(or tabbinet), is a strong fabricin a plain weave of any fiber or blend, with crosswise ribs that typically give a corded surface.
Poplin traditionally consisted of a silk warf with a weftof worsted yarn. In this case, as the weft is in the form of a stout cord the fabric has a ridged structure, likerep, which gave depth and softness to the lustre of the silky surface. The ribs run across the fabric from selvageto selvage.
Poplin is now made with cotton
, silk,rayon,polyesteror a mixture of these. Being a plain under/over weave, if the weft and warp threads are of the same material and size, the effect is a plain woven surface with no ribbing. Shirts made from this material are easy to iron and do not wrinkle easily.
