Create something truly unique and special by printing on cotton drill fabric. This 100% pure cotton textile is durable, hard-wearing, and beautifully soft. Use to to create a wide range of items, from clothing to soft furnishings.
Cotton drill fabric has a soft and smooth handle. The distinct diagonal weave adds a lively texture to the face, but will not interfere with your design. The reverse is noticeably different and the fabric is almost completely opaque. It is a firm and taut textile with no give. With a solid drape, it is a firm yet malleable material. Made from 100% pure cotton, this is a breathable and cool fabric to wear.
Your designs will be printed with precision on the cotton drill. The characteristic drill weave will be apparent through the print, which will give your design even more personality and depth. Colours look vibrant and bold against the warm base tone, and are given a slight sheen from the face of the textile. Details come across very well with a slightly soft finish.
Drill fabric is a popular choice for dressmakers, designers and crafters. Thanks to its plethora of qualities, such as being soft, durable, strong, malleable, and smooth, it works well for a whole host of uses. It is similar to denim and as such is a very taut textile. Use it to make lightweight denim jackets, dresses, skirts, shirts and even overalls. It is also good for upholstery, summer shoes and bags.
Frequently asked questions on Cotton Drill 255gsm:
What is drill fabric?
Drill is a hardy textile with a characteristic diagonal weave. Normally made from 100% cotton, it can be either unbleached or bleached. It is a fabric that has been used for many years. Originally used for the construction of uniforms, it has somewhat expanded. Although it is hard-wearing, it is very soft and somewhat cool against the skin, making it lovely to wear. It has a taut construct with very little, if indeed any, give.
What can I make with this fabric?
Cotton drill fabric was originally used to make uniforms, but it has come a long way and is now a very popular choice for a wide range of end uses. It is a similar fabric to bluette, denim, hickory cloth, and some gaberdine textiles to name a few. Our customers love using drill to make lighter weight denim clothing such as jackets, dresses, and shirts. It's also great for accessories, workwear, overalls and upholstery.
Do you have any other similar textiles?
Drill is a similar fabric to denim, but it is usually smoother and generally piece dyed. Traditional drill, like our drill fabric, is made from 100% cotton and is normally a relatively heavy-weight textile. The most similar fabric to cotton drill that we carry is Bull denim. This is also made from 100% cotton, but is heavier weighing in at 400gsm. They are both tightly woven and taut, but with a soft handle.
