Dormeuil’s Exel bunch book 607 features a Super 110’s plain weave fabric as well as a Super 130’s Prunelle (3 harnesses) weave construction.
The name “Prunelle” was derived from the French word for plum, “Prune.”
The Prunelle weave was traditionally used for scholastic robes and clergymen’s gowns and these were often made in a plum colour.
A Prunelle weave fabric has a smooth surface and unique luster. A heavier grade of this weave was formally used for shoe uppers.
The Prunelle weave is described as “warp facing” and this is because the warp yarns dominate the front (or face side) of the fabric.
For a very contemporary and refined look, Dormeuil’s pure worsted wool Prunelle weave in the Exel bunch (with 20% stretch) is a must.
