Interlining is an interlayer that is fixed on the fabric by different manners in order to obtained the desired look, quality and effect on clothing. It adds volume and resistance to processed fabric, contributes to the cloth’s shape and supports the fabric in different processes such as sewing, washing, ironing. It is aimed at supporting the cloth’s form and resistance, increase its wrinkle resistance and provide a certain toughness and form.
Used since early 1950’s, interlining has become an inseparable part of clothing products. Interlining can be produced out of natural or artificial fiber as well through “nonwoven” methods which are commonly used in recent years. Interlining consists of two basic elements:
COATING : An adhesive material that allows it to stick on the fabric
FABRIC (BASIS) : The surface on which coating is placed
