Chambray (End-On-End) Fabric: Defined and Explained

December 7, 2009

Chambray (otherwise known as an end-on-end) originated in Cambrai, Northern France, where the fabric was first designed and used to create sunbonnets. The warp thread is of one color and the weft thread (running selvage to selvage) is always white. From a distance this gives the impression of a solid color, but up close a more intricate pattern is revealed.
