Waterproofs - Laminates & PU
Welcome to our Laminate and PU fabric department.
These fabrics are medium weight cotton with a waterproof layer on top - making them waterproof on the side of the fabric with the image on.
Because the base fabric is cotton they are not as stiff or heavy as oilcloth and are perfect for dressmaking, bags, pouches, bibs, tablecloths, upholstery, the backs of picnic blankets and more!
What is the difference between Laminate and PU?
Not a lot! PU fabrics are not shiny whereas laminates tend to have a slightly glossy finish, so if you are looking for a more matt finish, or for a fabric that at first sight you would not think was waterproof, then PU fabric is the one to go for, but that is about it.
