Tri-blend was introduced in 2006 as an answer to a market need for a fabric that boasted the resilience of polyester and the comfort of cotton, while being balanced with the draping potential of rayon.
Tri-blends have come a long way since their introduction to the market nearly a decade ago. It’s true to say that this fabric is likely the most influential to have emerged over the past ten years and today can be found across a variety of fashion industries.
More specifically, and for those who really want the full details of what this material is comprised of a regular t-shirt 100% cotton, Tri-blend is made up of three different fabrics 50% Polyester, 25% Ring-Spun Cotton and 25% Rayon which makes them softer. Kinda like a fancy t-shirt that runs a little bit smaller and have more stretch to them. Tri-blends are best for vintage style prints, high fashion, and athletics. They are best suited for a more vintage print with a softer hand.
