Outclass dobby shirts

New from Outclass : Dobby Shirts. Dobby is a type of woven fabric produced on the dobby loom, characterized by small geometric patterns and extra texture in the cloth. The technique and loom date back to the 1840s. They allowed the weaver to raise and lower the warp (vertical) threads individually, which in turn created small, distinctive, geometric patterns in the fabric. When woven with very fine yarns, the fabric will have a slightly raised weave which allows for more texture than a plain weave. Outclass wovens are all made in Canada in owner operated factories that stand by their craft.
