Scuba Crepe Fabric Printing
This scuba fabric is the perfect material for clothing and form-fitting garments. Hand printed heavyweight scuba with a beautiful "crepe" face.
The front texture of the scuba fabric printed is distinctly "crepe" like. A slightly grainy and textured face and a plain, smooth back, adds depth and interest to the textile. Similar to a thin neoprene, this fabric has incredible elasticity, making it wonderfully lively and fun to work with. The scuba crepe has a beautiful drape, and returns perfectly to its original shape once relaxed.
The textured crepe fabric gives this material a stylish matt finish. The base tone of the scuba crepe fabric is a stark white, which is the perfect canvas for bold and vibrant prints. Colour intensity reproduction is bold and lively and details and fine lines are showcased in high quality. Patterns are disrupted when the fabric is stretched, more so on the weft, however the recovery is excellent.
This fabric has several usages, making it a versatile and appealing textile to work with. The scuba knitted "Lycra" has amazing stretch, particularly on the weft. The double layered Lycra knit is a heavyweight fabric at 290gsm that provides a smooth back and textured face, making it comfortable and easy to wear. Tight, body-hugging dresses and clothing, compression clothing
