Fade February Fact #5:
When manufacturing denim, there are a few ways to go about making the fabric. All fabric is comprised of warp (up and down) and weft (side to side) threads. Denim is typically woven in a 3X1 twill, meaning the weft thread goes under 3 warp threads and over one (to the right) creating a diagonal pattern going across and down to the right. It is also known as the ‘Z’ twill because the stitches make a ‘Z’ shape.
