Fabrics used to elaborate Ay Güey clothes
At Ay Güey, we have always believed that the comfort and satisfaction of our customers is the most important thing to develop our garments. That's why our shirts are made with fabrics that allow a pleasant elasticity for the consumer.
Using elastane and viscose fabric, we can generate shirts that fit the consumer's body and are fresh to wear.
The two types of fabric used in Ay Güey US garments are explained in detail below:
Viscose is a type of fabric known as rayon, resulting from the extraction of cellulose fibers from the core of some trees, converted into fabric threads. Even though it is a synthetic fabric, its origin is natural from the remains of little resinous woods or the cotton seed litter.
Originally known as artificial silk, when the term “rayon” appeared in the late 19th century, it came into effect in the 1920s. The term “viscose” derives exactly from the process of making a viscous liquid initially organic, used to make rayon and cellophane. In the history of fashion, we have the first records of the textile production of this fabric by the manufacturers of the English factory Courtlaud´s since 1905.
Elastane is a synthetic textile fiber that provides greater elasticity in clothing. It can be found in clothing made in conjunction with other types of materials such as natural, synthetic, and artificial fibers.
In short, it is a fiber that is the result of mixing two materials: polyester, which we all know, and rigid diaconate. Mixing these two compounds results in a fiber that has a similar structure to polyurethane but exhibits the elastic characteristics of spandex.
It is important to mention that fabrics are never created only with elastane since they would result in garments that prevent perspiration. So, when elastane is mixed with other fabrics, it makes them more flexible and comfortable to the body.
