Riban: Characteristics and Subtleties

Riban: Characteristics and Subtleties

Riban is practical and popular with material and is widely used for sewing clothes and caps. The fabric is a knitted canvas made using machine knitting technique.

What it is?

Riban is considered one of the most popular types of knitwear and is a cotton material created by transverse knitting technology based on double weaving threads. As a result of this method, both sides of the tissue are fully identical and look like a canvas associated with a small gum. Facial and invalid loops alternate through one, giving the material aesthetics and a neat appearance. The material is so elastic and elastic that sometimes it is called a bump band.

Riban is among the cross-knitted or couleary materials, and its manufacture occurs on special knitting machines. The form of the release of the fabric are rolls whose width varies from 55 to 130 cm. However, in addition to the rolled version of Riban is often manufactured by a circular knitting method, with the formation of an openwork and press pattern.

The variety of relief is achieved due to the special scheme of the alternation of facial and irons, which allows to obtain a beautiful cloth with an unusual weaving or perforation.

Composition and properties

Riban refers to the category of natural tissues and 100% consists of cotton. However, artificial fibers are often adding to increasing the scope. Share them are usually small and barely reaches five percent. Synthetic inclusions are represented by Liker, polyester, viscose and elastane. The presence of synthetic filaments gives Riban elasticity, makes it pleasant to the touch and contributes to the preservation of the initial forms after washing products. Ribiba clothing provides good air exchange and does not give the body to overheat during socks.

The most wear-resistant and durable is Riban with Liker and Rubber Thread. Things stitched from such a fabric are distinguished by maximum elasticity and are able to maintain their original forms, even after multiple styrics. Riban density is 190 g / m2, which allows it in its operational properties to occupy an intermediate place between the interlock and kashkorsa similar to it. An important point in the description of Riban is its hygroscopicity.

The material is able to absorb the moisture released by the body allocated and due to synthetic fibers also quickly and effectively evaporate. This property makes Riban an indispensable material when sewing children’s and sportswear.

Advantages and disadvantages

High consumer demand and a large number of positive feedback about Riban due to a number of indisputable advantages of this material.

  1. The fabric does not cause allergic reactions, it is characterized by good breathability and quickly removes sweat.
  2. Thanks to the presence of synthetic threads and a special type of mating, the material returns to its initial forms even in case of severe stretching.
  3. High strength ribanium significantly increases the service life of things and allows them for a long time to remain attractive. In addition, the material is not inclined to molting and shrinkage, resistant to the formation of rollers and is able to carry numerous washing well.
  4. The fabric is absolutely unpretentious in care, easily dispersed and does not require special storage conditions.
  5. High thermostat properties of the material are due to the presence in its structure filled with air micro. Because of which between the body and tissue, an air layer is created, which ensures that the optimally comfortable microclimate is maintained. As a result, the body does not overheat during exercise and does not shy at rest.
  6. A wide color palette allows you to implement bold design ideas and incarnate them in life when creating collections of home and casual wear.

However, along with obvious advantages, the shortcomings of Ribans are still. Among the minuses should be noted low resistance to burnout and long (in comparison with synthetic materials) drying after washing. This also includes the need to comply with some rules when drying riban.


Riban classification is produced in two criteria, the fundamental of which is the composition of the fabric. On this basis, two types of material are distinguished: natural and synthetic inclusions. The first species is presented with 100% cotton fabric from which they sew the sliders, hats and blouses for infants. The second is called an eraser and produced with the addition of synthetic threads. To increase the decorative properties of the tissue, it is often produced with Lurex and openwork inserts, and to improve its heat-saving quality – with double wrapped.

The second feature of the riban classification is the method of coloring. In the manufacture of clothing for newborns is more commonly used unscreased white riban, while for sewing everyday, home and sportswear fabric paint. According to this criterion, smooth and stuffed canvases are distinguished.

Color riban looks quite beautiful and distinguished by a large variety of drawings and shades. It can be both funny children’s images and contrasting stripes and geometric patterns.

Where used?

The most extensive sphere of using riban is sewing children’s clothing. The lion’s share of the summer and demi-season assortment represent things stitched from this universal material. Such preference of manufacturers of children’s clothing is explained by the good demands of such things and their high operational properties. In addition to children’s models, female and teenage underwear are sewing from Riban, decorating the products of the openwork, decorating the bows and beautiful inserts.

Often Riban is used for sewing T-shirts, turtlenecks and sundresses, as well as for the manufacture of sports kits. Moreover, for the production of winter and demi-season models, Riban is used with the case, which allows you to get very easy and at the same way and breathing clothes. Also from Ribans you can sew cuffs and collars for windbreaks and jackets, homemade clothes and pajamas. In addition, knitwear is very often used in the production of children’s and sports caps, home textiles and casual things, as well as as a stuffing material when processing Gorlowin, Cuff and Sleeveless.

How to care for home?

Riban, like many other knitwear, refers to a category of sufficiently unpretentious materials and does not require any special conditions for washing and storage. However, some general recommendations must still be. This will help as long as possible to save the color of the product and extend its service life. With manual washing, long-term friction should be avoided, and it is better to use the “delicate wash” modes, “synthetic fabrics” or “fast washing”. Despite the fact that the main part of the tissue is cotton, the mode intended for washing cotton fabrics is not recommended. The optimal temperature for both manual and machine washing is 30 degrees. As a detergent, it is desirable to use a soap solution or washing powder for children’s clothing or delicate tissues.

Spin products preferably produce on medium speed, and with manual washing it does not drench too much. In this case, it is better to slightly squeeze the product, and then flush it with a dry soft towel. Due to the fact that dries like a long time, the optimal drying destination will be fresh air. However, with linen hanging out on the street, it is necessary to remember that Riban is prone to burnout in the sun, so in order to avoid fast color loss, it is recommended to hang clothes in the shade. If it is not possible to squeeze the lingerie in the shaded place, you can turn it inside out.

It will also help save the color and brightness of the face. Drying turtlenecks, T-shirts, sports costumes and sundresses should be carried out on a horizontal surface, pre-fitted with a soft cloth. Otherwise, things can stretch, turn and lose their original shape. Sew clothes from riban on heating radiators is strictly prohibited.

Stroking things from ribanne recommended moderately heated iron, What usually corresponds to two points on its regulator. Ironing should be made from the wrong side using moderate sweeping. For items of everyday and sportswear, a vertical ironing and sweeping on weight will fit well. This will help better try the product and protect the fiber riban from the aggressive exposure to high temperatures.

Regular and correct care, as well as a neat and careful attitude to clothing are able to significantly extend the service life of favorite things sewn from this convenient and practical material.
