On modern fire hoses, the fire hose fabric sheath is actually a nylon or polyester blend, but in the days before synthetic fibers cotton fiber was used.
Our Firehose fabric is a traditional heavy duty material that was used as the outer sheathing of fire hoses in the 1800's and early 1900's before the advent of synthetic fibers. Previously the material was woven in the form of, what is essentially tubular webbing and either tarred on the inside (in the really old days) or woven directly over a rubber hose, to reinforce it and offer protection from abrasion and pressure. Today this firehose material is still made, but woven as a flat, standard width fabric and used to make popular brands of high quality work clothing, most notably by a company named after Duluth, MN and trading in work apparel and accessories.
This strong material is durable, abrasion resistant, all naturual and makes an exceedingly tough piece of working wear, and becuase it is a natural fiber, is non-scratching and still soft on your skin. Sold un-bleached and undyed. This material works very well with water based dyes can be dyed or bleached nearly any color or shade. weighs about 11 ounces per square yard and measures approximately .029" thick.
