Poplin is made of many fibers but the most common types are either made of cotton or cotton-poly blend. The name comes from a French origin but the fabric is popular all over the world. The fabric goes back to the 19th and 20th century when women were looking for practical and more budget-friendly options that would allow them to move freely as they were exploring territories that were restricted only to men. They needed dress fabrics that would look good and be comfortable to wear all day long.
Poplin is simply a fabric that features a plain weave of any fabric with crosswise ribs that give the material its typical corroded look. If the weft and warp threads are made of the same fabric, then the material will be smooth to touch.
Originally, poplin was made of heavy wool yarn with weaved fibers of silk. Nowadays 100% cotton poplin is one of the most common fabrics on the market. The resulting material is a thin yet durable fabric that drapes well while retaining its sturdiness

Advantage of Poplin Fabric
It’s breathable material. This is why some people use it to make sportswear. As a lightweight and breathable fabric, it can be worn all day for formal or office wear without making you feel too hot.
It’s one of the softest and most comfortable fabrics, although it’s rather durable. You can move freely while wearing a piece made of this material.
It has a lustrous sheen so it doesn’t look plain. However, it’s not too shiny so you can wear it for a formal occasion.
Poplin is also water-resistant. This is an excellent trait because even if you wear it all day, you’ll always have a polished look. It’s also stain-resistant, so it will survive those stubborn coffee spills.
This fabric won’t crease. This makes it an excellent choice for pants that you can wear all day long. People always choose poplin when they’re considering a sewing project for something that they can wear while moving and driving.
Poplin is easy to maintain because it’s machine-washable. It can withstand heat up to 60 degrees so you don’t have to hand wash it to maintain its condition. If you want to save yourself the hassle you can also dry clean it.
