Gauze Fabric

Gauze is a thin, lightweight fabric with an open weave that makes it appear transparent.


More details

This fabric is generally made from natural fibers such as cotton, linen, and silk, but can also be made from synthetic fibers. It is a versatile fabric used for a variety of reasons due to its durability and absorbency.

It is said that gauze fabric originated sometime during the 13th century in Gaza, a center for weaving in Palestine, and was made primarily from silk. In fact, the name gauze is derived from the Spanish word “gasa,” which means silk.

Gauze fabric may be manufactured through one of two methods: the simple leno weave and the plain weave. The process most commonly used in the manufacture of gauze is the leno weave. Through this process, the threads of the fabric cross over one another, interlacing with one or more filler threads to give the fabric a sheer appearance while making it stronger. This type of weave makes the fabric lightweight and stronger while still allowing light and air to pass through it freely.

Less commonly used in the manufacture of gauze fabric is the plain weave. This form of weave is created on a loom by interlacing the warp threads tightly with the weft threads. The woven fibers of this weave produce a flat, tight surface suitable for printing and other finishes. The plain weave is the simplest to produce, making it the least expensive.
