POPELINE (13 fabrics in different colours)

This name refers to a fabric derived from “papalina” with reference to the Papal City of Avignon from where it originated. The number of weft picks is only half the number of warp ends. This particularity permits the coloured stripes to be clear and bright , in comparison with the much softer weft checks. In fact it primarily became important since the 1960’s owing to the greater loom speeds that could be achieved on account of the lesser number of weft yarns, in comparison with the gingham or zephyrs of the past.
