We’ve compiled a short guide for you to understand the main differences between woven and non-woven fabrics along with their benefits below.
Woven fabrics are those that are formed by weaving. Woven fabrics are usually made on a loom, and made of many threads woven on a warp and a weft.
Woven fabrics, in most cases, are more stronger and durable than non-woven fabrics. This is because the woven fabrics are reinforced by threads crossing each other which makes for a stronger barrier.
If you are looking for something that lasts for longer then an item made from woven fabric will be more suitable for your needs. They are designed to last longer and as such, are not normally used as one-use items or disposable items.
Non-woven fabrics can either be bonded or felted together and can be used to make many disposable products including disposable bed sheets.
Non-woven disposable products include surgical gowns, masks, bed sheets, gloves, shoe covers amongst others. Many clinics, hospitals and beauticians make use of these disposable products on a daily basis.
