What is corduroy
The original name corduroy is from French cord du roi means king’s cord. This fabric has a more distinguished pattern than others, it evenly spaced vertical rows of soft piles. Corduroy is a thick fabric with fine ridges running across its length. The ridges are called “wales”. Many fashion designers are using this fabric because it gives a new look with affordable textiles.
Varieties of corduroy
Corduroy has a different weight from thick to lightweight and it is categorised by the wales on them like micro wale corduroy and wide wale corduroy. So depend on the wale and weigh this fabric suitable for dresses, pants, skirts, or outwears.

Since “A letter from a Giver” collection, Earth Major has already been using corduroy and now it has become a signature of Earth Major in every collection. Some reasons why we start to use this fabric:
This texture is a very important element in fashion designing in terms of fabric surface looks and feels. The texture will give a dimension of the design and try to communicate to the people without saying aloud.
Like other fabrics, corduroy also comes in a wide range of colours from basic to not-so-basic colours and prints. The difference is because of the wales whether it's tiny or wide, the colour becomes subtle or bold.
