Bush Poplin is a microcanvas, consisting of yarns half the thickness ofthose
used in its beefier cousin, Orvis Rhinohide, yet nearly equal in it's
durability. Elephant Bush Polin is a light and soft natural fabric able
to withstand years of wear and washings, yet remains crisp and neat.
Each yarn of Elephant Bush Poplin is composed of several fibres twisted
tightly together, resulting in a fabric that is abrasion- resistant, yet
feels cool and relatively weightless on the body. maximising cotton's
natural advantages, the basic microcanvas weave consists of a balanced,
interlocking pattern of mid-weight yarns on the warp (vertical weave)
and slightly slimmer yarns on the weft (horizontal weave). This weave
maximizes yarn strength while allowing for a considerable measure of breathability.
You'll never feel stifled, even in the most wilting tropical heat.
poplin was the preferred fabric used by British colonists when on safari.
Our collection offers the timeless and classic style of this traditional
attire. Testament to poplin's versatile, rugged characteristics, it comprised
the bulk of the fabrics used on all fronts during World War II. For the
U.S. military, poplin fabrics struck
the best balance between comfort, durability and crisp uniformity, holding
up well to extensive field abuse and thousands of industrial-strength
washings yet still presenting well in review. A 5-oz. cotton microcanvas,
Elephant Bush Poplin is known for its comfort in warmer conditions, exceptional
travel-worthiness, and durability.
