Materials

The best materials to use when creating your Post-Couture garments are synthetic or non-woven fabrics. If you're wondering whether a specific material you have in mind will work well with our patterns or the lasercutter, ask us!

You'll find the quantities needed within the .zip that accompanies each garment cutting file.

Of course we hope that when looking for materials you also take its sustainability into account. Our friends at Refinity maintain a nice list of webshops for sustainable fabrics here. If you discover any materials you like and that work really well with any of our patterns, please let us know!
