Bomull
Bomull

Cotton is the most common fiber; soft, natural and comfortable and easy to wash. Jobman pre-washed cotton twill is extra sturdy and durable, it ages beautifully, retains its properties and just gets more comfortable by each wash. One advantage of cotton is that it is relatively resistant to glow fleas from grinding, although it cannot replace flame retardant clothing. Keep in mind that cotton absorbs moisture, and is therefore not always suitable for working in damp environments

cotton/polyamide
Cotton/Polyamide

The cotton/polyamide blend is a comfortable fabric which is water and dirt repellent and well suited for clothing intended for dirty environments. Cotton/polyamide does not absorb moisture so easily and dries much faster than pure cotton. The fabric is comfy to wear and can take a lot of wear and tear without losing its appearance. This is a good fabric for workwear in challenging work environments.

 

polyamide
Polyamide

Polyamide is a fabric typically added to make clothes more abrasion resistant. Polyamide can take a lot of wear and tear yet it is a soft and comfortable material and it does not freeze stiff in cold weather. Clothes made from polyamide are resistant and well suited for work both outdoors and indoors. Dirt and sweat is no problem as they are easy to wash and quick to dry.

 

cavalry twill
Cavalry twill

One of the strongest twills ever designed is cavalry twill, originally designed for military breeches. Its structure gives the fabric movement and stretch. Cavalry twill is most appropriate for trousers and is ideal for environments where you need a durable yet flexible fabric. Cavalry twill is recognized for its distinctive diagonal stripe effect.

Polyester
Polyester

Many of our winter clothes and soft shell jackets are made of polyester. It is the most common fabric after cotton. Polyester clothes are comfortable, they stay soft and their low absorbency allows them to dry quickly. The fiber has excellent resilience and it can be woven, knitted and spun to fleece. Easy to wash, doesn’t fade and has a high abrasion resistance too, but polyester cannot be ironed too hot as it is not heat resistant.

 

Star Polyamide
Star Polyamide

STAR is Jobman’s own development, a highly very wear and tear resistant fabric we developed for very challenging environments. It is a modern 100% polyamide, ‘dobby’ weave. Close up you can see the little geometric star pattern of the dobby loom. One unique feature of our STAR Polyamide is that it’s equally resistant to tear and rip in all directions. The back of the fabric is ‘peached’ for a soft and comfortable feel on the inside. STAR Polyamide workwear can be worn all year around in all kinds of weather, it dries fast and is a good companion all day.

Polyester/Cotton
Polyester/Cotton

Cotton can be blended with polyester in different combinations to achieve a wide variety of characteristics. Blending achieves the best of both worlds, the softness of cotton and the resistance of polyester, making our cotton/polyester blends very comfortable and hard wearing. They are virtually care-free, perfect for workwear, as they can be washed often with little risk of fading or creasing. Cotton/polyester blend clothes keep their shape and are very suitable as profile or uniform clothing.

star Hv polyester
Star Hv polyester

Star Polyester is one of Jobman’s new selfdeveloped strong materials. It is a modern 100% polyester. A dobby weave, meaning mixed bonds, which give the appearance of a small star when you look closely. The unique feature of STAR is that it is equally strong in all directions which provides a well-balanced and durable fabric. The back is lightly brushed, peached, to give a soft feeling against your skin.

 

Core
Core

Ring-spun cotton/polyester is a unique quality with the best of two worlds. The technology provides a core thread of polyester which is enclosed by cotton. Polyester fabric gives high durability and cotton gives nice comfort against the skin.



 

Cordura

4-way stretch
4-way stretch.

Jobman 4-way stretch is created by synthetic fibers with exceptional elasticity. It provides extreme comfort, fit and flexibility and the opportunity for a tighter fit, without restricting movement. The wear resistance is high and since the material is elastic it returns to its original shape and size when it is no longer stretched

 

Quilt
Quilt

Quilt is a layered material with polyester filling stitched between two layers of thin, smooth fabric. It is lightweight also, even when it is very thick. Quilted linings are common in workwear for outdoor use in cold weather. Quilted workwear is popular since it does not restrict your comfort; the silky, smooth surface allowing layers of clothing underneath to move.

Kevlar
Kevlar

Kevlar® is a para-aramid fiber with extremely high tear and abrasion resistance

 

Dry-tech
Dry-tech™

Dry-tech™ is a man-made fabric which has wicking properties; it absorbs moisture and pushes it to the outside, where it will evaporate in microscopic particles. Dry-tech™ will keep you fresh and dry all day. Dry-tech™ will not fade or shrink and needs no ironing. It can be washed every day and dries quickly. Dry-tech™ is designed to be worn next-to-skin.

Fleece
