All About Fabrics
To fully understand textiles one must explore the interplay between its components. Here is a cross section of a typical fabric produced by Nüwa. It is comprised of a Top Layer coating, the Woven Layer, and the Bottom Layer. Each has its own unique role to play.
At Nüwa we have a talented team of 40 Textile Engineers who scientifically investigate various aspects of a fabrics construction to make sure it best meets the need for which it is created.
Explore our product innovations, NüHyde, NüSeal, and NüWash to see this philosophy at work.
Typically the Top Coating will be a Durable Water Repellent (DWR) that serves as a stain release and water resistant barrier. It could also be an anti-microbial, flame retardant, anti-static, anti-fungal, or wicking layer.
The Woven Fabric is the meat of the textile. It will provide the beauty and durability that we prize in finished fabrics.
In many fabrics produced by Nüwa the bottom layer is a water proof barrier made from an applied film or coating. It can have a multi-ply configuration that might include a waterproof/breathable film and a protective and wicking layer. Many of the attributes of the Top Layer added or duplicated in the Bottom Layer.
