The weave structure, more open and loose, makes Hopsack an extremely lightweight and breathable fabric, recommended for unlined garments, such as blazers, in order for its properties to be highlighted. The quite rough aspect makes it the perfect choice if you are looking for a casual and incredibly crease-resistant outerwear.
Let’s start from the origins of the word; the term comes from the end-of-the-Nineteenth-century-English hop-sack, the sack for hops, and it has referred for some time to jute, the fabric in which the hop-carrying bags were made.
With the passing of the years, the use has changed and Hopsack is today a fabric for clothing, characterised by a very open weave. Its special weave is basically a variation of the common plain weave in which the warp and weft create a simple checked pattern.
