Pocketing Fabric

Pocketing Fabric

Denim pocketing fabric is just as essential as the other materials provided in clothing. Therefore, this fabric should be carefully chosen. The textile should match the style and durability of the accompanying apparel. Because the pocketing fabric on most jeans is thin, pockets are one of the first spots on pants that become worn out. It's also important that the cloth stays strong throughout many wash cycles. Threads can come undone and small holes transform to large holes.

The origin of pocket liners is usually from cotton, polyester or a hybrid of both. The percentage of each will dictate the pocketing fabric’s strength and texture. The more cotton, the softer the material.

Pocketing fabric is not only for jeans. After all, pockets have an assortment of uses. They can be affixed to a wall, bag or anywhere else that needs a spot to hold small items. This is the art of re-purposing. And it's practical. Because they are cleanly stitched on the pants, pockets are also easier to transfer from jeans to a new project. One of these projects could be several pockets sewn onto a cloth to hold all of your crafts tools.
