Gabardine

Gabardine

Description

Gabardine was developed in England in 1879 by Thomas Burberry, inspired by the coat of a shepherd which was made waterproof by dipping the wool. On the other side of the channel, this fabric wall called "burberries". In cotton or wool, gabardine is composed of threads sewn so tightly that the fabric is air- and waterproof. The fine, visible, diagonal grooves on the front of the fabric and its firmness make it easy to recognise. It is the reference fabric for blazers and coats, in particular trench coats, but it can also be used for trousers.

Care

Care differs depending on the type of fabric. In cotton, a delicate cycle at a maximum of 30°C is suitable. For wool gabardine, dry-cleaning and crease removal by a specialist are highly recommended. The same is true of coats and blazers, regardless of the composition of the gabardine, to avoid them losing their shape.
