No surprise here, cotton is one of the go-to fabrics for the summer season because of it’s durability and absorbency. Cotton is a staple fabric that is soft to the touch and provides all-day comfort. Spun into yarn or thread, this cloth is used to make breathable textiles of t-shirts, pants, and dresses, to name a few.

Another great fabric to invest in this summer is Linen. Made from the fibers of a flax plant, this fabric is known for its woven like features that most associate with a more island style. Like cotton, linen is a durable and breathable material that absorbs and dries faster than cotton.
Chambray fabric closely resembles denim; however, it is lighter in color, weight, and is woven differently. Unlike denim, which has a more thick and heavy texture, chambray is a fine and dense fabric offering the classic look of denim without the added weight. This textile is made from linen, cotton, or silk and is woven for a breathable, relaxed fit.
