History of Corduroy and Manufacturing in India
  • Presented By- http//www.cordplus.com/

  • Evolved from the ancient cotton weave known
    as Fustian, Corduroy existed for thousands of
    years even before it acquired the name it is now
    known for. Corduroy Manufacturing has been in
    practice since 200 AD, where it was first used in
    the Egyptian city of Fustat. Corduroy gained more
    popularity under the name Fustian, during the
    14th century in Europe, as it became a
    sought-after exotic fabric amongst royalty and
    wealthy Europeans.

  • By the 17th Century Fustian became
    commonly known as a cotton and linen mix woven
    fabric with a raised and sheared nap. However, it
    wasnt until the 18th century that Corduroy
    became popular throughout the world. In 18th
    Century England, Fustian was manufactured as a
    modern, practical choice of outdoor textile. It
    was during this period when the term Corduroy was
    coined in England as an early form of branding
    using the French word Cor-du-Roi, which
    translates to Cloth of the King.

  • While the slightly more expensive versions,
    made out of long brushed pile, and the most
    expensive version, which were manufactured in the
    true-cut pile using the original techniques,
    became the trend due to their use by the Royalty,
    the cheaper versions were also produced from
    brushed pile for use by the general public. Due
    to its ability to dry quickly, Corduroy became
    popular among School-masters and those engaged in
    ink-based trades.

  • At the turn of the 20th century, Corduroy
    became a sought-after property throughout the
    world, with manufacturing of Corduroy in Americas
    and Asia giving a new range of clothing style to
    the people in these regions. Corduroy became
    popular as a childrens fabric in the early 20th
    Century. Corduroys popularity reached a new
    height in 1920s and 30s fashion, with suits,
    trousers, caps and jackets being used for not
    only regular wear but also as fashion material
    for the modern, sporty age.

  • During the 1970s, Corduroy became the most
    popular material for clothing in India, as a
    less-rigid and natural material in neutral
    colours. With Corduroy clothing slowly becoming a
    trend in Bollywood movies, materials like
    Corduroy Pants and Coats became popular among the
    general public. It was during this time that
    Corduroy Manufacturing in India started
    developing as a productive industry in India.
  • Due to its ability to keep warm and its
    comforting nature, Corduroy is that special kind
    of material that will never go out of fashion and
    will always be a sought-after material in India.
    With new type of Corduroy manufactured especially
    as a shirting material and for women-clothing,
    Corduroy now has more versions and types than it
    has ever had in its almost 1800 years long
    history.
