beginners. Due to its smooth surface and the fact that it doesn't need elastane, Popeline is easy to tame and delivers great results in no time at all, both inside and out.
- Crease-resistant and always in top form - that's Popeline. If it does show a few wrinkles, you can iron it. Otherwise, just wash it at low temperatures, pull it smooth and let it dry in the fresh air.
