Corduroy Fabrics

Corduroy fabric is the perfect choice for making robust, durable children’s clothing for girls and boys. Cord fabric has long been used in clothing, often used for making strong, durable clothes for workmen. This is a fabric that has proven itself to be long-lasting and robust. This is important when making trousers for kids - you need something that can stand up to all that movement and constant washing. Cord fabrics don’t just have to be plain, you can also get a range of patterned cord.

Baby cord or large-scale cord - where's the difference?


Cord fabric
comes in a range of different finishes and is categorised based on how many velvety ribs are in 10cm of fabric. The finest cord is known as baby cord, or fine cord. Corduroy with between 25 and 40 ribs over 10cm is called Manchester or Genoa cord, while large-scale cord with less than 10 ribs is called jumbo cord. You can buy everything from baby cord to jumbo cord by the metre in our online shop.

Working with cord - see what's important

When working with cord, it’s important to keep an eye on the direction of the grain. You can feel the direction of the grain with your fingertip. Just stroke the fabric gently along the edge. If the little fibres move easily, that’s the right direction; they put more resistance when moved in the wrong direction. Jumbo cord should be cut with the grain, while baby cord should be cut against the grain. Make sure that the bottom edges of each pattern piece go in the same direction. This will guarantee a good flow between all the pieces of your cord garment.
