Polypropylene is popular in both woven and nonwoven varieties. Nonwoven polypropylene is advantageous because of its stability and strength for its size, and the chemical properties of the material make it easy to mold into various shapes for applications in a variety of industries. Additionally, polypropylene is easy to make, allowing manufacturers to save on costs, which keep products affordable for bulk purchases.

The material is also lightweight and colorfast, which means that manufacturers can color the material and it remains bright without degrading the quality of the plastic itself. Polypropylene does not grow mold or deteriorate in organic conditions, and it does not attract bacteria or mold. It features a powerful insulator and it is chemically resistant to all types of solvents.

Polypropylene is highly temperature- and moisture-resistant as well, making it an ideal choice for a wide variety of types of clothing applications. Nonwoven fabrics are designed for weaving, but purchasing woven and ready-made varieties allows customers to enjoy existing benefits without actually preparing the items themselves.
