Twill is a fabric that is defined by a specific weaving technique that shows diagonal ridges in the fabric. This makes it softer to the touch than plain weave fabrics made from the same fibre. A twill weave is altered in each row (over one yarn and under two or three yarns), producing this conspicuous line pattern.

Twill has a high thread count making it more hardwearing and also requires less ironing. It washes at max. 30ºC, do not bleach, do not tumble dry, iron cool (max. 110 ºC) and dry clean (normal cycle). Thanks to our quality sublimation printing process the colour fastness is very strong providing vibrant color and strong wash durability.
Our Eco Twill is made from 33% recycled polyester (learn more about recycled polyester here) from pre and post consumer plastic, meaning that we do not needed to create new raw materials for these fabrics, and instead we used non-biodegradable materials, saving plastics heading to landfills, energy and water, while making an active and effective contribution towards preserving nature.
Thanks to its easy care like low wash temperatures and less ironing this also saves energy throughout the life of the fabric.
