Mask, Face Shield, PPE, Gloves: The New Normal

It’s been four months since our lives have been upended by Covid-19, hurling us at a kind of life only seen in sci-fi movies.

Since the pandemic arrived, we have quickly adapted to the New Normal, donning PPEs every time we leave the safety of our homes, like face masks, face shields and, in some cases, even gloves.

Immediately after the government implemented a nationwide enhanced community qauarantine in mid-March, FabricOnlinePH Online Shop started creating and selling face masks, face shields, and contributed to the safety of our frontliners by having the tafetta silver-back lining fabric readily available for clients that wish to donate PPEs to various hospitals.

Microfiber textile: For Sale in PH

Microfiber is normally used to make upholstery, cleaning cloths, apparel, or industrial filters, as it is ideal for water repellency, and other filtering needs.

Face mask made from microfiber.

WHAT IS MICROFIBER?

The textile microfiber is made from super fine synthetic yarns, which are polyester and nylon. The fibers are so ultra thin, up to 100 times finer than a human hair! This is why it’s great at repelling water. It has a slight positive charge, which means it also traps dusty bits (they’re negatively charged) instead of spreading them.

This is why microfiber can be used to make a face mask, which you can wash and reuse. (However, frontliners are discouraged to use microfiber face masks, and must continue using the required medical-grade PPEs.

BREATHABLE

Microfiber is extremely breathable, even while repelling water. This is the reason why it’s popular for linens and sports wear. It helps regulate temperature and keep you comfortable while wearing it, or sleeping on it!

HOW TO CLEAN

To clean your microfiber textile, simply hand-wash it with water, or soak in cool or warm (not hot!) water. Rinse and air- dry.

Sale in PH: Chiffon fabric for that elegant gown

Selling online: chiffon fabric!

Chiffon is a transparent and translucent lightweight fabric. It’s a balanced plain-woven sheer fabric most commonly used in formal wear, particularly as an overlay to provide an elegant, sophisticated appearance to a gown.

Like gossamer, the delicate fabric chiffon is the most popular choice for making lingerie, scarves, ribbons, and blouses. It’s smoother compared to the georgette fabric — and more lustrous, too.

The original chiffon was purely made from silk, but in the 12th century, a nylon version was invented, and in 1958 saw the creation of the polyester chiffon, which became extremely famous for being low-cost and resilient.

Chiffon is quite challenging to work on because of its light and slippery texture. If examined under a magnifying glass, you will see that chiffon looks like a fine net or mesh. And because of its gauzy nature, chiffon must be gently hand-washed. French seams must also be used to stop the fabric from fraying.

Check out our chiffon fabric that comes in many colors. This fabric sells rather quickly, so please contact us now for inquiries!
