3k plain is another very very popular fabric, not quite as free forming if your doing complex curves due to the tighter weave, but a great choice for flatter objects. Being a tighter weave makes it in some ways easier to work with, and pre cutting the fabric into shapes becomes easier due to the edges not falling appart as much as other looser weave types. Plain weave is simply woven 1 over 1 under, the finished product still gives a beautiful 3 dimensional look, and doesn't get anywhere near the weave missalignment like can be seen on a lot of twill weave products.

We allow up to 3m lengths to be folded, this may be helpful for you to reduce costs, however the weave will surely be damaged. If the apperance of the material is important we suggest using the rolled option. If cosmetics are not required then using the folded option will save you some money.

Bulk savings are calculated into the different length's, so the more you buy, the more you save!
