Finishing processes are applied to the fabric after it has been woven. The finishing has a lot to do with how a fabric feels both initially and throughout its lifespan. The employed finishing processes serve a number of purposes. They help to maintain the lustre and hand feel of the fabric, reduce the amount of wrinkling, preserve the colour brightness and give the fabric a smooth, silky finish.
Finishing processes are incredibly important and proper weaving and finishing techniques, applied to the right kinds of yarn, are key ingredients to producing the world’s best textiles.
