Greige refers to an unfinished knitted or woven fabric that has not been dyed or bleached. The fabric can be used for clothes, window treatments and upholstery, among others.
Greige fabric is typically woven from cotton or polyester. Most people purchase greige fabric to take advantage of its natural color and state. It is the most ideal choice for people looking for a durable, lightweight fabric to use for a dyeing project.
Most manufacturers purchase greige fabric in bulk. They develop their own prints, colors and patterns. There are different types of greige fabric, but the most common ones include drill greige, twill greige, satin greige and poplin greige. Each variant is used for specific products and uses.
