polyester definition and meaning

What is "polyester"?

Polyester is a synthetic fabric that is made from petroleum-based materials. It is known for its durability, wrinkle resistance, and ease of care, making it a popular choice for clothing, home furnishings, and other applications. Polyester fabrics are typically lightweight, breathable, and quick-drying, making them ideal for athletic wear and outdoor activities. They can be woven into a range of textures and patterns and can be dyed in a variety of colors. Polyester is also resistant to mildew, chemicals, and abrasion, making it a practical choice for industrial and commercial uses. While polyester is not as breathable as natural fibers like cotton or wool, it is a versatile and affordable material that offers many benefits and is commonly used in the fashion industry.
