What's Rib knit and where does it come from?

Let's take a fascinating journey into the origin and history of rib knit fabric, a true gem in the realm of textiles. Traced back to the early 16th century, rib knit fabric emerged as a versatile textile with a remarkable reputation for durability and stretch. Its defining feature, the distinctive ribbed texture, adds an intriguing element to any garment. This fabric's snug fit and ability to comfortably conform to the body made it an instant favourite in the world of fashion. From its humble beginnings to its present-day prominence, rib knit fabric has undoubtedly left an indelible mark on the fashion landscape, embodying both timeless style and enduring comfort. 


Different types of rib knit and how they impact the feel and look

The type of rib knit fabric you choose can greatly influence the feel and appearance of your clothing. From classic ribs to chunky fisherman ribs, each variation offers a unique texture and aesthetic, allowing for versatile styles that range from sleek and fitted to cozy and relaxed.

How to identify high-quality rib knit

Identifying high-quality rib knit fabric is key to creating a capsule wardrobe that exudes luxury and longevity.
