Bonded fabrics materials are made up of two layers of different materials joined together by pattern or joining stitches. For example, a polyester backing can be combined with a cotton face side. The backing is always more tightly knitted than the face side, giving a ruched or textured appearance (relief). As a rule, the relief is further emphasised by filler fibres inserted between the layers. The filler fibres give the finished material its desired weight and feel.
