Quality Fleece Fabric: Fleece Fabric is a luxuriously supple fabric with a deep pile for better insulation quality. This is a synthetic insulating fabric made from a type of polyester called polyethylene terephthalate (PET) or other synthetic fibers.

Generally, fabric manufacturers in Bangladesh are comfortable and familiar with the basic fabric, based on cotton only. But they are not concentrating to make synthetic fabric such as fleece fabrics.

In this respect, Taipei Bangla Fabrics Ltd is an exception to produce various kinds of fleece fabrics made of polyester yarn and finest brush effect.

  • Cotton or cotton blended fleece
  • Polyester fleece
  • Lycra spandex fleece
  • Microfleece
  • Polar fleece
  • French terry fleece

Modern brush technology

Polyester fleece garments have become increasingly popular because of its soft and fuzzy feel characteristics. The pile surface on both sides of the fleece fabric, meaning each side has a layer of cut fibers is call brush effect.

Brush technology is a major part of fleece fabric manufacturing but for the lacking of technical expertise Bangladeshi mills are not ready to produce Micro fleece and Polar fleece that are made of polyester yarn. Taipei Bangla Fabrics Ltd has adapted all the technical expertise by modern machinery to produce specialized brushed fabric.

Dyeing process of mesh fabric

Polyester is an extremely difficult type of fabric to dye, especially if the fabric is 100% polyester. This fiber can be trickier to dye than plant or animal fibers. The hydrophobic nature of polyester fiber makes it difficult to dye.
