Ponte is a stable, thicker double-knit interlock fabric with full-bodied drape. It tends to hold it's shape, unlike jersey - so it works for more structured knit tops, dresses, skirts, and pants.
Deadstock is fabric that has been procured from mills and factories where there are fabric surpluses. Although many mills greenwash, by intentionally overproducing fabrics to sell cheaply as deadstock, we do our best to source true designer deadstock that might otherwise end up in landfill. Deadstock fabric is a great way to sew sustainably and save money on fabric.
