1. Polyester:also known as “polyester fiber”, has a very wide range of applications in clothing. In the field of fabric night and blinds, the vast majority are also polyester fiber products. Polyester can mimic the texture of other fabrics, such as hemp, cotton, silk and so on. And the price is low, very suitable for home users. The disadvantage is that it is easy to generate static electricity, and it is not breathable. Especially on clothing that requires frequent friction, it will be very obvious.

2. Blend:

We said earlier that polyester can imitate the texture of other fabrics, but it has static electricity, air permeability and other defects. Then add some real material to the polyester – for example, when polyester is used to imitate cotton, add some real cotton thread to the polyester – so that not only the texture is more realistic, but also the characteristics of the fabric will be more similar to the material. The practice of adding polyester to other natural fabrics is called “blending”.

3. Poly-cotton of night and blinds:

Polyester cotton is a blend, is a combination of polyester and pure cotton. The reason why it is listed in the fabric is mainly because the public likes cotton more than all other materials. The breathable effect and soft texture of cotton are the best in all fabrics. The disadvantage is that it is easy to wrinkle, especially when washing.

4. Pure cotton of night and blinds:

Few curtains use pure cotton material, which is the most popular fabric in clothing, but almost everyone shouts in the field of curtains. The main reason is that the draping of pure cotton fabrics is too poor, and no one wants their curtains to always arch and never be smooth. However, in some Instagram styles, there is often a cotton curtain pose. But again: it may work, but it’s really hard to use.

5. Human-made fibers of night and blinds:

Polyester is a polyester fiber, which is a synthetic substance. Fibers are the larger definition, which includes both synthetic and recycled fibers. When buying fabric, mentioning “made fibers” often means that the fabric is made from recycled fibers. What is recycled fiber? For example, plastic bags, beverage bottles, can be reprocessed into artificial fibers. The price of this fabric is very low, but the effect is no different from polyester. The only difference, perhaps, is that recycled fibers have a little more static electricity.

6. Flax of night and blinds:

Linen is a natural material, which makes the surface of the cloth granulated. Our common “hemp curtains” are often polyester imitation. Real linen curtains are very heavy, but the shading effect is not as good as polyester (polyester fiber is finer). In terms of texture, even if the polyester technology is superb, it is difficult to completely restore the rough beauty of linen.

7. Flocked

Flocking fabric is a layer of velvet on the surface, it feels soft, and many bedrooms will like this feeling. But this layer of velvet is not born, but glued on: on the base of the fabric, the short fiber is vertically bonded, and the short fiber is that layer of velvet. As for the fabric base, it is generally made of polyester or polyester cotton. The effect of flocking curtains has a lot to do with the fabric base. Base thickness is large, the curtain feels good. The base density is large, and the curtain shading is good.
