Wholesale Oxford Fabric 

Oxford fabric is one of the high-quality textile products in the market. The material is derived from both natural and synthetic fibers. The leading producers and exporters of Oxford fabric are China, India, and Vietnam.  

What is Oxford Fabric? 

Oxford is an even weave fabric that is obtained from slightly thicker fibers. The weave structure is made by weaving multiple yarns together, where they are passed over one another in both vertical and horizontal directions. 

The fabric is lightweight, lustrous, and soft, which makes it suitable for button-up clothes. 

History of Oxford Fabric 

Oxford originated in Scotland in the late nineteenth century. The fabric was made by a Scottish fabric factory that used to name its products after famous universities, hence the name Oxford fabric. 

Oxford fabric was initially made purely with cotton fibers. The trend has changed over time and is now derived from a mixture of synthetic fibers. 

Types of Oxford Fabric  

The two main types of Oxford fabric are Pinpoint and Royal Oxford. 

Pinpoint Oxford 

The fabric is made with a finer and lighter yarn and tighter weave that help give it a softer and smoother texture. The raw materials often used to make this type are more coarse and cheaper. This is why this fabric is preferred for making clothes meant for casual occasions because it is more affordable.  

Royal Oxford 

The fabric is made with extremely fine and light threads and is the most elegant of the Oxford weaves. Royal Oxford is smoother, shinier, and finer than regular and Pinpoint Oxford fabric. 

Royal Oxford fabric is made with high-quality materials. That is why the fabric is used to make expensive formal wear such as shirts.
