Producing 230s

Raymond has created the world’s finest worsted suiting fabric from the finest wool ever produced in the world – the Super 250s fabric made of 11.4 micron wool.

This fabric has been crafted out of the finest wool grade available in the world - Super 250s wool which is a mere 11.4 microns in diameter (a micron is a millionth of a metre) or approximately one-fifth the diameter of human hair! At 11.4 microns, Super 250s wool is half that of the standard wool grade for worsted suiting fabric which is 22.5 microns!

Producing Super 230sThe fibre of this bale comes from a breed of Australian Merino Sheep - renowned for its fine fleece. As this is an extremely delicate fibre, producing it involves skilled manpower and careful handling- right from spinning, weaving to the finishing of the product.

With the introduction of Super 250s worsted fabric, Raymond becomes the not only first Indian textile company to produce a suit length of such fineness but also the worlds first - ahead of companies from Europe and Japan.

The Super 250s worsted suiting fabric is available under ‘The Chairman’s Collection’, a range of international, supersoft and light fabrics with unparalleled comfort and luxury. Only fifty two pieces of these valuable suit lengths are created making it a rare and prized possession for the owner of this masterpiece.

Enchanting 'Expressions'

From Raymond's latest collection

Raymond CollectionDeveloped in-house, 'Expressions' is an exquisite collection of all wool and polywool suiting fabric. The 'Expressions' collection comprises innovative and classy suit lengths, trouser lengths, jacketing and coat lengths. The collection is available at prominent retails shops and ‘The Raymond Shop’ outlets.

We created this range of fabrics using specially crafted exotic fibres like Cashmere, Angora, Mohair, Bamboo, Casein (a fibre developed from milk protein), Linen, Silk, Soyabean, Tencel blended with Super 120s, 100s Merino Wool and fine polyester.

This combination of fine wool specialty fibres lends the fabric a soft texture with durability and drape while its versatility allows it to be stylishly fashioned.
