FU-JEN Fashion Dictionary – Draping quality


Draping quality

It is the falling property of the fabric. Depending on the type and length of the fibers contained, the thickness and structure of the yarn count, the structural design of the weave, and the processing of the fabric, when it sags, it will appear softer or thinner, and so on. Also known as ‘Drapability’.
