A large selection of fabrics, ribbons & clasps

Here is an explanation of the fabrics, ribbons & clasps you can choose from, as well as the available colours, patterns & shapes.

When ordering, make sure to specify which material and which colour/pattern you want – as well as a backup colour/pattern when it comes to fabrics, if possible.

I do not carry any stock myself, which allows for a broader range of patterns and colours, but this means that the availability of a specific material depends on the manufacturer’s stock. Both KORPS and Selfmade have more fabrics, ribbons and clasps available, but I can’t list everything (Imagine how long this page would be!). Pretty much anything on their sites (that is suitable for the garment in question) is available to order, so if you, for example, want a ribbon that KORPS carries that I haven’t listed, just link it when sending an order inquiry. I’ll sort it out for you!

FABRICS

 

Options for every budget

From inexpensive polar fleece to luxurious wool, KOMUDESIGNS has options for everyone. 

POLAR FLEECE

Polar fleece is light, soft, elastic and voluminous. It has a high thermal insulating effect, while the fabric is robust and durable. In addition, it has had an anti-pill treatment done to it to reduce pilling. For a winter skirt, this is the cheapest option. It keeps away snow and cold relatively well, though it performs best when it is dry out. The fabric is lab-tested and free of unhealthy chemicals. Purchased from Selfmade.

Advantages:
+ Cheap
+ Easy to wash
+ Good for those who are allergic to wool

Drawbacks:
– Even with the surface treatment, the fabric changes texture after some time.
– Not environmentally friendly
– Not as warm, nor as good at repelling moisture as wool
– Few patterned options

RECYCLED WOOL

This wool fabric (wadmal) is a fabric designed to protect our environment. During the manufacturing of the fabric, the manufacturer has strict requirements for materials, dyes and other chemicals. The fabric is lab-tested to ensure that it contains no harmful chemicals.
In this woollen fabric, short fibres make the surface “rougher” after use and washing. Wool fabric in dark and saturated colours like black, red and blue can dry shed. Purchased from KORPS.

Advantages:
+ Warm
+ Breathes and wicks moisture
+ Better than polar fleece when it comes to snow and wet weather
+ Environmentally friendly

Drawbacks:
– Dark / strong colours can shed at the beginning
– Should not be washed frequently

FINE WADMAL (WOOL)

Just remember that ordering from two suppliers means higher shipping costs. Let me know if you would like a lining in another colour and I’ll send you some options – both Selfmade and KORPS has several other colours available.
