Rib Fabric Manufacturer

As part of our One Size Collection, the rib fabric features raised vertical ribs which provide a tighter fit to the body. Knittingham has evolved the rib fabric to create new fabrics like the Ruffle and also incorporates the rib in a variety of our jacquard fabric designs.

One Size Tubular Fabric

Knittingham specialises in the body sized fabric, with its tubular shape and seamless design. Composed of nylon or polyester with elastane, the elastane component allows the fabric to stretch comfortably to accommodate different body sizes (one size fits most) while retaining its original shape after wear. The stretchiness provided by elastane ensures a flexible and form-fitting feel, making the fabric both comfortable and flattering for a variety of body types.
