Oxford fabric

The oxford fabric is a general name to the fabric which has strong and durable characteristics. It started from UK where Oxford University used this fabric to make the school uniform. Due to its two-tone color, with harmonious color and comfortable characteristics, oxford fabric has been popular in Europe and the United States for over 100years.

As the times going, oxford fabrics are not only made from cotton or linens, but from polyester or nylon. The weaving is not simple plain but with many patterns like twill, rip-stop, diamond, etc. At the meantime, in order to make the oxford fabrics more stronger, people add many kinds of coating or laminating onto the fabrics like PU, PVC, TPU, TPE, ULY, etc and also can add different agents in these coatings like flame retardant, anti-UV, anti-mildew, waterproof, etc to meet different using. Now oxford fabric is widely used for making tents, bags, luggage, awning, chair, shoes, etc.

Softshell fabric

The softshell fabric are 2-layer,2.5-layer,or 3-layer construction bonded the PU,TPU,TPE or PTFE membrane to both the outer four-way stretch fabric and the inner polar fleece lining. The middle membrane layer,a eco-friendly material,contains billions of microscopic pores which are smaller than a drop of water,but bigger than a molecule of moisture vapor. So while water in its liquid form cannot penetrate the membrane,as moisture vapor it can easily escape. Our laminated fabrics -- which are both excellently waterproof and powerfully breathable at the same time -- also have the features of comfort stretch,no noise,and light weight. The benefit of the 3-layer construction is: no movement between the layers,which means less wear and tear,and enhanced durability. The fabrics are often used for outdoor wear,such as sportswear,softshell Jacket,ski jackets,casual pants,etc.
