Explanation:

Ova vrste tkanine je najćešće pravljena od kombinacije pamuka i poliestera, ali se, u principu, više ne proizvodi u originalnom sastavu tj. postojao je samo jedan proizvođač koji ju je proizvodio kao takvu.

Jedna od mogućnosti je da se navede neki od opisnih naziva „pamuk-poliester“ ili „poliester-pamuk“ koji se često koriste u današnje vreme.

Međutim, ako se trenutno proizvodi/prodaje slična tkanina, onda je ona imitacija originalne, a želja proizvođača je da se po imenu prepozna sastav i kvalitet.

Zbog toga predlažem da se odabere naziv koji bi više ličio na trgovački znak nego na prevod. Mada, nisam ga našla u nigde lokalnim izvorima.


Kettle cloth: Made of cotton and polyester, plain weave stiff fabric, with a dull surface and a slight slub in the wave, which may be coloured. Used for men's light summer jackets, trousers and women and other casual dresses.

Kettle cloth is no longer made. According to one source that I read, it was last manufactured in the 70s. The staff at the fabric store confirmed that it is no longer manufactured. However, they also said that they just recently received one bolt. They went on to say that kettle cloth is very similar to Osnaburg but more refined.
Kettle cloth was made of cotton. There are some versions of weaver's cloth that are a 50/50 blend of cotton /polyester. The Osnaburg fabric that the local store is referring to is 100% cotton.

I love the kettlecloth I sewed dresses with in the 60's & 70's. I've been trying for years to find a similar fabric. It was produced by Concord Fabrics, Inc. and was a poly/cotton blend that looked much like linen. It had a medium weight and didn't need much pressing/ironing.

Kupci koji često kupuju majice znaju da su mnoge majice označene poliesterom ili pamukom. Poliester-pamuk i pamuk-poliester promijenili su se u dvije različite tkanine reda od dva znaka. "Poliester-pamuk" tkanina znači da poliesterska komponenta ima više od 60%, a pamučna komponenta je oko 40%; "pamučni poliester" je upravo suprotno, što znači da je sastav lica iznad 60%, a poliestera oko 40%.

disagree  gavrilo: Врло иновативно и маштовито, али пошто то још увек не постоји у српском, проблем је да ли ће (икада) та ваша 'иновација' заживети ;-). А потребан је свима разумљив превод баш сада (данас).
