stitch-bonding means: Stitched fabrics, also known as nonwoven fabrics, are usually made of a network of yarns or webs. They are often held together using sewing or knitting. Malimo was the first to trademark such a material in East Germany. Stitch-bonded fabrics can be made by laying weft and warp yarns on top of each other, without interlacing, then sewing or knitting a stitch to keep them together. These fabrics are suitable for clothing, home textiles and industrial textiles. These fabrics are more affordable than knitting and weaving because they use less yarn or fiber, can be made faster, and have a lower price. (in Fashion Dictionary)
