Fabric, what is fabric? The word fabric is a word that resonates with most of us, but how many of us really think about the complexity and art behind the creation of fabric. Well here at Blue Moon Fabric, we are truly passionate about understanding every step of the process.
To understand fabric, one must first understand the many different functions it serves such as clothing, shoes, bags, and homewares like bedsheets, cushions, and towels and so much more. It can be thick or thin, rough or smooth, heavy or lightweight; the qualities of different types of fabric depend on what it's made from. With all of the contributions fabric makes to our everyday lives, it also provides us with the opportunity to express our creativity in the form of art.
Stretchable fabric is what we take pride in specializing in here at Blue Moon Fabrics. Spandex has become highly popular in sportswear in recent years. It is safe to say, as a society we are becoming more aware about the importance and effects of physical activity on our well being and health.
