Cotton Corduroy Fabric

Thought to have originated in Manchester, England during the Industrial Revolution, corduroy is easily distinguished by its typical ‘cord’ or the velvet ridges that run vertically on the fabric. Generally used to create sports jackets and pants, it is considered a dressed up casual fabric designed to hold warmth and durability. Categorized by the number of cords or ‘wales’ per inch, lower numbered wales are thicker and higher numbered wales are thinner.
