JNGLE ROAD CLOTHING specializes in natural fibres…. Here’s some information about them:
An elegant, beautiful, durable, and refined fabric.
One of the strongest of the vegetable fibres and has 2 to 3 times the strength of cotton.
Smooth, making the finished fabric lint free.
Softer and finer the more it is washed.
From flax, a fibre taken from the stalk of the plant. The luster is from the natural wax content.
Easily dyed and the color does not fade when washed.
It does wrinkle easily but also presses easily.
Highly absorbent and a good conductor of heat, making for cool garments.
One of the world’s most sustainable fibres, needing little water.
Made from the stems of the cannabis sativa plant. The stems are processed to dissolve the gum or pectin and separate the fibers which are then processed again and woven into yarns and fabric.
Is like linen in both hand and appearance.
Withstands water better than any other textile product.
Is mould, mildew and UV resistant.
Is naturally grown without pesticides or chemicals
Is cool, soft, comfortable, the principal clothing fiber of the world.
Is from the cotton plant’s seed pod. The fiber is hollow in the center and, under a microscope looks like a twisted ribbon. "Absorbent" cotton will retain 24-27 times its own weight in water and is stronger when wet than dry. This fiber absorbs and releases perspiration quickly, thus allowing the fabric to "breathe". Cotton can stand high temperatures and takes dyes easily. Chlorine bleach can be used to restore white garments to a clear white but this bleach may yellow chemically finished cottons or remove color in dyed cottons. Boiling and sterilizing temperatures can also be used on cotton without disintegration. Cotton can also be ironed at relatively high temperatures, stands up to abrasion and wears well.
Mercerized cotton is treated to permanently straighten the cotton fibers which then becomes a smooth, rod-like fiber that is uniform in appearance with a high luster. Cotton is often blended with other fibers such as polyester, linen, wool, to "blend" the best properties of each fiber.
Extremely soft and comfortable.
Naturally absorbent and moisture wicking
More breathable than cotton
Naturally antibacterial, antifungal, antistatic and odour resistant
Thermo-regulating – keeping you cool when it is hot and warm when it is cool
