It’s time to take a closer look at four lightweight fabrics in four composition categories that offer the consistency to help you overdeliver.


Lightweight cotton duck fabric stands out for its exceptional versatility and numerous benefits across various applications. Renowned for its durability and strength, this fabric is particularly advantageous in industries such as outdoor gear, workwear, and upholstery. Despite its robustness, the lightweight nature of our Number 12 Cotton Duck ensures flexibility and ease of handling.


Lightweight vinyl fabric offers a host of advantages that make it a sought-after material across diverse industries. Renowned for its water-resistant and easy-to-clean properties, our 8 oz. Vinyl Coated Polyester is a practical choice for applications ranging from truck tarps to machinery covers. 8 oz. VCP offers protection against mold, mildew, and UV damage. Its inherent resistance to moisture makes it an ideal choice for environments prone to dampness, preventing the growth of mold and mildew, keeping the fabrics integrity intact.


One key advantage to lightweight polyester fabrics is their exceptional strength-to-weight ratio, providing durability without compromising flexibility. Our 200 Denier Textured Polyester Oxford fabric has a durable water repellent (DWR) finish applied to the surface of the fabric, in addition to its urethane coating on the backside for added protection. Another stand out characteristic of polyester is its printability. When printed with dye sublimation paper transfer of screen printing, our 200 Denier Textured Oxford produces vibrant and detailed results. Our Textured Polyester Oxford is a practical and cost-effective solution for industrial applications ranging from bags and cases, suitcase lining, photo back drops, trade show displays and more.


When it comes to strength, lightweight nylon fabrics outshine polyester, thanks to their superior tensile strength and durability. Nylon’s molecular structure provides exceptional resistance to stretching and tearing, making it an ideal choice for applications that demand robust performance. Our Nylon Pack Cloth is particularly advantageous in outdoor gear such as backpacks and tents, where the combination of strength and minimal weight is crucial. Nylon Pack Cloth features a DWR finish and urethane coating, and we stock more than two dozen colors.
