Fire retardant calico is pre treated with Proban, this is an inherent fire retardant chemical used on fabric that requires durable and trustworthy treatment. Proban is a registered trademark, any fabrics treated with Proban must meet part of the licensee agreement which means fabrics are made to last and are put through a vigorous test for their wash durability.
Our fire retardant calico is woven on a suzler loom using 100% cotton to create a 60x60x20 equal construction that weighs 115gm per square meter. The manufacturing process is finished by giving the fabric a full coating of Proban and an unbleached grey wash and then it’s ready to be used for the industrial trades, public events and general safety work wear.
A very versatile and useful fabric, the width of this medium weight calico is 138 cm which is a good general size for small to medium projects such as general dressmaking and toiles and clothing to home furnishings, crafts and accessories. Even though the fire retardant coating may not always be necessary, if you trade to the general public in craft fairs or online it’s a good precaution to take. Knowing the fabric you use has the extra element of being fire retardant means assurance for both you and your customers.

Please Note: The visual appearance of fabric and colour may vary on screen between monitors due to the different screen colour settings;
The actual fabric appearances, textures, colours and quality of your fabric may not be as what you see on screen, the dyeing process between fabrics vary due to way the fabric has been woven, constructed or treated. Another factor is the type of yarn used (coarse or fine), these are key factors to consider when choosing the right fabric for your project.
We recommend you order actual fabric samples of the fabrics you are interested in. With samples you will be sure of the fabric shade, texture, quality and the fabric feel, also you will know if it is the right fabric for your application.
Important Point to remember about your colour; i.e. RED may not be the same as our RED, this is the same rule for any colour, you must request fabric samples, we do offer free samples, simply call us to order them.
