What is Swiss Dot Fabric  

Swiss Dot is a sheer, lightweight plain weave textile with tiny dots at regular or irregular intervals. 

The dots are applied to the fabric’s surface to give it the desired pattern using several methods. For example, they can be woven, flocked, printed, or embroidered. However, the most durable dots are the woven ones.

The dots can be of the same color as the background. Alternatively, they can be of different colors, depending on the desired appearance of the final material.   

History of Swiss Dot Fabric 

Swiss Dot originated in St. Gallen, Switzerland, in 1750, where it was first made on handlooms. Traditionally the fabric was made from cotton fibers, but it is now blended with artificial fibers for various reasons.  

In the early days, the dots on the fabric were produced with swivel weaving, but this has been replaced by more advanced techniques such as embroidery and printing.  

During its early days, the fabric was used to make children’s clothing, wedding dresses, and curtains.
